Tall boy can pours gold capped by a white head. Nose of crackers and oranges. Taste follows this theme wrapped in a light body. Could pound these all summer long a nary break a sweat.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 16oz ($2): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is slightly citrus with some biscuit. Taste is pretty light, but it is eminently drinkable. There is a modicum of hop flavor and more of the bready biscuit. Nice session beer.

16oz cans. Right from the can. The flavor is very light but blanced. Light floral hops and some grain stand out. Nice and crisp finish also. Perfect summer beer and at a great price. I love this stuff

Not a stand-out, by any means, until you realize you just bought a pint of it for two bucks. Sure, it is a mediocre pale that won’t be making any memories (well, that depends how many you have and who is drinking with you, I suppose). This is a lawnmower beer. A cookout beer. A getting-drunk-in-a-kayak beer. That said, it’s got a slightly citrusy, hoppy bite and a bit of a malt backbone to it. It finishes with a dry, grassy note and a bit of muted citrus. Best of all, at barely over 4% ABV, you’re not going to be waking up wondering if your pants are still in the same town.

Draught. This is a slightly different brew from the other pale Gansett offerings - still don’t get your hopes up.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz can. Sweet nose full of nothingness, nothing, Lewbowski. Clear yellow-golden body with a creamy, rocky and lacing bright white head. Taste is lightly sweet with light-medium bitterness, nice bready aftertaste but that’s undercut somewhat by metal and a tracer of stale grass. Seeming hard water in the crisp medium-full body, like the minerality and it pairs well with the relatively ruthless hops. Not the paragon of cleanliness, but this actually makes for a good pilsner-type Golden Ale (it’s currently classified here as an APA).

11/26/12. 16oz can. Golden pour with a small off-white head. Light tartness and biscuit aroma with floral hops. Again a bit of tartness in the flavor with flowers and citrus on top of biscuits. Eh.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear gold with a medium white head...lively and bright...nice lacing and retention. Aroma is grassy/spicy...a but skunky...mild straw...smells more like a pale lager. Flavor follows suit...mostly grassy/skunky with light pale malt backing. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry grassy finish...definitely drinks more like a pale lager or pilsener.

I wish this wasn’t classified a pale ale, because for a that it is not good. However, for a summer time ale, like a blonde, then yes, it it good. Lightly citrus hops in the nose, huge fluffy head, yellow gold color. Very light taste, a bit watery, not heavy at all.
