Very thin head with a coppery color. Aroma was of hops and malt. Compared to other pale ales it seems to be just average. This pale ale didn?t attack my senses like some of the ales that I have rated. This ale is readily available in stores selling beer in Virginia so if looking for a pale ale this is your drink. Others that I have enjoyed have been much better. It is great safe APA whenever out for dinner. After many of these, I am raising the scores compared to other APAs.
