Fresh bomber. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden amber color with a thick, fluffy head of eggshell to beige foam. Dense, solid walls of lacing coat the glass almost entirely. The nose is very bready, showing a clean, lightly toasted, dry cereal grain base that is balanced with a light dusting of grasses and mild citrus. Flavors largely follow suit, again coming across as balanced and mostly dry. Lightly peppery, grassy green notes cut through the dry, wheaty cereal and toasted white bread elements. Hints of pithy citrus lend further drying, bittering character. The body is moderate in both stature and carbonation, drinking easy because the heft seems more from well-attenuated and unfiltered grain malt than from laboring residual sugars. Good brew. Nothing fancy, just solid and balanced. Boring perhaps, but free of any off-putting qualities.

The aroma does not make one think that anything special is coming. Itís got grassy hops and a dull clean maltiness. The appearance is deep gold with a small head. The taste makes up for a lack of aroma with a big sweet malt punch to balance a robust hop quality. The palate is thick and smooth. Overall a very good beer!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at CBBC, pours cloudy amber. Unexpected, but very nice bitterness that pushes through a solid malt base for a pale. Medium bodied with medium bitterness, on top of a light carbonation with a nice finish with a touch of bitterness to wrap it up. Overall another good drinkable beer for the Florida heat.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ FBGBF í010. Pours hazy deep gold with copper core and off white head to go along with a little bit of spotty lacing. The aroma is faint with just a sense of malts and little else gong on. The taste is kind of refreshing with citrus hops tartness moving into sugary maltiness. Iím not sure what this is but Iím not sure itís a pale ale.
