Base: murky amber.
Palate : medium bodied, bit astringent.
Taste: slight nutty with caramel sugars, hinted with black soil. Noted lemon grass, ending with black tea.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent pale copper with foamy white head. Smells of pale malt with notes of hops and mild soap. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. An underwhelming example of the style.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Nice, earthy pour ... a hazy, orange-copper beer, the head is thin but firm. The aroma is solid all the way around ... full of citrus bloom. This drinks with a musty cover over the top, but fulfills all your desires for an Amerian Pale Ale, ripe with citric sting and a well balanced and full body background. (#5193, 8/11/2013)

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a cold can. Hazy orange color, slight head, slight sediment. Hops and citrus smell. Sweet, citrus sweet taste.

Can. At first sip it tasted great but the aftertaste is like household cleaner. Not sure why but its got a funky residue.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Silver tallboy can. Very cloudy, apricot bronze. Lots of malt, caramel and fruit in the aroma. Very drinkable, and not all that hop-assertive. Mouthy, with a long jammy aftertaste. Every now and again there was the resinous pine note, but this brew is more about malt. Thanks to PorterPounder - split one with him over at his place.

Chattanooga, Tn. - Riverside Wine & Spirits - 16 oz can. Dark auburn pour, medium thick off-white head, nice thick lacing. Aroma has nice piney resiny notes, some floral notes. Flavor has a heavy bittersweet citrusy presence, some caramel sweetness to balance it out, some spearmint notes on the back end. Thickish mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly cloudy bronze and light copper coloured body with a bit of an orange glow and a nice, thick, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, peaches, light hops, grapefruit, pine and a bit of toffee. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hoppy notes up front with a thick body and a great balance of malt. Aftertaste shows some good hop characteristics with pleasant assertive alcohol and floral notes and a bit of a kick of pine and grapefruit with plentiful sugars. Overall,a very nice APA with the depth and body of a much higher abv beer than this one - great all the way around, especially from a can. I sampled this 16ounce pint sized can purchased earlier today from Merchant;s in Dearborn, Michigan for US$2.69 sampled today, 02-August-2013 in Grosse Ile, Michigan.

Total Wine, Fairfax 4-pak: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops. Light malt backbone. Not really all that bitter or hoppy in the taste. Not a remarkable example of the style, but drinkable.

Great Anerican beer. Good hop taste. Good look and lacing. Good brew. Would recommend as an example of American pale ale.
