Amber color , with mid-sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and fruits. Taste of roasted caramel with bitter hoppy finish. Long bittersweet aftertaste. Nice bitter.

Fruity aroma with beautiful color. Smooth and easy to drink. However the taste is plain like wind.

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

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.

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 (1109) - 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. Camons (13492) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 14, 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.
