2.45/5 rDev -38.8%
A: This poured a clear straw with quickly dissipating white head and chunky sediment.
S: It smelled like skunky lager yeast and faint citrus hops.
T: It tasted like watery citrus and pine hops, with some skunky later yeast. It had a somewhat dirty bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thin with lots of carbonation. Very bubbly body.
D: This was a poor brew. The scent and taste and body were all far below average. It didn't even look good. Not very easy to drink either, almost a drain pour.

Pours a golden yellow with two fingers of pillowy head that eventually falls. Lots of lacing.
Great aroma, light fruity hoppy smell
Taste starts out a little sweet and then the fruity hops come in, some bready malt and then a light bitter finish.
Medium bodied and moderate carbonation makes this real easy drinking.
Overall a great session-able pale ale that's not super bitter. The Nelson Sauvin hops give it a nice fruity bitterness. Glad this was recommended to me.
