4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Good, but a bit watery for the ABV level. Flavor profile is very, very solid. Just needs to be a bit more rich. That said, very drinkable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy copper, bordering on amber with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, grass and light toasty notes. Taste is mild bitters with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied with clean quick finish. A very nice pale ale that keeps the hops upfront with a perfect amount of malts in the background.
