Taster on tap at the brewpub. Clear golden color. Thin off-white head. Loose bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Hoppier than typical for a pale, pretty satisfying. Pine, citrus, good clean biscuity malt bill. Not bad, better than expected.
