look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Type: Pale ale - Blonde
Poured from a 375ml bottle

Appearance: Nice golden color with white head. Left white lacing.

Smell: This has a fairly simple smell - mostly malt to me. After swirling as I drank to kill some carbonation, I detected more grassy and earthy. Slight caramel.

Mouthfeel: Nice body to the mouthfeel - just enough - a bit creamy like.

Taste: Light malt with a bit of wheat and light sweetness and caramel (from a light crystal malt?). Great hop balance in this which pairs well with the level of carbonation and malt flavours. There is definitely a number of different hops - I can definitely detect williamette (on review of their site I see that it has Cascade, Willamette, Golding and Hallertau). This just seems so balanced beautifully.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A lovely deep golden amber with a thick and distinct white head. A good deal of lacing.

Smell: Hoppy aromas, a bit fruity, a bit grassy. There's something almost caramel-ish going on.

Taste: A surprising malty sweetness up front (that remains quite crisp) followed by a wave of pleasant fruity notes, and finishing out with hoppy bitterness. This last hoppy note stays on the tongue for quite a while and intensifies as it lingers.

Mouthfeel: First impression is crisp, light, very bright and active, which almost seems to transform into a very smooth, creamy and rich mouthfeel.

Overall: What is exceptional about this beer is it's superb balance – from the hops and malts to the light yet creamy mouthfeel, every point in this beer has a perfectly weighted counterpoint. Quite good, I highly recommend it.
