Beautiful golden straw color with lots of bubbles. Holds a small head of white foam that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is grassy, minimal fruit. Taste is nice and clean grassy. Not much fruit but piney resin on the back end lingers nicely. I've enjoyed peeper on more than one occasion and overall this is a very enjoyable, very drinkable beer. I'd recommend anything that these guys bottle.

Good head, recedes fairly quickly. Very light in both color and mouthfeel, like a pilsner. Moderate alcohol level. Very sessionable.

At the same time, it has a great hop profile: grass, citrus, pine. Very fresh and clean tasting. Dry.

Not as hoppy as their other beers. And even lighter bodied.

I think this is a perfect gateway beer for someone who doesn't like "good" beers. It's just better than most beers without being abrasive at all, and without using sweetness to balance it out. Just pleasant hop flavors with a hint of bready malt.

Picking up a very old bottle of this 4/14 is the date so over 8 months. Purchased from the House of 1,000 for just 5 bucks.

A - One of the most pale ales I ever seen it's like a hazy pilsner or weiss. Very bright yellow with still a 1/4 inch of head that takes a bit to settle to a ring. Mild lacing.
S - A shadow of itself mild leafy hops mixed with some sweet malts and a touch of grains.
T - Not bad it's rather mild not overall harsh or soured at this point. Mild hops and some malt sweetness. Smooth.
M - Light to medium body it's not a light beer but good.

Overall not sure if I would get this again I should have gotten another bottle of Titan porter.

Poured from bottle (bottled 11/18, consumed 1/11) to tulip glass. Straw to light gold color with average size head, 1 inch froth head which quickly diminishes and slightly hazy body from bottle conditioning. Fruity aroma with grainy, bready malt similar to a Munich Helles. Hops come through with citric notes of lime and earthy tones underneath. there are additional notes of cinnamon slight clove golden raisins and Moscato grape sweetness. The body comes off as light and dry with lively carbonation. Flavor profile is balanced, not overly sweet but with a pleasant hop bitterness lingering on the palate.
