fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - AUG 26, 2011
A barely hazy reddish beer with a medium beige head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is floral and grapefruit, very nice though a bit faint. The flavor is fairly balanced, with a bit of bitterness and malt sweetness, but highly drinkable. A very good beer.

Bulk_Carrier (5914) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Poured into an English pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy burnt orange to amber color with a fingers worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Sly sticky lace. The aroma had some semi-sweet bready to biscuity malts with a mild soapiness. Grassy and earthy hop bitterness. The flavor stays true to the aroma, semi-sweet with a subtle bitterness. Mild flowing hops to malts aftertaste with the same sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionable sort of feel. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, this was definitely an English pale ale throughout and I could see myself coming back to if I could get it again.

Has a good upfront malt hit, fades pretty quick into a sweetness that is a bit much for me. Creative brew and I may re-review when I am not blasted.
