2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) rocky white head that dissipated quickly leaving enough residue behind for some fair lacing that spottily stuck to the glass.
The aroma was rather light of a straw malt and a grassy hop with just a strong citrus note and a mild hint of caramel.
The taste was mildly sweet and acidic with a ever so light hint of caramel in the beginning and became slightly bitter with a moderate dose of citrus (grapefruit) and had a decent hop finish. The flavor only lasted a very short while with hardly any hop aftertaste which was kind of disappointing.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a moderate carbonation.
Overall a light hoppy Pale Ale that would be great on a nice warm day when you felt like having more than just a couple.

Faint citrus nose and taste. Nice malt to back it up. Nice easy drinking summer type ale that is not overwhelming. Made for the masses.

Draft in Chatanooga, TN. Nice color, no head by the time I got it. Tasted pretty much like most APA’s I’ve tried. I enjoyed it and would get it again if I saw it again.

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Bjorn. Smells hoppy like a normal pale ale. Looks a bit orangey, with little head. Has avery smooth flavor for a pale ale, not a bad brew.
