Decent enough pale, with malty, carmel hints, no aftertaste to speak of, you can drink mountains of this stuff, as I did last weekend!

Light gold body, thin off-white head. Nose displays floral, grapefruit, some grassy, cutrisu & lightly toasted malt. Flavor is orangey/citrus hops, some grassiness and a bit of toasted malt. Quite bitter toasty (lightly bready) finish. Lingering grapefruit.

what is ther to say about this beer? itís only downside is itís hard to find unless you hail from the southeastern United States. Briliant taste is intensified with the exhalation of some killer dank smoke. The best beer to go with any buds. I admit itís downgraded from a 5 to about a 3.5 without the additon of marijuana. Is this why they call it 420 ale... They claim cause it was first brewed on april 20th.. .but then again donít their tours start at 4:20 too. If you like bud, try this beer. if not try it anyway! if you can find it.

Bottle from Degarth. Pours coppery with a white head. Smells malty with some grass, hay and citrus. Tastes somewhat caramelly with light tealike hoppy notes. Finishes peppery and on the watery side.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong hoppy aroma from a light coppery, sparkling beer with a slightly off colored head that went away quickly. A light initial flavor and a light bitter finish which is fairly short lived. Had a light to medium body, a dry texture, and lively carbonation. Good lake beer not harsh and not bland.

Bottle. A fairly excellent APA quite possibly one of the best I ever tasted. Very well balanced, just the right amount of hops as well as fruitiness. Flavors of buuterscotch are also noticeable. The beer finsihes with a lasting bitterness. Lacing is quite nice and the head is of medium size.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very well balanced APA...sweet caramel and toffee malt with a generous pine and citrus hopping. The combination is a very refreshing and easily sessionable pale ale. I would eagerly seek this one out again.
