12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler

A- Honey yellow, clear. White head diminishes rather quickly.

S- A bit of a sweet caramel with some hop presence. Some earth pine notes and a dash of lemon.

T- Balanced biscuity malt. The earth and pine come out in the flavor. A bit spicy.

M- Rather clean. The finish is semi-dry. A tad spicy and piney.

O- Decent, solid pale ale. Nothing remarkable, however.

A big thanks to the previous reviewer, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, a bit of mild citrus. Taste is kind of light, some hops, a touch of citrus, just a bitr on the bland side. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a sessionable beer, but just seemed to be lacking a bit.
