3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate roasted for the malt, light pine and mustiness for the hops and yeast, with wood and paper. Head is average size, fizzy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear medium amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation and a lightly astringent and dry finish. This American Pale Ale is very easy drinking and pretty standard for the style.

Hazy, orange color. Bready / malty aroma with some melon / pineapple hops aroma. Biscuit / malt taste with moderate hop bitterness. Classified as an IPA on BA, but a Pale Ale here on RB. I agree with American Pale Ale. Nice and drinkable, but not on my favorites list.
