A healthy portion of caramel malts gives this beer its brilliant amber color. Brewed with Glacier hops, this new American-grown hop variety gives the beer a unique, complex flavor (mint and citrus) with a balanced clean finish.

Pint on tap on Beale Street. Dark yellow color. Good adhesion, tropical fruit aroma, definitely different. Medium fresh fruit taste (starfruit?) with a bitter kicker. Points for originality in the style. Definitely a departure from the ordinary.

Pours clear amber with low white head. Aroma of rye, light citrus, light fruit, wheat. Taste is smooth sweet with very light bitter finish, almost like a wheat ale. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

kathouse (1016) - Nevada, USA - NOV 4, 2013
This is not bad for a Pale. More hoppy than typical in aroma and hop flavor. Balances well with the caramel malts. Light body and sweeter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013 Pours a dark orange/amber color. Fruity smell, somewhat floral, but also a little malty. Taste is slightly bitter, but not much. The taste is too common, nothing unique. Not much carbonation.

phaleslu (6554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Draft at the Westin in Memphis. Pours a clear, bright orange-gold with a small white head and a decent amount of carbonation bubbles. Aroma of sweet malts, sugars, hints of citrusy fruits, and grass. Flavor follows along the same lines. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Pretty basic pale ale.

On tap @ Superior Bar on Beale Street in Memphis - part of the "Big Ass Beer" offerings. Light copper amber pour with a thick fluffy head leaving big lacing. Caramel malts and fruity hops dominate the aromas with a touch of herb and floral. Taste is more bitter than I expected - a good thing - with a citrus and slight mango hops quality and a good dose of sweet caramel type malts to offset and balance. Pretty good effort for a town that doesn’t do much brewing. Would definitely drink again - in the Big Ass Cup too!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Draft at the Westin in downtown Memphis. Pours a clear honey amber color. A smooth, lasting, cream colored head ramps up into thick walls and solid sheets of lace. The aroma is very grainy and bready, showing toasty, biscuity malts that come across a little stale. Faded green wildflower and citrus hops are the counterpoint. Flavors follow suit, balancing between toasty, cereal laden crystal malts and peppery wildflower hop notes. The body is moderate in stature and semi-dry, with moderate to lively carbonation. Though largely inoffensive, this brew is entirely forgettable and utterly boring.
