2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought at cheap Grocery Outlet.
Actually not too bad looking ,its a slightly hazy copper colour with a nice sized frothy and thick light tan head.
Aroma, mostly malty though with a tinge of hop.
Very malty for an American Pale,, semi-bitter with a slightest hint of hop in the end, some sourness, slightly peppery.
Mouthfeel is alright, just average.
Overall a very average beer, not horrible ..just another contract brew.

Bottle, $4.99/sixer at Albertsons. Dark amber color, khaki head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of weak citrus hops and caramel, taste is spice up front, a little too sweet, ends with bitterness.
