Poured by Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, NY.

A: Golden and light without much character. Nice head and lacing with light carbonation.

S: Hoppy nose with citrus and light malts on top of an almost wheat base.

T: Reminiscent of a wheat. Nice and citrusy with a lot of soft tinges. Lacking of any major flavors but not a bad drinking beer. Nice and smooth.

M: Clean and crisp with hoppy bitterness.

O: Not terrible, fairly forgettable midrange pale.

Serving type: on-tap

A clear and deep coppery color with a translucency due only to the color, this beer struggles to maintain a wispy head that sinks down to foam with strong edging and achieves decent spotting.
As similar as can be in aroma and flavor, this pale ale is moderately hoppy with a focus on earth, leaf and mineral notes that make me wonder if it isn't an English version. A hint of estery sweetness comes up at the front and gives way to the bitterness, while a bit more flora comes out from middle to end.
It's more prickly than crisp and bitingly so. Its light-medium body holds a certain mineral edge to it.

3.71/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, citrus, honey and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty malt character up front. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel, honey and citrus. The hops presence is strong but not over-powering and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style even though it seems to lean more toward the English Pale Ale style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

When in Syracuse, buy a like named beer!

Pours clear gold with a one finger white head that dropped to a cover but left some lace.

Floral hop nose with a slight soapy presence...no it wasn't the glassware.

Taste was similar with some floral hops up front, slight bitterness through the middle and a clean, somewhat dry finish.

Mouthfeel was on the thin side with a buttery presence. Mellow carbonation was a bit prickly on the tongue.

Nice session brew at 5%
