bottle and draft; aroma is of carmel malt and lots of citrus hops. pours amber with very little head. taste is not what you would expect from an american pale ale. very one dimensional, sweet malt and citrus hops. almost like a toned down IPA rather than an american pale ale.

On tap @ Brixx Pizza, Greenville, SC. Decent enough pale ale. Easy drinker, but very restrained, nearly ordinary. Lawnmower beer.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 Deep amber pour with a nice white head that clings to the glass. Nice hoppy nose. Fairly heavy bodied for a pale ale. A nice crisp hop finish but not that much going on elsewhere. Good beer but when the same money gets you SNs Pale Ale... 7,4,6,3,12:3.2 Re-rate: Sampled at the 12th Annual Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Light golden color with a thin white head. Small bubbles settle to a cover. Biting hops and pale malt aroma. Citric and piney hops develop a great APA with a smooth body and a citrus hops finish.

Clear amber with no head. Smell is light and doughy dusty sweet. Thin, watery, almost tart flavor. Bland and not really that hoppy at all. Medium carbonation. Just no real flavor or smell. Quite ho hum for me.

bottle: pours super clear and clean honey colour lots of carbontion witha thick pithy white head.aroma is very faint almost non exsistant.very small wafts of caramel malt and light earthy hop with lemon. flavour is a light sugar malt and small amount of hops. not alot to it but it is very easy to drink withit lack of flavour.

jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Light golden color with different copper hinge. Minimal head. Hoppy with bits of sugar. Bits of lemon and citrus flavor. Not overly amazing. Pretty solid though. I had two of them on tap.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Awesome tasting brew. Exactly what I was hoping it would be. Medium bodied, amber/light brown colour with a soft sweet head. Well integrated hop flavor, smooth touch of floral and piney aromas. Citrusy at times with a long lingering hop finish.

This one smells less like 420 than the road trip. It does have lots of grassy hops along with lightly toasted malt and caramel. The appearance is almost amber gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma and quite drinkable. The palate is average. Overall its fine without being great.
