A pretty easy drinking beer from Peticolas. Pours a yellow/gold with white head. Floral, citrus, and earthy on the nose, followed onto the palate. Finishes with a nice compliment of caramel malt that is not overpowering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper under a thin foamy light beige head. The aroma is a bit faint but has a wee bit of earthy biscuity toffee and a kiss of noble grassy hops. Taste is light and crisp and grassy, with light bitterness throughout and a semi-dry bitter finish. Light grassy and earthy toffee throughout the taste, like the nose.

On tap somewhere in Dallas. I think it was billed as just "Royal", so I am assuming this is it. Had a very nice malt backbone with just enough hops. Nice beer for the style, based on my limited experience with it. Not as hardcore hoppy as an APA, nice texture and nice finish.
