look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Dated March 22, consumed on Aug 16.

A - Brilliantly clear bright amber with a large, frothy head and medium carbonation. Lots of lacing in a clean glass.

S - Aroma hits from arm's length - citrus and slight pine. Super fresh aroma evan at almost five months old.

T - Initial slightly sweet caramel and moderate carbonation hit the palate. Mid is slightly bready, slightly toasty, slightly caramel. Finishing is bitterness and bone dryness.

M - Medium to light body with good carbonation.

O - The classic, quintessential american pale ale - the inventor of the style.
