2.54/5  rDev -29.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

A: A billowy off white head sits atop a cadmium orange colored body. Visible carbonation is strong, fast and vibrant while the lacing sticks well in an encompassing band.

S: Lemony pale grains, lightly dry, not much else here. Weak, monotoned, disappointing.

T: The flavor was lemon, tastes a bit dirty and old hop and grain wise. Lemon grass, stale hop flowers, seems again old with a chemical lemon hint.

M: Mouthful was decent carbonation wise, medium body, bready feel, but leaves with a washy feel.

O: Overall not really crisp, not flavorful, very muddled, a homongenous mess with no definable aspect of quality or sharpness. Lacks in almost everything a good pale ale should be. a simple avoid.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a clear golden hue with a medium, white, 3-finger head that slowly dissipates down the side of the glass, leaving a nice trail and ending in a solid lace.

S: Malty aroma up front followed by some citrus notes and finishes slightly hoppy.

T: Equal mix of sweet and bitter. Malt and hops mix well together with some mild citrus notes.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent pale ale – nice combo of the malt and hops to be a well-balanced beer.
