Pouring it into a standard tumbler, it radiates a bright golden amber with glimmers of straw yellow highlights. It appears crystal clear with constant trails of carbonation that calmly float from the bottom of the glass, building a fluffy white 3-finger head of large bubbles that melt into a creamy froth, leaving minimal fragile lacing along the sides of the glass. * * *
The aroma holds quite a bit of grainy honey wheat bread and soft caramel in the backbone. Elsewhere, there are plenty of fresh floral hops and tropical citrus hops, including grapefruit pith and lemon peel, with a small possibility of some papaya, that overwhelms my nose initially. Faint piney hops hide in the background, while something spicy and resembling graham cracker brings up the rear. Overall, it is very reminiscent of an IPA. * * *
Starting off with a slow sip, I’m met with caramel, wheat bread drizzled with honey and sprinkled with brown sugar, and grainy, toasted malts. All of the early flavors prepared my tongue for the dry, lightly spicy hops, comprised of zesty grapefruit and lemon pulp as well as some pine notes. The generous amount of hops in this American Pale Ale awakened my tastebuds before smoothing it all out with a final blanket of sweet pale malts. * * *
The Osiris Pale Ale falls into the medium-bodied range once it warms up a bit, though fresh from the refrigerator, it starts more with a lighter mouthfeel. Regardless of body, though, it remained crisp and smooth the whole way through, especially with the lively carbonation, and finished dry and slightly bitter – which is the least I would expect coming from such an aggressively hopped beer.

Sweat papaya and mango aroma with a very crakery malt smell to match. Taste is very sweet papaya and mango initially, mild hop bit in the finish. Crackery biscuit malt carries throughout. I remember this beer being more dank hop heavy.....maybe it’s because I drank it out of a growler that had been in my hot car for a few hours before I put it in the fridge.

Dark amber pour with a white head. Aroma is faint citrua with not much else. Nothing special about this pale ale, moderate hops and citrus flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from the brewery - Pours golden with a filmy off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, apricot, mango, and a touch of pine hops with a sweet, lightly bready malt base. The malt isn’t overly sweet and dries out after an initial fruity blast.Taste is the same, with the hops balancing between grassy and herbal and citrusy. Dry malt base with just a touch of sweetness peeking through on the finish. Thin and well-carbonated--a bit bubbly. Solid stuff--reminds me a bit of New Glarus Moon Man, though with a slightly different hop profile and a bit sweeter.

Can. Honey-colored with soft haze and a thin head of sandy tan foam. Dried orange peel, burnt sugar, pine needles and wet grass in the nose -- a very green, chlorophyll-filled aroma. Sugar cookies add balance in the background. The flavor replicates the fragrance, though the teeter-totter tilts a little more toward the side of grassy bitterness, with subtle honey rolls mixed in. Thick medium body; mild CO2. Meh.

16 oz. can supplied by StFun -- many thanks! Served at 52½°F on a breathtakingly alluring spring day.
To long-stemmed white wine glass, it pours an orange with which a sudsy off-white head 1½ fingers in length stood.
Aromas of bar soap, chives, beach sand, herbal hops, and American ale yeast.
Tastes much the same with the addition of chalk dust, sweat, and damp cardboard. Not much hop flavor, which was a letdown.
Decent drinking for a pale ale.
