I must have gotten a bad six pack. I don’t get how this thing is rated a 44 with so many low-to-mid 3+ ratings? The one I’ve tasted so far (unfortunately, I’ve got a 6 pack to work through) was awful. Absolutely zero characteristics of a pale ale. More like a really bad and light-bodied lager with tangy/sour notes. Drain pour.

12oz bottle poured a medium red color with white head. the aroma part was pretty mild. I was expecting a bit more on this one. the flavor was ok but not what I would call a solid apa. light to medium body with mild flavor it was just ok for.me.

Pours a darker, lovely amber with a nice white head. Aroma is faint, but mainly dough and slightly citrus. Taste is crisp and fresh, faint hops and tea leaves with a very mild finish. Quite tame, but nice.

12oz bottle. Pours a rich amber color with a medium head that settles out quickly. Faint toffee aroma with a medium-bodied malty taste balanced by a hint of hop bitterness. Mildly sweet on the palate with a pleasing citrusy finish. A very nice amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOSSbrewer (1990) - Arkansas, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Had at the Tap Room in St. Louis in the summer of 2011 and number of other times. This was my first micro craft beer. Lots of fond memories. Pours an amber pale color. Very nice pale ale. Could be a bit hoppier.

From draught in the tap room. A very average pale ale that didn’t distinguish itself. Nothing bad about it but just didn’t stand out in comparison to many of their other beers.

Pours orange brown with a small white frothy head. Aroma is small citrus hop and cereal malt. Taste is cereal malts, grass and a small citrus and fruity hop bitterness

Une bouteille née le 15 janvier 2013. Une robe bellement cuivrée avec sa mousse généreuse et sa dentelle déroulée. Un nez de malts toastés, de caramel fruité, de terre britannique et de fleurs anglaises. Sur les papilles, des saveurs qui ne se révèlent que peu à peu : quelques aromates séchés dans un bouillon lié par des malts anglais. En bouche, un liquide peu corpulent avec un mouvement modéré des bulles et une texture presque aqueuse. Une finale dans laquelle se réunissent des notes astringentes et asséchantes. Tout compte fait, une efficiente recette.

Une bouteille embouteillée le 15 janvier 2013. Un beau liquide ambré que cette pale ale aux accents de malt grillé, biscuit et de caramel. Des saveurs de malt caramel se confondent avec les grains grillés. Ce côté grillé donne de légère saveurs métalliques intéressantes non sans rappeler la Fullers London Pride. Une bière agréable.

My Bottom Line:
Orange-scented tea leaves meet lightly biscuity and caramelized cereals in this bubbly, mineral Pale Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam settles atop the misty amber.
-The mouthfeel is fluffy and comfortable; poundable even.
-The finish is a continuation of the flavor profile: light sweetness, fruitiness and leafy hop bitterness.
-This is a good gateway beer for those who might be willing to make the jump into a world of flavor without going all the way into something pungent.
