Not a bad attempt but falls flat in comparison with the great pale ales out there. Low on bitterness, rounded fruity character, a bit watery.

Honey malt. Bitterness in the finish but more of a malt focus. Would be great for bratwursts.

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2014
Cask sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a slightly hazy golden brown with minimal white head. Aroma of light pale malts and grassy floral hops. Taste follows, light and easy, kind of more of an English pale ale than an American. Not bad, but nothing great.

PorterPounder (5592) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Warner Robins, Ga - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour, tight, snow white head that sticks around a while. Aroma has some yeasty accents, a touch of pear-like fruitiness. Nice light bitterness with a light citrus touch, some honey sweetness, a bit of cake mix sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice textured feel to it. Pretty solid.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Syrupy, sherry-like American caramel malt with limp spinach leaf and compost pile hop rawness and faint hints of pine and citrus. Medium body, low carbonation, acidic but still flabby. Bottle. Slightly oxidized.

Grassy hops and bready malts make for a very traditional "beer" aroma. This smells much more like a pilsner than a pale ale. It’s entirely possible that the only difference is the yeast that was used. It’s a nice, clear golden-brown color. The taste is very clean and crisp, with a slightly bubble-gummy flavor to start, balanced by grassy hops and a certain pilsner crispness throughout. My issue with this beer isn’t necessarily the flavor, but the identification as an American pale ale.

jredmond (5458) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle shared with Linh. Pours a clear golden copper body with no head and thin white lacing. Aroma is plain malt. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of sweet malt, breads and vague hop. No good.

GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, dark, copper color, with a small, bubbly, cream-colored head. The aroma is butter toffee, resinous hops, and a little maple syrup. The flavor is very sweet, lightly bitter, and pretty spicy. Medium body, sticky, metallic, and thick. Overall, this is a very sweet, malty pale ale. Not as hoppy and bitter as most would expect, but a nice, interesting, and delicious beer.

sethdude (701) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pours brassy gold in the glass- thin head, no lacing. Aroma is sweat, breast malt with a very fain lemony note. Flavor is very subdued for the style- strong malty backbone gives way gradually to some peppery hops and a grassy finish. More akin to an English than an APA, and better for it, IMO. Refreshing.

Cybercat (3377) - Georgia, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Comes out of the tap a dark honey-amber, not much of the ivory head but that is how the bartender poured it. Crisp, malty aroma has a nice and subtle hoppy undertone. Malty flavor is quite hoppy, almost like a good IPA, scarcely bitter and somewhat woody. Texture has average thickness and fizz, but leaves a nice malty and hop-woody finish. Grab a Cold One!
