Tap. Pours clear gold with average, fizzy white head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is biscuit and cereal malts, grassy and floral hops, lemon, and light spice notes. Flavor is a good balance of bready malts and grassy hops with some floral notes, light fruit esters, and faint herbs; dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. 3fourths (9351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2013
draft. hazed pale gold with a white head. straight shot American hop nose (citrus, grass, shallots, cheese rind, etc) with mild yeast presence giving the hop medley a bit of a blur, which is good. lean body but still has the typical Avery coarseness / huskiness to the malt. zippy, zesty American hop finish, high hop acids, medium-high bitterness, mostly dry. decent.

As "3 Point 5 Session Ale".
Clear golden color, white head. Sort of thin, malty taste. Medium thin mouthfeel, dry finish. High bitterness. Malty and hoppy taste.
Sampled on tap at the Avery Taproom on 9/28/2012. This American Pale Ale pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, fruity and hoppy. A medium to light bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. A touch of grain, some malts and some hops is a very nicely mixed. Definitely a good session ale. Very nice crisp and dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is a lingering slight bitterness. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - SEP 20, 2012
On draft at Avery. I applaud the low abv, but the formulation needs work, as the taste is unremarkable, thin, and it lacks the hop punch promised by the name. Least favorite of the many exceptional beers I enjoyed there.
