Smell: Some bread notes, but mostly piney and earthy tones
Taste: Very piney and floral initial taste, solid mouthfeel that coats your tongue in malt, very smooth and refreshing, great session brew
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied for a pale

A: Pours a clear golden with a dense white head. Very lice lacing and retention.
S: This beer smells of balance. Perfect balance of floral citrus hops, light caramel and very light grainy sweet malt. A wee bit of pilsner like aroma is present. Neither the hops nor malt take over the aroma.
T: Starts with a beautiful floral Citrusy, grapefruit and mild pine flavor followed by a lemony citrus in the mid palate. Bitterness is present but subdued and balanced to the sweet malt flavor. The light lemon character and hop flavor persists in a semi dry finish. Quite a complex hop flavor going on here.
M:Medium body with a velvety texture. moderate carbonation. Smooth.
O: This is one of the best overall pale ales I've ever had. Balance is the word here. It's a complex variety of flavors that each have their own identity and distinct flavors are identifiable through the finish. A very smooth and easy drinking beer.
Serving type: bottle
