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.

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.

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.

TwoDudes (77) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 19, 2008
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.

TomDecapolis (4546) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 23, 2009
Thanks to weebeillin. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of floral and light citrus notes, tobacco and caramel malt. Flavor of caramel malt, nuts and toffe. Citrusy hop notes and a touch of hop bitterness. I think this beer was getting a bit old.

tpseabird (29) - Dickinson, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Pours a clear gold. Aroma is light, but has a light apricot note. Light body, average carbonation, and light bitter finish. Not a Pale Ale favorite, but worth another drink.

Beerman6686 (4709) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2011
This poured a amber color with a white head. Aroma was light stale grassy citrsuy hops with a good bit or caramel malt. Flavor was very disappointing considering what i had heard about this brew. Light hops, but not even very noticable at all, mainlt dominated by 2 row and caramel malt. Not good.

16 ounce can. Amber color with a white head. Very bitter for a pale ale. Not much to start and ends up bitter.

16oz can thanks to blutt59. Pours a full hazy blood orange...looks deep murky brownish. Big yellow head with big bubbles. Nice sheen, rockiness. Spotty, suddy lace. Nose is flowers, orange blossom, caramel, maple. Taste is a bit soapy, mild caramel, fairly bland though but no off flavors. Decent richness. More like an amber ale. No really hop forward. Wrong SRM.
