This pale ale is in the moderate range for the style, just a bit darker than medium yellow. A good-sized clean white head is fluffy and has some density, so it holds up well. After a time, what it's settled to is a hefty foam that leaves steady, even, and thick patches of lacing in plenty on the sides of the glass.
Overall, this beer is fairly unambitious; as a result, it's also uninteresting. It's pretty standard, middle-of-the-road stuff. A light dose of floral hops, some caramel malts, and a note of grains underneath are the essence of it, with a mildly herbal note soaking into the finish. It's certainly easy drinking.
There's a good smoothness that's almost creamy in a body on the light side of medium. Crispness is there, but it needs a little more to keep it up the entire session.
