Deep gold with a 2 finger head that faded rather quickly, but had decent lace. Deep honey malt aromas with a slight citrus smell mixed in. Upon first tasting its a big honey malt followed by a subdued hop flavor finishing with a decent mix of the two. Pretty evenly balanced.

Bottle, Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow. Small one finger white head that dissipates quickly. Slight floral and fruity hop aroma. Pale malt. Nothing to crazy. Taste is some pale malt with a nice touch of hops flavor. Nothing overwhelming. Has a little fruity sweetness. Nothing too complex but a solid English pale. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Easy to drink. Quick finish a little metallicy.

Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of orange and malt. Taste has some maltiness to it, mostly has a watery hoppy flavor to it. Orange zest and coriander. I’d say this is pretty decent, bit subpar overall. Not something to grab over another beer. 5.4% alcohol.

JoePeesie (925) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2011
a decent Pale Ale, the first time I tried it, I didn’t think much of it, but upon follow up sampling’s, it has started to grow on me. Not something I would actively seek out, but a solid easy drinking Pale Ale. Prevailing taste is of roasted malts and mellow hops.

TomTron (452) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Pours a hazy yellow, with a foamy white head that dissipated quick. Has some fruity notes in the nose some hops coming through. Tastes has some mild bitterness and some fruity sweetness, but also a bit watery in the end. Carbonation is average, and it ends up being rather bland overall. Definitely a session brew and one I would recommend to someone who is new to the style, but not one I would consider a good representation.

seymour (2045) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bought as part of the mix-pack, poured from bottle into standard pint glass. Nice copper color and lasting white foam. Distinctive English aroma hops. Malty-sweet taste with hints of bread and caramel, a little nutty. Bright fruity aftertaste from ale yeast. All-around, a nice interpretation of classic English Pale Ale.

annunz123 (957) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Some malt and sweetness in the aroma. More of the same in the flavor, with a little bit of hop finish. Nothing special, but still a good, easy-drinking beer.

2.9
HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 16, 2011
355ml bottle as part of a variety pack. Amber/orange colour. Smell wasn’t strong, taste was mostly malty with a good hops finish. Body is medium. Overall, a solid average ale with no standout strengths or weaknesses.
