A: bright golden orange very attractive, initially, with thick foamy head which reduced quickly almost no lacing.
S: hop dominate, flowery aroma almost sweet.
T: sweet thin caramel with smooth hop flavor.
M: light kind of thin but still pleasant and round with dry hoppy finish.
O: this is a sold beer with an interesting flower hop aroma.

No head, little scent, thicker dark golden color. Very smooth, homemade style carbonation that tingles the tongue as it goes down. Light, sweet (not fruity) flavor, almost like sugar/honey. Medium-light body, surprisingly light for its appearance. Very easy to drink. Could easily drink a whole six pack.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Classic pale amber with a hint of orange color to it. Head makes a soapy and good retention size three fingers with lots of swiss cheese bubbles. Some decent lacing while drinking.!

Nose is quite nice. Toasty malts and brown sugar. Some nice floral and grass like hop which is subtle on the nose.

Soft malted body with a light texture but good depth on first sip. Toasty angle continues with a light hop spice herbal floral presenece it seems. Slightly chewy body to match also.

Overall pretty solid basic pale ale with a good floral touch that is nice.
