Had this last night at the Main Street Brewery, and it was deee-licious. A thin head of foam floated above the light brown liquid, and plenty of foamy lacing stuck to the glass as I drank. Slight grassy and floral aroma. The taste was unique to the style, rather sweet for a pale ale, and the malt had a short bread like character. Hops was grassy, somewhat savory herbal, and maybe a touch floral. I think they hit the right malt-hop balance with this one. Very smooth and enjoyable to drink.

Looks nice. Decent body, but it seems too fruity to me. I'd hope for less fruit and more hop influence. There is a bit of a bite from the hops that show on a spicy level, but it'd be nice if there were more (or a lot more). A nice ale, but the malts are too high and the hops do not balance out well enough, in my opinion.

It poured a very nice golden yellow with medium foam and a lots of heavy lace clinging on the glass from top to bottom. Fresh hoppy smell and taste, with a medium of bitterness in the mouth and after taste. Very refreshing and the smell and taste were very fresh.
