It has a clear copper color without a head on the beer. The smell is citrus. The taste of this full body has a sweet carbonated citrus with a dry hop finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Closing out, Alchemy Ale is great and made very well. They put some thought behind this beer. There is a nice balance between the hops and the malt. It is pretty drinkable beer and it will get you in trouble if you are not paying attention. This is a great beer however, I am pretty disappointed that they dropped and stop making their Drifted Pale Ale. I will be honest. I was not a fan of this beer right away but it grew on me. I am not saying this beer made me forget the Drifted Pale Ale and it will not. I recommend you trying this beer. Go get some! Drink i! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
