One of the worst beers ever. I dumped most of it down the sink. Thoroughly disgusting.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Appearance: Well, it looks like a pale ale. It has a very bubbly head with some surprising lacing. Lots of carbonation. Probably this beerís highlight. Smell: Musky. As another reviewer said, I kind of get a kitchen soap aroma in there as well, now that I think about it. Maybe some grassiness. Something about it smells sort of cheap. Taste/feel: Well... I donít know. Initially it tastes pretty decent, but then the feel/aftertaste really comes in. Thereís about a medium carbonation here, but the aftertaste has a -- get this -- watery taste. How? It just does. Itís quite odd. I can see how this could be a good beer when youíre thirsty after a hot day outside, but this really didnít even deserve to be poured into a pint glass. Itís definitely much better than typical macros out there, but as far as pale ales, this one misses the mark a little bit.

Does not have an overly hoppy flavor at all Pretty well balanced beer with some slight cardboard taste. Pretty refreshing and very drinkable.

shadey (1915) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Pour is a clear bright orange with a layer of light white lace. Aroma is nicely hoppy, with a clear malt backbone and just a touch of sweetness. Flavor actually reminds me briefly of a corn beer or adjuncts. There is certainly enough hops to call this an American pale ale and itís refreshing - but Iím worried about what is hidden here.

chinchill (2145) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2012
A decent, if rather subdued APA, with a relatively dry and light body. The taste is mostly of hops; flaws of omission (intensity and complexity) rather than commission. High drinkability; low interest.

teckdeck2008 (25) - Bryan, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Score: 81 Color: faded brown Nose: hops and sour mash with a hint of spicy-ness Taste: something resembling sour mash on the front end, a little bit of rye added to a sour mash flavor on the mid palette, rye whiskey and spicy-ness on the finish

This is shitty beer. Ratebeer.com wants my review to be more than 75 characters, and it is now, and this is indeed shitty beer.

just like their Amber ale this is quite a good beer! the only "negative" is the finish which is just neutral to me... definitely top notch

BMMillsy (1524) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 Cloudy yellow color with light head. Aroma is a bit yeasty for a pale. Not hop forward, but not a bad flavor here. Seems like a miss for the style, but not a terrible beer. Wonít go for it again, though this could be a good saegway to craft beer for Bud drinkers, I guess. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
