UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 Pale yellow, hazy pour. Yeasty and fruIty. Apple, pear. LIght hoppy spice. Essentially an American version of a mIld. Bitterness Is ample for the light malt presence. Super drinkable pale ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a bottle at the late night tasting after the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours hazy, pale yellow with an average white head that recedes to average lace. The nose is restrained pale malt with a touch of citrus hops. The flavor is the same, very light with decent hops bitterness. The body is light with average carbonation and a short bitter hops finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Ryan and Jodiís with friends. Pour is clear golden with a big frothy head and great lacing. Biscuity, grassy, lemony, zesty, crackers, and lightly fruity aroma. Taste is biscuit, lemon peels, grass, dough, hay, straw, and light weed with light bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a smallish white head on it. Nose is only somewhat hoppy, but with some nice floral notes to it. Taste is dry and slightly bitter, yet feels light, crisp, and fresh. Really pleasant light drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Mostly hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Dots, ropes of lace. Good looking stuff. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice biscuity, caramel malty aroma. Some orange citrus zest. Moderate sweet, light bitter. Pretty respectable, smooth, sessionable, satisfyingly hoppy pale ale, with an interesting yeast character to it. Enjoyable stuff to try. Edit: whoa, 3%? Wow, here I was rating this thinking it was a 5% pale ale. Great hoppy session ale! Even more impressive now!

Bottle from Learyís. Pours cloudy pale golden with a white clingy head. Pale malt backbone with grassy hop bitterness. Not a favorite, but a lot of flavor for a 3.4% beer.

Aromas of Meyer lemons, crisp malt, daffodils, chamomiles, cake frosting, and lemongrass, mashed pears, and pine cones. Tastes the same with the addition of French noble hops, and LME. Another style...DESTROYED!!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle
Pours a pale golden with a nice light haze and a huge fluffy white head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is nicely fruity in a "fruity hop" kind of way, itís got a pleasantly sweet aroma but itís not sugary smelling. Itís a touch floral & very appetizing.
The flavor is well woven together, the bit of bitterness goes a long ways here & the hop flavor is enjoyable.... although Iíd prefer a touch more ooph in that department. The maltiness is bright with some light toasty characteristics.
The big surprise is that for as low boost as it is, it comes across as a pretty full bodied beer, or at least itís not especially thin in any way.
