2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from drabmuh. Thanks Matt!
The beer is completely transparent and yellow in color, with a finger of white head that displays lasting retention and leaves ample lacing on the glass (not a run-on sentence, though it feels that way). Steady effervescence emanates from the depths of the pint glass. After fifteen minutes, no let up. Impressive.
The aroma is great, especially considering the beer is so low in alcohol. Light fruits and the smell of summer. Mmm...
The flavor is delicious. I could throw back several of these in a session. Perfectly balanced and teeming with flavor, this is certainly a top notch example of the style. I definitely want more of this. Recommended.

16oz can. Looks light. Aroma of caramel and pale malts plus a good amount of floral and light citrus hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A good summer ale.
