Honestly not much going on here. Lemon copper pour. Transluscent. No head. Watery edges. Nose is sweet. Maple syrup and alittle bit of lemon. No hops present. First sip is astoundingly sweet for a beer of this style. None of the cotton candy type sweetness I’ve come to enjoy in English pale malts, just a cloying over the top sweetness. Slight, brassy hop bitterness at the end. Ehh
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates slowly to leave moderate lace. Aroma of deep toasted and nutty pale ale malts with a touch of caramel, and a mild earthy hop on the back end. Taste follows, definitely the old school English variety, clean and malty, but decently tasty. Meh. Andrew196 (2015) - Katy, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2017
Nice coloring, pours a rich amber. Ivory head. Aroma of toasted corn. Kinda nutty, medium carb. Plain and uninspiring. balloonbuffoon (667) - - MAR 9, 2017
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. sholbert (38) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 29, 2016
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. b3shine (9208) - Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2016
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. vandc01 (445) - North Branch, USA - MAY 28, 2016

Very meh pale ale - nothing special about it
It was a gift - wouldn’t seek this out
Not a huge fan. Lightly floral, earthy and nutty. Finishes lightly bitter, somewhat boring... Jrwhitney6 (510) - - APR 16, 2016
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.

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.
