Pours a golden color with amber hues. From the nose, you can immediately determine that this is not a pale ale with American hops. The smell is malty with a slight hint of floral British hops. The body has a caramel/toffee flavors from the crystal malts, and a bit of toasty undertones. The hops are slightly spicy, citrus and floral, which are a bit underwhelming due to the sweet caramel/toffee flavors in the body from the residual sugars. I believe this beer is more of an ESB than a pale ale, especially after getting the yeast on the tongue, but styles are blurred these days anyway. Good beer, not great, and has potential if IBUs are reconsidered.

Nice coloring, pours a rich amber. Ivory head. Aroma of toasted corn. Kinda nutty, medium carb. Plain and uninspiring.

Purchased a six-pack of 12floz bottles for $7. I’ve had this plenty of times before in bottles, tap, and cans (where they were contract brewed in Stevens Point, WI). Bottled on 01.23.2017. Consumed 03.09.2017. Poured into a pint glass. You don’t see this kind of beer by American brewers much anymore. It looks, smells, and tastes appropriate for the style. Although it is a bit slicker, thicker, and less mineral than traditional English pale ales. Light copper in color, butterscotch-ish aroma, some diacetyl flavor detected, and it’s medium bodied.

On draft at brewery. Pale copper with thin head. Mostly malt and sweet fruit on the nose with some good coming through on the palate. Very mellow, sessionable pale.

Draft to taster at Schlafly Bottleworks. Looks solid; a completely transparent pale burnt orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells malty with notes of biscuit up front and a touch of hops in the background. Tastes like it smells, but slightly hoppier, with some ale yeast as well. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied. Decent, but unmemorable.

Amber pour, white head. Aroma is sweet, beerish. Flavor is mild, grass, straw, yeast, grain. What I expected.

Not a huge fan. Lightly floral, earthy and nutty. Finishes lightly bitter, somewhat boring...

Had at Wash U reunion. Out of bottle, so couldn't see or smell. Decent beer for sunny, warm day - not overly hoppy or complex, but much better than the Bud alternatives all around St. Louis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz draft 12/9/15 (TGI Friday’s St. Louis)-Pours copper with a small head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is an all right brew.

Fairly inert. No real aroma, pours typical, pretty unremarkable. Medium effervescent mouthfeel , very bitter, but blank palate... No fruit... Nothing , just bitter and wet. Would I drink it in a pinch? Sure... Would I choose it iver bud light? Probably not.
