Pours a clear copper with a thin soapy head. Weak hop aromas. Flavor is a bit dull as well, some hop bite but very weak. Not impressed.

Fairly basic for a pale ale. Tastes more like a lager with some subtle hop additions. Very thick pale ale, how I usually like them. The aftertaste isn't bitter at all which is nice. Not offensive and It's not half bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with a one finger head and modest lace. Aromas of toast, caramelized malts, honey, dark fruit and some grassy hops. Taste is similar, mostly sweet caramel and toast with only a whiff of bitters. Light to medium body, minimal carbonation, thin mouthfeel and a sweetish finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin frothy white head of fine bubbles. Light orange and citrus aroma with some light cereal grains and biscuits. Color is a dark copper. Thin palate and flavor. Tea, light roasted grains, grapefruit pith and lemon. And a rather astringent and harsh late bitterness which is making the underside of my tongue tingle. Needs more of a malt backbone to offset the bitterness. An ok but unbalanced pale ale.

Of the three heavy seas beers ice tries so far, this is the one so far that seems like a let down. Better than most American lagers, but otherwise I would not necessarily reach for it.
