Time to review a classic! Poured into a beer mug.
A: Pours a light golden color, with a very sexy, fluffy white head.
S: Has a subtle floral smell paired alongside some understated malt notes. Faint hints of citrus are detectable, as well.
T: Starts with a little bit of biscuity malt before opening with a solid bite of NW hops. Has a floral, piney character that merely tingle your taste buds, rather than attack it with scissors. Not my favorite tasting beer, but it still works perfectly.
M: Good carbonation with a proper feel on the palate. Dry finish makes it a great pairing with spicy/zesty/bitter food.
O: It's a craft beer classic for a reason, people. All the refreshment you'd expect from a pale lager, but far more satisfying to drink. Insane drinkability, well priced, very easy to find, and a fantastic gateway beer for newbs. What's not to like?

12 oz bottle into a tumbler. I really need to work on my glassware situation, but I feel like any glass is better than none. Last one from a 6 pack, enjoyed this beer quite a bit. It's a style I love, and pretty typical for it.
Pours a slightly hazy light amber/dark blonde with less than one finger of creamy off white head. Lacing isn't anything to write home about.
Sniffs Good. Subtle and hoppy, probably cascade. Mouthfeel is pretty light, and drinks smoothly. Would be a good beer in the summer, and is great right now late in the winter too. Tastes well balanced with plenty of hops. If you don't like hops this one is pretty approachable. (People should just drink what they like though.)
