12-oz bottle into nonic pub glass

A - 2 fingers off-white foam over a cloudy body of golden amber

S - lemony citrus, slight scent of grain; not much going on here

T - lemon, pepper, light bready taste from the malt, touch of pine, subtle floral notes; hops are running this show, dry finish

M - thick medium body with high carbonation

O - On the dry and bitter side, otherwise a pretty average pale.
