Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Light to medium body. Good smooth kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Dry finish. Solid, satisfyingly hoppy pale ale. A little bit more bitter, less drinkable than most, though. Maybe a touch out of balance. Kind of a light spicy bitter edge to it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to pint at Moerlein Lager House. This was just released today. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells nice and hoppy; seems like Chinook and something else, but I can’t put my finger on which one. Mild sweetness and a touch of grain too. Tastes like it smells with a light, clean, and fairly dry mouthfeel. One of the better brews I’ve had from Moerlein.
