Fruity aroma with beautiful color. Smooth and easy to drink. However the taste is plain like wind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

airrick2003 (443) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Appearance: pours with a pretty big tan beige head, nice density, beer is a very clear amber to brown color, good head retainage Aroma: malty but very faint Taste: malt caramel, some hops on the finish but pretty tame, Palate: soft carbonation, light mouthfeel, tame bitter aftertaste Overall: not hoppy enough for a pale ale in my opinion, kind of simple and bland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alpha10 (304) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2013
2013/08/26 - Pours a burnt orange/amber colour with a frothy, off white head that reduces quickly, but leaves a surface film and a small lacing. Aroma is caramel, toasted malts, grapes and dough. Taste is slightly fruity up front with a toasted malt/caramel base and a sweet and slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is sticky with average carbonation and a drying finish. Good, but nothing overly special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maltman53 (268) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours light-amber, light hay aroma though smelling a little stale, lively carbonation and lasting lace, medium-bodied, light hop, muted malt, finishing crisp. Got to give it a low score as there is the wet cardboard taste and smell of a beer that has been oxidized.

krumbum (500) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
A malt led scent that masked a light hop. A light amber appearance with a thin head. A slight fruity dry grape bitterness that fades to a malt hop backdrop. The flavors meld nicely and leave the palate refreshed with a light malt coating.

Camons (5610) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle @ Home. Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, flowers. Flavor is malt, flowery hops, green apples. Medium body, soft carbonation. 050810

coreyc1221 (260) - Truckee, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Some bitter tang aroma but still blanketed down by the yeasty, distinctly sam smiths flavor. Darker golden or lighter amber color with short lived off-white head. Tastes creamy out of fucking no where. Creamy with a bit of citrus in the background. This is way better than I had expected. Will drink again.

Hkrivera (88) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - JUL 11, 2013
Excellent pale ale! Crisp flavor that intensifies in your mouth. The dark color mesmerizes your senses since you are expecting a light appearance. Is the first beer I taste that carries a USDA grade (organic). Reminds me somehow a MILF from the university! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

imaragingbull (569) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle pours amber copper orange clear with well retained small head and good lace. Aromas of fruity mineral esters over a light grainy toffee hint. Med light body, semi chewy, medium carbonation finishes light toffee, lightly dry and sulphate rounds out the light floral hop character and med bitterness

Bose is sweet corn, light butter, light citrus. Sweet malts. This one is quite boring and lackluster.
