This is my first review of an Upland brew. Not the best pale ale I've ever had, but you could do much worse. Hazy yellow color with very little head, thin lacing. Definite bread and malt aromas. Bread came through the strongest in the taste and aroma. Soft mouthfeel, not a ton of carbonation here. Fresh tasting, pretty standard pale.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.
Have I really never had a Helios before? Wow. Well, this stuff pours a clear amber-gold topped by a short finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild cedar, flowers, very light pine resin, and an undercurrent of soft, nutty caramel. The taste brings in more of the same, that cedar sensation coming back in full force. Despite assurances of freshness, things just taste faded to some degree. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a decent pale ale at best, one that just kinda bored me and seemed somewhat lazy.
