UPDATED: FEB 9, 2013 Aroma really kills this beer. It has none... a good pale ale should. Other than that it is a mild pale ale... easy to drink
Rerate: One of Good poeples better beers. Now in cans, aroma still lacking. If they would put some aroma hops (tiny bit more than last time) in this bad boy they would have something to get regularly.

Sample at Music City. Yes I turned around and got right back in line so I could make it through all of these guys’ beers. Pour is clear dark yellow almost orange color. Grassy hop aroma with an herbal somewhat spice finish.

Honey, dandelion, and barley malt bouquet. Clear amber, medium head, good lacing. Dandelion flavor, sufficiently bitter, with a grassier end. Perhaps a touch too dry, but the malt and hop balance is good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Draft sample. Orange/copper in color with a medium off-white head. Aroma: mild citrus hops & malt. Taste: mild citrus hops, malt, maybe some pine... all a little watered down. Light body, not much depth. Overall: average... but, to be fair, I am not really a fan of this style of beer.
Re-rate: I had a new batch of this last night - on tap, poured in a mason jar. Much, much better this time: Poured a dense, cloudy orange/ gold with a medium off-white head. Aroma: citrus, hops, malt. Taste carried out the aroma - still a little watery but for a Pale Ale not so much. This batch had some depth to it. Finally found a Pale Ale I can drink!
Original rate: 3.1

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a medium off yellow with a small frothy head. Flavor is like a watered down Hitch Hiker IPA. Taste is also watery IPA-esque. A mediocre and boring beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear orangey golden with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor both really struck me as more appropriate for an IPA: only mildly malty and completely overwhelmed by the hops. And the hops were oddly unflavorful, just bitter. Very unbalanced. Medium body. Dry finish. Not to my liking, and not what I’d call an APA. In fact, I rated this like a so-so IPA, but marked down the overall for so poorly representing the style. I’ll try again another day, if for no other reason that I’m so desperate to support my local brewer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at JClydes. Pale copper with a creamy disc of bubbles. Nice lace. Mild aroma of resin and light honey. Taste of caramel with a nice finish of resin and light citrus that keeps on drying. LIght-medium body is smoothly carbonated and finishes dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in Birmingham. Not a bad beer, but slightly water with a hint of hops and malt. My dad said he liked this beer - which is not a good sign!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice golden hue, very pretty lacing down the side of the glass. Head sticks around for a while. Very balanced malt and hop characteristics, very cascade. Not a dry pale ale, but not at all sweet; just enough to quench your thirst.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2009 Tap @ the 1st Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Hazy pale golden color. Thick rocky white head. Nice lace. Smells perfect. Nice deep pale malts. Flavor has lots of citrus hops. Gigantic malt body. Perfectly balanced. Smooth and creamy. Delicious.
