Pours into a nonic a clear medium golden with a thinner white head atop.Some nice floral hop notes in the nose with a bit of toasted grain and biscuit malt,light but pleasant.Citrusy hops with a bit of tangerine at the onset of the palate with sweet biscuit malts a smack of toasted grain in the finish.I don't think this beer is bad at all it's light and somewhat refreshing on a sweaty ass humid day like today.

A: A lighter shade of yellow. Very clear. Forms a moderate sized, fluffy white head, but there is little retention as it quickly falls to a thin surface coating. Some light lacing.

S: Aroma is light. A blend of pale malts, biscuit, light citrus notes, and just a bit of pine.

T: Taste is also very light. Almost lager-like with a hint of that green-apple flavor I come to associate with lagers. Otherwise crisp pale malts, white bread, and some grassy-herbal hops on the back end.

M: Light body. Heavier carbonation. Crisp. Mild bitterness.

O: Well, if I can say one thing about this beer, it is quite drinkable. That said, this is not a bad beer. It's just not a very exciting one. It's an ever-so-slightly better than average pale ale in a market flooded with much-better-than-average pale ales, resulting in a beer that kind of falls flat.
