Appearance: Golden straw. Slightly hazy. Good Carbonation. Rocky, off-white head. Nice lacing on the glass.

Smell: Malt with some esters. Also, a little citrus.

Taste: A little sour with some bitterness on the finish. Muted. No flavor really stands out.

Mouthfeel: Lighter than what I would expect from a Pale Ale. Dry finish.

Overall: I'm a little disappointed in this one. I love a good Pale Ale, but his one really doesn't do anything for me. It's possible this one has been on the shelf a little too long. With no date on the bottle I can't be sure if this is what was intended by the brewer, or if time has had its way with this beer.
