look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Served on-tap into a weizen glass.
A: Hazy pale yellow in appearance. Decent head and retention.
S: A lot of sweet citrus and tropical fruit. Smells over the top sweet to me.
T: Sweet with big grainy flavor. Mild hop taste is in there, but mostly grains.
M: Light beer feel.
D: Easy to drink. Seems like a good sumertime drinker to me.
I would seriously compare this more to an American style wheat beer. From the presentation in the weizen glass to the sweet, grainy taste, this beer is like 312's better looking brother. Not a fan of 312, but this one was better than that.
Serving type: on-tap

A- Came to me a brilliant and slightly hazy gold in color. Good touches of orange and copper in the color of the body with a good, thick head of about 2 fingers that retained all day. Lacing was also very good for the plastic cup it came in.
S- Hoppy and citrusy right up front, but not overly so. Good notes of both pine and citrus, but a somewhat orange-like scent was most noticeable. Nothing over the top as far as bitterness and hop character, but enough to satidfy my hop craving of the moment.
T- Starts off with a mild and citrusy hop punch that quickly introduces a malt backbone. Balance is struck with a mild hop presence throughout the entire drink and the malt just lying low providing enough sweetness to let the hops roll.
M- Light to medium weight across the palate with good carbonation and great drinkability. This is a sessionable pale.
Overall, this beer is solid and deserves respect. Frankly, this should have been introduced nationally instead of 312 Urban Pale.
