airrick2003 (872) - Louisiana, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Appearance: pours with a pretty big tan beige head, nice density, beer is a very clear amber to brown color, good head retainage Aroma: malty but very faint Taste: malt caramel, some hops on the finish but pretty tame, Palate: soft carbonation, light mouthfeel, tame bitter aftertaste Overall: not hoppy enough for a pale ale in my opinion, kind of simple and bland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alpha10 (723) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2013
2013/08/26 - Pours a burnt orange/amber colour with a frothy, off white head that reduces quickly, but leaves a surface film and a small lacing. Aroma is caramel, toasted malts, grapes and dough. Taste is slightly fruity up front with a toasted malt/caramel base and a sweet and slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is sticky with average carbonation and a drying finish. Good, but nothing overly special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maltman53 (468) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours light-amber, light hay aroma though smelling a little stale, lively carbonation and lasting lace, medium-bodied, light hop, muted malt, finishing crisp. Got to give it a low score as there is the wet cardboard taste and smell of a beer that has been oxidized.

krumbum (1106) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 22, 2013
A malt led scent that masked a light hop. A light amber appearance with a thin head. A slight fruity dry grape bitterness that fades to a malt hop backdrop. The flavors meld nicely and leave the palate refreshed with a light malt coating.

coreyc1221 (319) - Truckee, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Some bitter tang aroma but still blanketed down by the yeasty, distinctly sam smiths flavor. Darker golden or lighter amber color with short lived off-white head. Tastes creamy out of fucking no where. Creamy with a bit of citrus in the background. This is way better than I had expected. Will drink again.

Hkrivera (153) - Guaynabo, PUERTO RICO - JUL 11, 2013
Excellent pale ale! Crisp flavor that intensifies in your mouth. The dark color mesmerizes your senses since you are expecting a light appearance. Is the first beer I taste that carries a USDA grade (organic). Reminds me somehow a MILF from the university! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
