Light yellow with a slight haze. The amarillo’s are showcased nicely bringing grassy citrus notes but the pilsner malt really shines almost the way it would in a lager. Light are refreshing, could use a little more carbonation to round out the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from trade with michaelinwa. Pours a cloudy pale yellow-orange color with a small head that quickly fades. Aroma is mix of pilsner malt with floral/citrus hops. Taste is decent. Mild sweetness and bitterness. Like a lemony and floral pilsner. Medium to thick body, gritty mouthfeel. Dry finish. Decent summer pale ale but might be hard to drink more than one or two because of how thick and gritty it is.

This beer tastes like they brewed up a lovely summer afternoon in the garden and stuck it in a bottle... All light and beautiful summery flavors and aromas. I love it!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a yellowish orange. Quite cloudy. There seems to be a nice layer of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Medium head, white. Good lacing. Pretty good retention, as well. The aroma is gentle and pleasant. Floral notes with some grapes and peaches. It smells of honeysuckle and light, sweet fruit. Pale malt. Sugary. The taste is moderately dry. It starts with pale malt sweetness and a good amount of that fruity, floral hop flavor. Considering that the aroma is relatively weak, there’s a surprising amount of hop flavor in the beer. Things dry out significantly in the finish. Bitterness is light. Mouthfeel is a bit fuller than expected. There’s some body to the pale malt and lush hoppiness. Good beer. I’d like more aroma, but it has a very nice flavor. Easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of Porcelainbomb (reddit trader). Pours a hazy golden color with sporadic head that fades quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is lemon zest, big sweet malts and bread, and finally some sharp grass. Flavor is an even mix of sweet malt and lemon bitterness followed by a big dose of bitter hops that diminishes into a clean aftertaste. Palate is quite heavy for this style as the beer actually sits and weighs on the tongue and with the minimal carbonation this feeling increases. Overall, this is a strange pale almost like a Pilsner/Pale hybrid based on the flavors that come through with the strong Pils bready malts mixing so much; also the bitterness is almost off-putting as it doesn’t do well with the sweetness and almost turns an off sour. I would like to try one fresh to compare but it’s barely above average for me.
