3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can.
The best looking pale ale that I have ever enjoyed. A wonderful orange/copper color with a wonderful creamy, foamy head.
I noted some caramel and light fruitiness, some grapefruit -piney hoppyness. The Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light fruitiness, Not quite as good as Dale’s Pale Ale, but just a half a step behind. I could drink this by the case.
12 oz can. Faint scents of hops and leather a little dusty. Pours an cloudy orange with a big, off-white, persistent head. Lots of lacing. Very malty flavors with yeast and leather. Well balanced, fizzy mouthfeel. Medium sour finish. Pretty good. Bill Becker (2050) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 18, 2017
From Dec 2006
Poured from 12oz can a clear medium gold witha large billowy head of foam. After a few minutes, it collapsed leaving "clouds" of foam mainly in the center of the glass and lots of nice lacing.
The smell is a light, but nice mix of bitter hops and sweet malt.
The taste is citrusy with notes mostly of lemon up front with a good side note of malt making for a bittersweet taste. The finish definitely leaves the malt behind as the bitterness dominates and for a nice dryness that is very crisp. Good APA!
Bottom line: Another very solid example of the style packaged in cans and should please most APA fans. Very drinkable!
Thanks to Nutbrown for this sample! rumore (941) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 15, 2017
33cl can from AbeerVinum, Rimini, Italy. Pours an orange amber with medium white foam. Aroma is caramel, resinous... very nice. Body is average, maybe even a little light. Taste is equally nice, with a good bitterness supported by a fair sweetness. Finish is not particularly long, though it shows some additional persistent bitterness.

Strange caramelly nose. Palate was minerally and unbalanced. Modest bitterness. Not my thing meccahh69lol (366) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2017
We bought this one because it had a sort of pretty can and I thought we hadn’t rated a beer from Pennsylvania yet (we had). Pours a cloudy orange color and smells funky; honestly I was expecting the can to be skunked after the first whiff. It kind of tastes like someone brewed chai tea in a Budweiser. Fine and drinkable but not the most complex or interesting of its kind. Good for sipping after a nice walk and pho with your booboo, and for getting ready for some snuggles.

Drank from the can before going through airport security. Nice malty flavor with some earthy citrus notes. Good body, crisp finish. ciocanelu (3190) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 17, 2016
Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet malt, orange, honey, biscuits and some earthy hops on the back end. Taste starts with a very classic, biscuity malt profile, similar to a helles. Some floral hop notes in the middle and the finish is a really nice combination of malt and citrusy hops. Medium to light bodied with crisp carbonation. Overall it’s a quite nice, easy drinking pale ale but nothing to go crazy for. andrepintado (3788) - Porto, PORTUGAL - AUG 10, 2016
