Initial spiced bread and hops, earthy caramel background. Clear dark amber color. Bittersweet bread flavor. Some toasty barley. Crisp start, soft papery finish. Too dark to be a pale ale. Beer of choice for the slopes.

Bottle from whole foods SLC. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Not much of the nose. Very malty on the tongue. Finishes clean. Prefer my Pale Ales brewed to style.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer is not a notable example of an American Pale Ale; however it hits English Best Bitter on the head starting with its burnt sugar aroma to its toffee malt flavor balanced with a nice clean hop note. Finishes semi-sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Best before 5/16/13... Mostly clear darker amber orange color. Nice thin off white head, leaves good lace. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Nice malt profile - good amount of caramel malt, some toasty, biscuity malt. Light spicy malt / hop. Little earthy hop, but this is much more malt forward, thankfully the malt profile is pretty interesting. Light to moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter, light spiciness. Pretty solid pale ale, especially considering how unfresh it is, and the light ABV. The complex malt profile carries it.

Friend brought this back for my from Utah, thanks John! The aroma is malty, caramel, cardboard, with a bit of hoppy grapefruit coming through. The flavour also starts out with solid malty caramel, grain, candied orange, grapefruit. Simple, solid, interesting, enjoyable, great session beer.
