2.33/5  rDev -25.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

I'd seen this beer around a few time and noticed that it was organic. However, I missed the fact that this was an Anheiser Busch product. In any case, this beer pours a copper color with a large, fluffy off-white head that quickly recedes into oblivion. Lacing? Nope. Head retention? Nada. There's a bit of sweet malt aroma as well as some fruitiness as the beer comes to room temperature. Actually the aroma reminds me more of a lager than anything. Delicate malt flavors come through in the taste as well as some graininess and a mild hop bitterness. Very clean, almost too clean... if I didn't read "pale ale" on the label, I'd guess that this was a lager... someone else mentioned Vienna lager, and I tend to agree. Mouthfeel is very light, much lighter than I'm used to for both American and English pale ales. This beer is very drinkable... probably a decent lawnmower beer. Overall not bad, but not at all what I'd expect for a pale ale. This kind of reminds me of the lightest offerings at most brewpubs... the pale beer for people who don't typically like the more expiramental stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Clear medium honey, good, head, leaves quick to ring. Some spotty lace.

S - Ghost of hops, mostly sour and light and unappealing.

T - Light malt followed by light hops. Good enough.

M - Balance fair. Good carbonation.

D - Ok, not much here. Yet would be nice served cold on a hot day.
