Pours clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has slightly sweet straw. Flavor follows suit...some slightly earthy bitterness but this is pretty malty. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/straw. Meh.

Great pale ale that stays light and crisp and doesn’t linger around too long.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Pours clear golden with very excited but sparse carbonation and a medium sudsy off-white head. Nose is honestly more malt-present , touch of lemony citrus. Taste clean and clear, medium bitterness and very much like a Pils, snappy in its crispness, but too sweet and slightly metallic, too mineral-heavy and the chalky aspect is very off-putting. Hops themselves aren’t stale, really, but dank in the direction of spoiled. Medium-full body and just not enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright amber/gold appearance with a large white head and very good lacing. Earthy, whole grain aroma dotted with herbal hops. Orchard-like flavors turn more bitter with a mild ciderish note in the aftertaste. Crisp, medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lasting finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA review on 2-17-13-
Poured from bomber into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden straw color with a two finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave only a very light level of lacing.
Smell- The aroma is light overall with some toasted malt and a grainy smell. Mixed with these are some lighter notes of a citrus hop nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a more dry bready flavor up front. There is light citrus hop very near the start which grows stronger at the middle only to fade more toward the end. While the citrus hop flavor diminished from the middle to the end, herbal and grassy hop flavors grow stronger on the tongue. In the end a crisp and lightly bittered grassy/herbal flavor are left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to light side with a carbonation level that is medium to slightly above medium. The mouthfeel couple with the flavors of the brew create a rather crisp and easy drinking beer.
Overall - Nothing all that extraordinary here. Overall it is a decent APA with a more crisp taste and feel.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft - Right balance of hops that is not overpowering yet you can still taste the bitterness from the hops. Not much sweetness, very little malt to balance out the hops. Lots of citrus flavor on this one. Kinda has a “water” taste to it.
