3.7/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a Fremont Brewing pint glass. Pours a light to medium golden amber with a two finger white head that dissipates in a few minutes to a thick film, leaving lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit malt, citrus and faintly piney hops, light citrus fruit. Flavor is light biscuit malt, mild citrus hops with a mildly toasty biscuit finish with light grain. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A pleasant, but understated pale ale that seems unusually tame for a beer from Fremont. The mellow flavor makes this a fine accompaniment to food. Nice but underwhelming.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Crisp golden amber, apple juice-y? right? Pillowy slik white head. Sticks around leaving its mark as the drink continues.

Nose is juicy: tropical fruits and floral hops. Some spice, some light malts support it all.

The tongue starts with a mild grassy hop spice. There is a definitive mint leaf somewhere in there that I really like. Not quite... thin, but kind of pastel? Lighter on the flavour, but a decent medium body. Some biscuity malts supporting it all keeping it in shape. Quite drinkable, decent carbonation, leaves a nice little coating.
Decent APA, would be good on a summer afternoon, but not something that's going to blow you away.

Serving type: bottle

4.45/5  rDev +20.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: a light orange with just a little bit of haze to it and a steady stream of bubbling. a finger of an off white head that slowly fades to a lacing on the sides

Smell: hops, both citrus and some pine. the malts are tough to discern

Taste: opens up with citrusy hops. toasted malts take over and mix with piney/spicy hops. ends up with a hint of lemon bread taste. very complex and tasty pale

Mouthfeel: pretty light and very refreshing

Overall: Wow. Thats a great pale ale. one of my favorites. Wish I could get more of these. great taste and refreshing as can be.

Serving type: can
