Decent Sierra Nevada imitation. Low hop slightly malty for me more of a British pale style

"fairly typical and average english style pale ale. admitedly not my favorite style, but there have been standouts. This isnít one. Decent floral hops and malt balance, but a little cardboard going on. Meh."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Las Vegas. NV - Total Wine - Summerlin - 12 oz bottle. Dark orange pour, slightly hazy with an off-white frothy head, decent lacing. Aroma has a ripening vegetable quality to it with a hint of onion powder - odd - but not off-putting. Flavor has some peach-like frutiness, just a hint of citrus bitterness and some ripening vegetables in the back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Enjoyed this after a long day of hiking at Canyonlands National Park overlooking the canyon at Grand View Point Overlook,

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue and a white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of earthy citrus with light grain and grass backing. Flavor is more grassy with some sweet grains and a strong biscuit backbone.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2014 Six pack from Dickís. Pours amber color with a small, fizzy head. Aroma is pretty weak, has metallic undertones with a little grassiness and soured grains. The palate is light and the flavor is just as the nose let on. There are notes of pennies, grass, earth, caramel, and a kind of lactic finish. I have had other offerings from Santa Fe I prefer.
[June 2, 2014}
Hereís another bottle from that six pack. Iím really starting to have a disdain for this beer. The aroma has redeeming qualities of grassy hops and grapefruit, but a prominent metallic quality along with soured grains. The flavor is strongly metallic again with a mineraly finish. The finish is almost tart and seemingly unclean. It doesnít have that cleanliness or refreshing quality I look for from the style at all.

A- Malty, hoppy.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Balanced, slightly bitter, malty.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, crisp finish.
O- I was surprised with how mild this was. Not that bitter at all and almost reminded me more of a lager of Pilsner. Overall, if was a pretty average beer.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour is a clear copper with a large white head. Aroma is sweet malt and that is not even that strong. Flavor is more caramel malt then anything else with hops no where in the picture. This was bland, utterly flavorless and down right poor.
