MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUL 21, 2013
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.

Nice aroma of fresh bread, and malt. Deep orange amber color with a tan head that quickly fades. Rich sweet malt up front. Some caramel, and a slight toffee note follows initial sweetness. Dry bitterness next. Slightly watery mouth feel. Finish is mostly balanced, with a slight peppery bitterness right at the end. Not bad.

Not especially great rather flat and uninteresting. Could do with more malt flavour..

12 oz. bottle pours a sparkly brownish gold color with average white head and a bit of lacing. Aroma has grains and malts. Flavor is bready and grassy. Taste is slightly bitter, with light to medium body, average carbonation, and a crisp mouthfeel. I expected more hops in a pale ale. Nothing bad here, but nothing memorable either.

Bottle. Aroma is mild malt with resinous hops and some basement aroma. Appearance is clear golden brown with nice sparkle, 2 finger-width head with fair retention and fair lacing. Taste is light sweet which is dominated by light bitter. Palate is light bodied with thin texture with average carbonation and bitter-dominant finish. Overall, a pretty mild offering that looks nice and is more bitter than sweet.

an average pale ale. strong pale malts dominate with really no other flavors. maybe a hint of hopps. bitter finish. smells malty and pours deep copper with a thin white head. had out of a bottle at home..average.

Floback (546) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle as part of a Schlafly sampler pack. I enjoyed their pumpkin ale so much, I wanted to try some others by them. Pours a standard amber color with a half inch of white head that recedes quickly. Loose, spotty lacing on the glass. Thin aroma of grains. Flavors of bread, subtle malty caramel. Not much else. Medium carbonation and medium body. This isn’t a bad tasting beer, but very boring and forgettable. I certainly hope the oatmeal stout and APA in this pack are better than this. Otherwise, I’ll be sticking to their pumpkin ale as the only recurring purchase of Schlafly’s offerings.

Not good, expected better from shlafly. Might want to drink something better before having this one. Maybe its the style, not my fav

Single bottle from Binnys. Pours yellow / little hazy. Nose and initial taste a little hoppy but not outstanding. Good; not great.

March madness 2015. The pale ale is pale. It is as it is supposed to be, a little middle of the road. So it’s easily drinkable but it’s not all that interesting. Buttery malt texture saves it.

March Madness 2015 - Budsweiser on steroid hops?!? A light beer that tries too hard.
