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.

This is a pretty good beer for the most part. I think it goes better with food though because for some reason everytime I have this beer by myself, I want to have something to eat with it. I often jokingly call it "high quality Alabama bud light platnium" because it's as strong as a bud light platnium but it taste significantly better although it's a medium bodied beer as oppose to being a light beer. I love the aroma this beer has for some reason. I often wonder if this would be a good beer to cook with because of the smell and it's not too heavy or too light which is what I like in a beer when using it as an ingredient. However my biggest complaint with this beer is the price. At $11 or so dollars a 6-pack, this is definitely not my to go to beer. You can get a 6-pack of Sierra nevadas that taste just as good if not better for $8.99 and this is not a good first choice of a beer for those on a budget. However this is a good choice of beer if you got a little bit of extra cash to burn and your having a pizza with a small group of friends.
