A - Pale orange color. Crystal clear. Minimal head and lacing
S - Mild - almost bland. Certainly not the hoppiness that you would expect from a pale ale
T - Slight hints of citrus - about the only pale ale characteristic of this beer
M - Decent mouthfeel. No bitter after taste
O - Seems more like a lager to me (except with the hints of citrus), but went down well on a hot sunny day on the beach

Bottle in trade with Burg. Thanks man! Pours clear golden with a half finger white head. Aroma much like a pils surprisingly (until I heard that they used German malts here, then it made sense) with some hay, light fruity hops, a bit of caramel. Not bad smelling. Flavor is OK with light hay and hops and a definite German influence here. A bit more caramel tones than a pils, though the flavor is a bit watered down like with their IPA, both of which seemed to be going on the session strength direction rather than the flavor direction. Light bodied with low to medium carbonation for the style. Not bad. Maybe a gateway beer for some to the good stuff.
