Pennsylvania

3.93/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Smell: Trace of apple, general fruitiness. Not strong-smelling.
Nose: Simple zestiness from hops and carbonation.
Taste: Zest, light malty syrupiness, clean, a bit sweet, substantial mouthfeel but not heavy.
Aftertaste: Sourdough hard pretzel, salty, residue in mouth prompts another sip. It warms me a bit.

A dependable standard of mine while living in Lacey, WA. Not extravagant, but it doesn't let you down when you want a decent beer. Around here, the price isn't bad: about $7.50 for a sixer. Wish it could be more available on the east coast.
