Yadda, yadda, yadda. BFD!! Slightly darker yellow than the average piss poor macro. Off beige head is pretty. So lightly hopped it doesn’t matter. Roasted grains are detected, unfortunately those grains are corn and wood. Quick finish is wayyyyy too quick if you ask me. This is not horrible, yet it IS horribly mediocre.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed May 31st, 2013.
The appearance had a clear golden amber body with red/brown tints here and there, one finger white foamy head that quickly dies and leaves a bubbly film coating the top of the body, some sticky lacing graces the sides of the glass.
The smell had some bready, malty, strong scent of caramel.
The taste was sweet through the previously mentioned flavors, no aftertaste, dry finish.
On the palate, it sat light, sessionable, carbonation is spot on.
Overall, this is not a bad English pale ale and doesn’t get that "soapiness" some English Pales do, those who are normally turned off by the "soapiness" from English Pales could be pleased with this one, I would have this again.

From the 355 ml. bottle. The pour is a handsome looking medium amber the way I like this style to be. A short-lived head. The aroma has a nice caramel and roasted malt note and a an earthy hop background. Light to medium body. Interesting caramel roastiness in the taste with a somewhat astringent but modest hop bite at the end. Pretty typical and enjoyable for the style.

12 oz bottle: Appearance is golden brown with minimal head. Aroma faint in malt. Taste bland in malt, but not bad. Well worth the 3.99 for the 6 pack.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is hop dominate. A clear copper pur with a non-lasting thin white head no lacing. The taste is a combination of citrus and sweetness. Corn mild, not bitter at all. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, not great, but would be a nice simmer session brew.
