Some kind soul provided this... either in a bottle or a can, Iím not sure... but the soul was kind for goodness sakes.
Pours a pale golden with a small head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is piney and hop forward with some light caramel.

The flavor has a nice bitterness, itís lightly sweet with plenty of punch and fruity hop character. Itís got some grapefruit and pine without a lot of caramel distraction,

quaffable!

Can thanks to my Winter Secret Santa. Mostly clear amber pour with a small head that fades to a nice thick ring and leaves very nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat weak but pretty nice. Sweet fruit, honey, floral hops, and light grapefruit. Tastes decent. More grassy to mix with the citrus and floral hops but thereís a nice honey sweetness up front thatís nice. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium body. Pretty decent APA.

NachlamSie (2809) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pint at Snack Bar. Pours a hazy copper with a long lasting white head. Aroma is balanced with token grapefruity hops and a little caramel. Itís grassy and almost metallic, not off-putting though. Palate is medium. Reasonable bready malts are highlighted by approachable hops. There are faint tart flavors creeping around, but not much. Finish is quick. Reasonable.

Pleasant piney aroma of American hops. Attractive. Taste is nicely bitter and hoppy but a little short on the malt. Finish too is a little thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Found this in some crappy gas station of all places. Not sure why it was there and not in one of the places known to have beers from all over but that goes back to this areas craptastic distributors. Sorta hazy light amber brew that has the aroma and taste of some serious citrus hops. So much hop flavor makes me think this should be reclassified as an IPA rather than a Pale Ale. Good stuff and considering it is in a can that is saying alot. Can shows this was made in September. So why the "Availability: Jan-Mar" in description?
