Very mediocre Pale Ale. On as beer scale of "Budweiser to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale" this beer grades out a lot closer to Bud. Looks pretty good. Nice clear golden color, with a smallish white head. Minimal patches of filmy lacing and average head retention.
Smell is a little grassy hops, not much else. Taste has mild biscuity malt and a little grassy hops. Did not taste crappy adjunct materials but the overall flavor was weak and bland.
Mouthfeel is thin like an adjunct lager with a little crispness from the grassy hops.
On the whole a very average lawnmower beer.

Yellow against my white review screen, but golden orange against my walls. 1 1/2 finger whitish head that leaves decent lacing. Carbonation is evident.
Light but nice floral/herbal and citric "bouquet" Over ripe citrus mainly. Occasionally a whiff of vanilla.
Light sweet malt upfront but bitter citrus rind then dominates. A bit of lemony citrus punches through next, before grapefruit rind rises through the finish.
Light in body, highly carbonated early on, but it then settles down a little. Somewhat drying with a light stickiness. Burn of carbonation in the throat.
An okay beer. Overbalanced to the bitter in my opinion. I would freely drink it again if it was offered me, but I probably wouldn't go in search of it.
