UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 16oz can, batch #3. English pint glass. Copper/amber color with a dense one fingered cream colored head. Aroma is piney hops, but is very faint (due the head?). Flavor is earthy, floral, and piney hops as well as some light caramel and a strong bitterness (for the style). Not bad, but nothing special. Thanks for the chance to try this Tim.

16 ounce can. Pours dark oxidized copper with beige head. Nose is mostly toffee and toasted bread with a shot of hops at the end. The flavor is pretty well balances with a shot of agressive hop bitterness at the end. Lingers a bit. Abrassive carbonation. Its not all that bad, but I won’t be buying much of this.

Can pours amber color with off white head. Has a sweet malt smell with undertones of hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and is too malty for my taste for this style. It would have been much better if it were a little hoppier.

Friend introduced me to this beer made just a little north of where I live. Great flavor combinations, I enjoy how the malt and hops are in balance and do not overpower each other. I usually do not think of good beers coming from cans, but this beer just goes to prove that you shouldn’t judge something by its packaging.

MeadMe (1513) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2010
A: Pours a golden shade with tones of amber. Nice tall head with no real retention or lace. S: Aromas of caramel malt, pine, and light citrus. T: Malty sweetness, with subtle hoppy notes. More pine than citrus. There is a big wet cardboard like thing going on that is less than impressive. M: Medium in body, ample carbonation. D: Rather forgettable.

drowland (7111) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2010
10/22/10. 16oz can. GUSHER! Cold, sat in fridge, never shook - exploded everywhere. Extremely cloudy orange pour with tons of particulates all over with a small khaki head. Light caramel and malty aroma with spicy hops and a touch of citrus. Malty, earthy hop flavor that is piney and spicy as well. Meh.

Not quite pale, pretty muddy amber. More malty than hoppy, not quite balanced. Aroma is roasty, a little resiny. Lingering finish, not very crisp. Overall a nice beer, but nothing incredible.

cbfobes (2811) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Poured from 16oz can, pours a dark amber orange with a thick white head and lacing, aroma has a nice amount of fruit and citrus with a nice malt backing, flavor has a weird front end with a good amount of sweetness, the finish is of more malt and caramel than anything else, kind of old hops. It kind of makes sense now that this was in the discount bin and on sale, must be pretty dang old, would like to try a fresh one some day.

rubbishystuff (2112) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2015 Hazy dark orange look. Big piney hop aroma and flavor. A little herbalness to the hops too. Slightly burn caramel maltiness. Mouthfeel strange at end of sip. Sort of all over the place both a bold hoppy pale ale but also flavors that are all over the place. Serving: Can

Can - Acquired in a trade with lb4lb. Cheers! Pours amber and cloudy. Fluffy head rises quickly. Nose is lots of pine and citrus. Almost candy like citrus. Mouthfeel is full slightly creamy. Flavor is overly bready with little citrus or hops showing at all. Slighly thin with very little finish. Not bad, but far from transcendent.
