Pours pale, light and refreshing with a hint of bitters and hops. The beer doesn't leave any hear or lacing. A great beer for a sunny day.

I got this from Secret Santa. Thanks! The pour is hazy gold with a lasting head. Smells of lemon, earth, soap, and a fruity presence that kind of resembles strawberry. This is light and refreshing with a nice dry bitterness in the finish. There’s a wheat character to flavor that has me thinking of a hoppy American wheat beer. Earth, lightly toasted grain, and citrus noted. Clean. This would be a nice choice during the hot summer months.

Sample tasted at the Brewery The Pale Ale poured a clear gold color with a white head and lacing. Aroma of light citrus. The taste of citrus bitterenss covered your tongue. The light to medium body had average carbonation. The finish ended with a pleasant dryness. An easy drinking ale with a crisp taste that will have you coming back.

Pours a bright orange-ish, brown-ish golden color. A bit cloudy. Small white head. Nice, fresh aroma. It’s mild but good. Light tropical fruit, floral and bright citrus hop notes. Gentle sugary malt in the background. Taste is similar. Mild but bright hoppiness with some simple malt in the background. Light mouthfeel. Easy to drink. It’s just a nice, drinkable APA. With more hop aroma, it would stand out and make me want more. As is, it’s a nice enough beer, rather refreshing, but I wouldn’t seek it out. Still, no real complaints.

Decent beer that has a nice citrus taste. Lacks hops and there is a little to strong caramel taste initially. Good after taste.

Keg @ Beer Run. Medium gold small head. The nose is pissy lemon sherbet, pale malt, white grape. Taste is fairly faint chalky grape jellies, angel food cake. Light husky grain. Light body, sort of under-carbed. Overall, pedestrian.

Draft at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a pretty much clear, with a touch of haze to it, orange color with a small white head. Aroma was light citrus notes, some earthy hops, light malts. Flavor was some light citrus notes, touch of very light malts. Pretty session-able.
