Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a golden-amber color with a thick one finger white head. The head has a great level of retention, fading slowly over time to give a
Smell – The aroma is light overall. It consists of a light caramel and bready smell mixed with a small amount of citrus.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready taste with a small amount of caramel sweetness upfront. As the taste advances the bready taste remain with the sweetness fading some. While the sweetness lessens, the bitterness increases as some flavors of a citrus grapefruit hop flavor come to the taste. In the end a slightly bitter, but very smooth bready and hop flavor are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in terms of creaminess as well as in terms of carbonation. Both suit the style rather appropriately as they make for a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – A tasty and balanced pale ale. A good easy drinker.

Poured from a can with a packaged on date of 2/4/14; into a pint glass.
Appearance - dark gold; swirling carbonation that builds an ice cream sundae-like white head. Lacing is spot on!
Smell - sweet malts and a blend of grass, pine and citrus.
Taste - wonderfully balanced and complex flavors in true SN style!
Feel - about as easy drinking as you get for the style!
Overall - a bit lacking in the aroma department, but that is nitpicking a stud of a beer!
