look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark orangish gold with a quarter of an inch of soft, white head that is dense and has great retention. There are very noticeable carbonation bubbles rising to the top. The nose has a faint, bready maltiness to it. The taste is bready and malty with some faint grassy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth with a decent amount of carbonation.

This is a very drinkable APA, but it's reminds me of a maltier pilsner considering it's hop profile. It's enjoyable and sessionable, but I'll probably pass in the future.

Light copper color and a smooth and rich beige head. Gotta say, these NCB beers were, across the board very nice looking.
Light aromas of pine and strawberries.
Very mild flavors. Hard to pick much out at all
Good texture and polish but just a touch washed out.
Pairing: King salmon with tomatillo cream

A: nice straw color with frothy thin white head

S: smells of grain and some sweet citrus, little malt in the background

T/M: First notice is the light malt flavor that is then quickly accompanied by a decent amount of sweet hops in the theme of mandarines with a little lemon juice drizzled on top for that tart aftertaste. Cleans up at the end with a nice not so bitter honey taste. medium-light body with medium carbonation.

D: nice pale ale that I could sit back with and enjoy a sixer of over the weekend.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a nice golden color slightly cloudy and poured a most impressive big white head. The smell was malty and sweet. The taste was a bit bitter in the finish but not bad. Taste was a little watery but still a refreshing beer. I would buy this beer again. Bet would be great on tap.

This poured a slightly hazy, light honey color with white head. It had a weak scent of orange hops and honey wheat mixed with cultured malt. It tasted very mild and sweet, like watered-down honey. It was oily with moderate carbonation and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall this was a very clean and mellow beer; not bad.
