Had during beer dinner at crossroads. this was paired with a pizzette with roasted red pepper sauce, goat cheese & prosciutto. It was a delicious pairing
The beer is a clear orangey amber color with a nice light head that leaves some gently lacing and doesn't disappear immediately. Pleasant and appetizing appearance.
Smell is of american hops. Citrus and piney notes, maybe a bit of apricot. It's not overwhelming hops, a bit restrained and I can already tell that this is going to be decently(not a flattering adverb) balanced pale ale.
Taste is very smooth and well balanced. Good bit of american hops present (gentle hops and fruity notes), but balanced by a good dose of malts (bready and toasted)
Drinkability is quite high. This is something that will go on to my kegerator during the summer (if I had one!) What I mean is that I would love to drink this all the time especially in the summer. Just something that I can drink and enjoy all day.
Serving type: on-tap
