    Captures the soul of beer. It has a fresh maltiness that reminds you that good beer is a product of the soil. Beautiful balance of malt and fresh hops.

    Not a bad beer at all. Tried it over the weekend and it is a little bitter but good beer. Would recommend to someone who is wanting a change up and to try new

    Cetainly not a candidate for a first choice, but on the whole a steady ale with a nice, but not great color and aroma. Probably a solid candidate to blend with Guinness Stout if nothing else. Solid ale and I would say to if you're buying.

    Fine consistent flavor. As good a mass produced product as you are bound to find. Must admit that I am more likely to drink this mixed with Guiness in that mythic combination, a black

    This is a great pale ale. I typically can't stand pale ale.

    Color is golden and pours with no head.

    The taste is hard to place like a dark beer but it is smooth.

    This is a nice very drinkable ale. Availability is good. It is smooth and hoppy. I have found it to be consistent. Goes well cold or at room temp in a mug. I like this one a little more on the cool side though.
