12oz can. Medium off-white head that mostly dissipates atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, light lime. Taste is medium sweet, orange, some bread/caramel, light lime. Light-medium body. Perfectly decent APA, in a generic sort of way.

Can at Volo, fresh batch. Lightcolour with some white head. Carbonation is right there.Very drinkable, an understated but enjoyable bitterness. Drying. Some citrus. Hits the style, but is not up to the best American pales.Neutal aroma.

Pours pale gold into a shaker. Fizzy white head recedes to nothing. Sweet cookie and caramel. Bread upfront turning to a bitter hop finish.

Can. Nice lacing on the pour. Straight forward malty, corny aroma with a cornbread backstop. Mild hopping lurks beneath. More prevalent in the flavor, the hops lend a nice contrast to a well developed, dry, bready maltiness. Not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good two-finger head. Leaves an initial ring of lace. Light amber color and crystal clear.
Slightly toasted malt aroma. Good balancing hop that makes for an overall attractive smell.
The only detraction I can fin is the below average body. Otherwise, this is a solid pale ale offering. Good pale malt flavors without any raw grain flavors. The hop is judicious, not overwhelming. The aftertaste is lasts without being a bitter bomb. A good day-by-day pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Clear golden-amber with 2 finger head that quickly disappears. Mild hop aroma. Taste is slightly sweet malt and mild hops. Although not appearing overly carbonated, it gives me almost a burning sensation on the tip of my tongue, which was not expected. Decent otherwise.
