$1.80 bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville.
Pours amber - no head. Smells slightly sweet-sticky. Tastes of copper and pepper. Bland. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 1, 2012
12oz bottle. Aroma of caramel malts and floral and citrusy hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A standard pale ale. cheap (6006) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Nice moustache. Strong old winey palate. Slight fruit aroma. Feels like much more than 4.8% and I usually like lower alky beers. Fairly good co2 sizzle. Ropey. Metallic hints. Bitterness sets in as session continues. Takes a few to get used to. Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Malty caramel aroma nice clear amber color. But taste comes out bitter and bland. This isn't a terrible ale but lags after such a nice aroma

Slightly hazy amber beer. Toffee on the nose. Light crispy palate. Toffee malt, crisp. Just a little hop fruit and bitterness coming through before the dry finish. Not bad.
Quite a nice looking beer, quite handsome.
Burnished orange in color or copper, lots of tan foamy head and perfectly carb’d.
Plenty of butterscotch aroma here. Rather high for a pale ale. Fighting through I can smell desent sweet malts and some hops.
The diacetyl that was so prevalent in the nose isn’t that pronounced on the palette. There is a good strong malt bill here. Sweet it is yes.
Hops have a bite but are very lean, too lean for an APA. There is a light biscuit finish.
Medium mouthfeel and sticky and a slight bitter finish.
Okay so is this an American pale or English.
The envelope please...

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright amber color with a medium sized foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was buttery with notes of biscuit and faint fruity hops. The flavor was butter, fruity hops and biscuit. Long butter and fruit finish. Medium body. Eh. Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - APR 25, 2012
Pretty good. The nose is a biscuity malt balanced with light floral hoppiness. The beer is a copper color with a small cream head. The taste is malty caramel, biscuit, and toast but balanced with good cleean hops perhaps a touch of diacetyl. Smooth and refreshing medium bodied. Good. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2012
Pours clear light orange ..aroma is caramel hop..taste is fruit and grass...very light tasting...soso Jndubbs (120) - Austin, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2012
Smoother than expected. Not too hoppy. Lighter amber color. As far as Pale Ale’s go, given my inclination towards them, decent.
