This is a pretty decent pale ale from Kirkland (Costco) that is purchased at $19 a mixed case in my neck of the woods. It's a nice golden yellow poured into a glass with a decent head and moderate lacing. The smell is modest but inviting nonetheless for its balance between malt and hops. The taste mirrors this in that it has decent malt sweetness and hop bitterness and zest on the finish. This is a very non-taxing or over powering beer that is really easy and enjoyable to drink. Pretty good for the price. The other beers in the mixed case follow along these lines in that they are honest, easy drinkers with good flavor.

A friend of mine bought a case of these mixed Kirklands, so he gave me a couple bottles. I'd had their IPA before, which wasn't in any way terrible, so I'm having some pleasant anticipation on these.
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a crystal clear pale orange with a good amount of bubbles rising throughout the drink feeding the bone-white head. The nose was basic with mild grains, vegetal hops, greens. Seems to be a standard PA aroma. The mouth is crisp, unsurprisingly with the vast amount of visible bubbles. Medium depth. Good clean finish.
Smooth creamy flavors. Mild to moderate bitterness of leafy greens, crackers, some mildly bitter pithy citrus rind. Easy finish. This is in no way offensive. I've had some bad Pales that just taste "off," but this was mild and pleasant. I'd have it again. It's not earth shattering, but it is easy to drink.
