Brown bomber with pry-off cap poured in a nonic pint glass.

Hazy, golden yellow in colour. White head is 1/2 inch on the pour and recedes to a thin cap with lots of lacing down the sides.

Aroma is mainly citrus (lemony) and herbal.

Flavour is pretty much the same as the aroma. Citrus, herbal, lemony with hints of malt.

Easy drinking and goes down smooth. Not overly bitter or hoppy. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated.

A really nice pale ale. Not overly complicated but well balanced and smooth. Drinkability is off the scale.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of orange zest, lemon zest, juniper berry, floral, grass, honey, biscuit, cracker, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and juniper berry notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon zest, juniper berry, floral, grass, honey, biscuit, cracker, light pine, and floral earthiness. Slight floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, juniper berry, floral, grass, honey, cracker, biscuit, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of hop, malt, and juniper berry flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and slightly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale ale. Good balance of hop, malt, and juniper berry flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
