The aroma is a bit biscuity with hints of soap, fruit, and funk. The appearance is pale gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with both good malts and not so good ones. The hops are there but the bitterness is odd. The palate is thin. I like only the biscuit taste not much else.

malvrich (191) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2016
12 oz. bottle dated best by 5/17/16 so assumed to be 6 months old. Into a tulip A: Poured mostly clear orange tinted gold with a small tight head. Nice retention and lace. Little carbonation visible. S: Simple malty roast bread smell. Not much else. T: A bit of citrus (orange zest?) is quickly overwhelmed by pine. Well balanced light flavors. M: Light bodied with a slightly resinous short finish. Lightly crisp carbonation. O: Not much to this but certainly not bad. Typical pale ale flavors with nothing overdone. Overall though, underwhelming.

Terrible aftertaste. Would not order again. At least it's kind of refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of grains, citrus hops, brown sugar, malt, yeast. Taste has a bit of a bitter hoppy bite that gets watery, with bready yeast, grass, malt. Lingering watery yeast and hops. Very drinkable.
