COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flashpoint Pale Ale is Golden Amber in color and has an enticing citrusy aroma with a complex well-balanced flavor. It has pleasing toasted malt overtones and a moderate hoppy finish. It certainly is a Pale Ale that will make you want to come back for more.

12 oz. bottle from my aunt CoCo. Pours a clear amber-golden color with a small white head and plenty of visible carbonation. Aroma of pale and sweet malts mostly, with some grass and crackers. The flavor is also really malty, with just a hint of citrus and grass. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Not the type of APA I like, and not too spectacular but not bad.

of all the American Pale Ales I’ve had, this is one of ’em. Red, thin ring of foam. Smell like caramel, toffee. Seems a little watery. Flavor is caramel and pine. eh...

Citrus, biscuit-like malts, and some earthiness in the aroma. The flavor leans more towards malty than hoppy, although the hops are there. It was relatively balanced, but it would have been better if it had been more hoppy.

Before i forget, it seems the yeast is interfeering with the good taste of this beer.Bitterness and hop taste is very good.Pour was a nice looking cooperish color with good head and nice froth that keeps.Hops are hard to detect and describe but there is a stronger malt presence, maybe some fruit notes./yeast.Taste and mouthfeel go well together with this toasty dry taste that matches well with the hops.Every once in a while you get a unapealing yeast taste,may not be so fresh other than that this would have won my vote to get again soon.I wont judge it by this until i try it again,too bad i dont know the date or storage conditions.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep amber with a small whitish head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted malts, hops, citrus and honey.

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a copper color with a fizzy white head, the aroma has a hint of hops and mostly soap, the taste is very much one note and has a finish of soap to it, this one is just not good, pass on it.
