A-clear amber color with a nice white head and decent lacing

S-citrus, pine, malt, hints of sweetness and earthiness

T-bready malt, lemon, orange, slight sweetness, hoppy astringent finish

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, clean

O-a solid pale ale, but I prefer their IPAs

Thanks to dujayhawk for this one. Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a CCB pint glass.

A: Clear burnished copper with a half-finger white head atop lowish visible carbonation.

S: Overall seems muted. Citrus and grassy hops over some sweet bready malt.

T: Citrus rind, pine bitterness, some grassy and dank hops. The malt presence is sweet but not caramel, and bready. The onion and/or spice hop character increases as the beer warms. Hop bitterness in the hang, but this doesn't seem overdone.

M: Heavy body for a pale ale. Low alcohol presence, and good carbonation sensation.

O: The Vienna malts are an interesting twist to a pale ale. I think it works pretty well in here. It allows a sweet malt presence without the caramel flavors that I think clash with most American hops. Enjoyable, but I don't know that I'd run out for another one.
