3.4/5 rDev -3.4%
A pint at Old Chicago in Southgate, Michigan.
This beer appears a clear pale golden colour, with one finger of soapy white head, which leaves some streaky lace as it duly wisps away. It smells of faint grainy malt, and floral, leafy hops. The taste doesn't waver much, with some edgy cereal grain, and bitter grassy, earthy hops. The carbonation is moderate, the body light, but not thin, and fairly smooth. It finishes crisp, and fairly clean, a somewhat metallic hoppiness lingering.
Nothing fancy, just an adequate accompaniment to pseudo-deepdish pizza and Detroit Lions eyeballin'.

Bottle to Pint
Thanks to my co-worker Kathleen for this one
App- A fairly sparkly looking orange with some good bubble activity. I used a friends pint glass, so not sure if right glass or not, but best I had. Small 1/2" head that fell to nothing. A couple dots of cling.
Smell- A light bit of an small malty orange. A little bit of a spice note and maybe just a touch of bitter. A light IPA or a small pale ale really.
Taste- This was pretty tasty. I liked it better than the Detroit brewing one. Had more pop and flavor vs just a small malt backbone with a little citrus. Nice balance and a good fast drinker. An easy thirst quencher.
Mouth- A little bit of a lighter medium body with a fairly light medium carbonation. A good amount of malt on the back with a touch of citrus and a bit grainular.
Drink- Better than the 1st Altbier of the night, but wasnt anything wowing. Solid offering and quaffable.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a rich golden amber with a plain 1 finger white head. head lasted ~five minutes before leaving a few lacings on the glass. Aroma was slighty sweet and fruity, but also had notes of acid and yeast. Taste started out fruity with a hint of citrus, before shifting to a yeasty hop flavor. A slightly sour and yeasty flavor lingered in the mouth after sipping. Felt ok, maybe a bit overly bubbly. Overall not bad, but came across a bit strange towards the end of each sip.

Nice pour with a deep straw color and foamy cap that sticks heavily to walls of the glass.The smell which is most prominent is the citrus aroma with a slightly grassy note or two. Taste is a bit above average with a slightly malty taste and some grape-fruity citrus bite to it. Mouthfeel is a medium feel with a good carbonation level to it. Nice lacing down sides of glass. Like it alot but not top of the style very decent beer.

A: Clear gold color, big frothy head. Nice lacing.
S: Orange, citrus, sweet, tart - lemon meringue. Smells like dessert.
T: bitter, lemon, orange, grapefruit.
M: Lots of bubbly carbonation that really helps to bring the flavors out.
O: This is really an exceptional pale ale. I'm especially a fan of the subtle, delicious nose, which really adds a lot to the complexity of the flavor.
