Had on tap at St. Elias.

Let me preface this by saying that the previous reviewer hit this on the head.

The beer looked a nice light golden color. However, the nose is non-existent (REALLY). The beer had an acceptable bitterness, but no noticeable hop flavor. Also, the mouth feel was very disappointing, as this was one of the most "watery" beers I have had in recent memory and probably the most watery pale ale I ever have tried.

Let me put it this way, its a light ale (pale), but pretty uncharacteristic for what anyone would consider indicative of the style. Maybe they were going for a session beer? But at any rate you shouldn't be eager to try it.

Grade: C-/D+

Appearance: looks very light copper color, thin head, small white bubbles, too cold as all of their beers

Smell: where are the hops. It smelled like...hmmmm...nothing. Maybe some slight malt scent but I had to reach for that too.

taste: see "smell". Very bland, I've had more flavor from a Bud Light! Very diappointing. Seriously, between it being served too cold, I had a hard time picking up any hop flavor at all. Even the malt characteristics were very hidden. Tasted just a step above water, with a slight aciidic bite.

Mouthfeel: as with most of their beers, very thin.

Drinkability: probably would work as a lawnmowing beer, but I'd rather have a Corona with lime.
