Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A real nice looking brew here. Crystal clear text book amber with maybe a little bit of copper red color to the body. A little bit of small rising carbonation, and a fluffy light looking off white head that makes barely three fingers but settles to a thing pinhead bubbly looking puck.
The bouquet is decent. Small biscuity malts, a little bit of toasty grains, and a nice light brown sugar sweetness are the most dominant flavors on the nose. Not much of a noticeable hop angle, but still fairly solid.
A real interesting palate. Hop angle meets somewhere between herbal and pine with a good strength that isn't off putting. Palate fills with a good amount of toasty grains, and a mild almost caramel like sweetness.
Overall pretty tasty, but not really gravitating towards it highly, but it's a memorable decent pale ale for sure.
