Pours a orange/amber/tan color, the hues slightly remind me of the look of a marzen. The head is about 3/4 of an inch an has pretty good retention. Carbonation is visible. This is truly a visually appealing beer. Smell is of toffee, grainy malts, and citrus hops. The taste emphasizes the malts, but it still doesn't seem disproportionally flavored to me. The taste starts with a caramel sweetness them gets a mottled more toasty. A slight bitterness is imparted by the citric hops. Mouthfeel is good, feels satisfyingly thick, often other pale ales feel a little weak in this dept to me. I really enjoyed this, I'd love to get my hands on more of it to drink as an everyday sort of beer.
