Draft. Clear amber body with a frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, sweet caramel, floral hops, citrus, orange. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, soft carbonation. A comfortable, easy-to-drink beer. Sweeter than the average APA, but enough bitterness to balance that. Taste of orange and citrus, hint of biscuit and grapefruit.

Not bad drinkable pale ale. Caramel malts detract from some decent hop chraracter with light citrus and cut grass. decent.

Drat at Barleys Knoxville. Pours light orange with a very thin white head that leaves no lacing. A slight piney note on the nose. Pine on the tongue is fairly pronounced with some bitterness on the finish. Solid example of style.

Tasty pale ale. Nice body and strong flavors without crossing over into that IPA category, grassy, some citrus, gritty grainy, well attenuated, very drinkable.

Had on tap at Mellow Mushroom in Johnson City, TN.
Arrived with a big puffy head and a dark gold body. Great head retention and lacing.
Aroma of cereal grain and caramel along with a bit of citrus.
Lots of grain in the taste along with some toasted malt and caramel. Some lemony citrus underneath leading to a moderate bitterness. Really a great balance between malt and hops and a really easy drinking beer. Really worth seeking out.
