Liht honey-colored with very ight lacing. Citrus and grass on the nose. Balanced, light hops on the palate; grapefruit dominates the flavor and the finish is loooong. A very nice Pale Ale

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent pale ale. Lemony. Light malt. Piny hops. Thirst-quenching and drinkable, but nothing over the top for me.

Tap at Wedge. Pours a hazy copper with a thin lasting head. Aroma is toasty, biscuit malts with lemon and lemonzest hops, a bit soapy. Flavor is cracker, light citrus hops, more lemon hints and toast- a bit thin- ok.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at atlanta cask ale festival and man are those some fresh ass hops. Huge grassy aroma and earthy grassy flavor is like chewing on wet cut greenery. All the way in the background is a little citrus aroma and a tinge of a grapefruit bitterness but all of that is drowned out by the fresh hopping cask conditioned aspects of this baby.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a slightly hazy copper with a small but lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of fresh sweet malt,citrus hops, and a hint of caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness and nice crisp finish. They packed in a whole bunch of flavor into a small beer. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Atlanta Cask Ale Tasting.
Pours a clear golden amber with a small bubbly head.
The aroma is dominated by the floral fry hops up front which carry the smell throughout with some caramel malts int he background.
The hops are again prevalent in the taste up front with some lemon grass and hints of pine. The malts are more bready that anything and form the backbone of this one before the hops come back and leave a dry bitterness in the finish.
The mouthfeel is slick and fairly light with little carbonation.
This was a very drinkable pale ale that represents a more traditional cask ale vs. some of the other big offerings at the ACAT.
