3.66/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is copper, head presents with large sized bubbles and deep, then dissipates to a top and some lacing on the glass.

Smell is malt forward, some caramel and toast are noticeable; hops are citrusy and earthy.

Taste is also malt forward, but not sweet, clean feremented flavors, nice toast and caramel presence with the hop flavors providing some citrus notes.

Mouthfeel is a biting, sharp and crisp on the tongue; not sure if this carbonation based or drying from the fermentation.

Overall, a very good pale ale but a bit too crisp and sharp in the mouthfeel for my preference.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- poured out of a can, this beer is clear and bright copper coloured. Not much lacing.

Smell- pine, hops are present, maybe a little bitter citrus smell in there as well

Taste- It starts out with a mix of bread/grain flavor with the pine present and finishes with a nice smooth bitterness. Back end has an easy hops aftertaste, maybe a little bit of a pear and citrus flavoring that goes along with the hops.

Mouthfeel- medium bodied, smooth and silky almost to the tounge, slightly dry but not too strong dryness.

Overall- This is a solid pale ale. Nothing crazy, but this beer leasves you satisfied when you put your drink down, thinking to yourself, "yes, this is what a good pale ale should be." It doesnt make you want to jump for joy and tell all your friends about how amazing this beer is, but it is a nice pale ale. I coule sit down at a bar and knock back a couple pints leaving the bar satisfied.

Can > Pint Glass

A - Clear gold with a finger of white fizzy head, little lacing.
S - Aroma is very muted, mild bread malt, hints of citrus and grass
T - Pine and citrus hops to some cracker and bread malt. Basic but good.
M - Very clean finishing, and refreshing.
O - Good APA, quite drinkable and good for a hot day like today.
