The pour had less than a fingers-worth of head which was short-lived along with a small amount of lacing that disappeared quickly. The Color was a light amber with a filtered clear transparency.
There was little to no aroma that could be ascertained from the brew; however, after some persistence on my part, I could identify a slight hint of toasted malt. I could not detect any presence of hop on the nose.
Starting flavor is mostly that of toasted malt which lingers into the midway where a simultaneous introduction of hops can be detected. The hop taste itself is appropriately mild with a sticky and slightly bitter finish.
The feel of this beer is quite pleasant from start to finish. It starts smooth and finishes crisp and dry. In essence, it's very forgiving on the palate.
I'd have to classify this as an outstanding session beer. Most people would have no difficultly putting back multiple pints; and despite this, it's not a lite beer by any means. A pint goes down fast and easy while being fairly consistent from the top to bottom of the glass.
I had two pints, one toward the end of a keg and a second from the start of a new one. There was definite consistency since I could not discern any significant variation between the two pours.

enjoyed at the brewery this evening. (BTW they do $3 pints of all drafts and 1/2 off on all their pretty tasty "small plates", 3-7 pm Mon-Fri, a good deal, and a nice way to get to try a bunch of stuff on the menu and on tap)....getting back to this offering, it poured slightly cloudy, moderate amber, typical pale ale looking head, mild nose of the expected malt/hop combo. This is a solid if not spectacular take on the ever popular APA style. Good malt layers cross weaved with a respectable/balancing thrust of grainy hops. Thoroughly enjoyable, sesssionable and a nice compliment to the salad/wings/quesadilla that was consumed. Respectable, balanced and well worth a try.
