3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can. Amber color with a small, foamy white head. Aroma is a mix of caramel sweetness and citrus. Initial impression is big on sweet, toasted malts. The longer it sits on your palate it eventually gives way to a muddled citrus and floral finish. Well carbonated with slightly dry texture.
How can I not like a beer that pays homage to the good old days of Drapes, Malts and DMac?

Poured a clear orange color with aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, citrus, light hay and some light malt. Flavors are the same a nice grapefruit, zest and some malt. A solid pale ale overall.

Tasted from a pint can. It poured a hazy amber hue with a white bubbly head and minimal lacing. Aroma of lemon & grass (quite possibly lemongrass). Mild bitterness and hoppiness It’s a decent little number.

Had it out of a can. It’s okay. Pours a dirty non-appealing murky copper hue with a thin white head. Smells a not so good dank and the taste is slightly above average.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Balance of malt and hops was excellent. 5% ABV, and 16 oz. can, makes this a cheap session brew.

$2 16oz can poured into a shaker pint.
Appearance: A very nice orange color with some particles floating around inside. Two fingers of an off-white, soapy head sits on top and sticks around. Excellent looking beer.
Smell: Certainly a pale ale. A pleasant mix of hops and malts, with neither overpowering the other. Sweet malts with a bit of a citrus and tropical fruit vibe. Really nice.
Taste/feel: Comes in the mouth for a split second almost like water -- no instant tang, sweetness, bitterness, or even carbonation on the tongue. After a moment, the beer opens up to a surprising complexity for a pale. A very pleasant hop flavor without any serious bitterness or dryness that a typical IPA offers. Caramel malts are there to take away that bitterness and provide a sweetness that would probably make Grind Line appeal to the masses. Aftertaste is a nice toasty caramel flavor with a bit of pine that I didn’t get in the initial sip. Very pleasant.
This would be an excellent way of introducing somebody to craft beer, or somebody who’s into craft beer, but doesn’t particularly have a tongue for hops yet. This is a very good pale ale at a fantastic price. It has a great look when poured into a glass, has a nice nose, and the beer has a nice flavor that makes it very easy drinking.
