A drinkable pale ale. Nothing too special, but very well crafted. Dark gold in color, heavy carbonation, and well balanced. Pleasant hoppy goodness in the nose.
Sampled at LA Craft Beer Fest 2009.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2009 The beer poured a yellow color with a white head. The aroma contains some grassy notes and lemons. This one is a real lemon bomb fo sho. Some malt presence going on and the finish is slightly sour. Overall whatever basically.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lighter amber color with a white head. Aroma is of wheat, light citrus, and floral hops. Slight bitterness at the front of this beer with the wheat and floral hops coming out with it. Not great but not as bad as most people are saying it is.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the ’09 Fish Fry. Pours a cloudy yellow with white head. The aroma is oregano, lemon, and olive oil. The flavor is olive, spice, some sweetish malt, and a peppery note. Slight bitterness to the finish. It needs to be much cleaner. It’s kind of strange as it is.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 Bottle. Pours slight hazy gold with fluffy, soapy white head. Aroma has light, fruity and light citrus esters. Flavor has a nice subtle malt back bone and light fruity esters popping out with just a touch of earth in the finish and faint hints of bitterness. Light mouthfeel and high carbonation. Overall, solid, easy drinker! I enjoyed

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle in a gift mix pack. Not too exciting but good for the style. One hell of a pale "pale ale" - golden-yellow in color with a one-finger white head. Very mild aroma of grain, malt, and slight hops. Flavor is grain and pale malt, not complex but well-made and refreshing. Palate is great for the style - really light and smooth. Carbonation medium. Pretty average beer overall, but on a hot day it hits the spot.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow, big foamy white head. Nice but faint hoppy aroma. fairly sweet at first, and a crisp mildly bitter finish. Not a whole lot to say about this one...
