Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a nice golden amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a good level of retention, leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a doughy and bready smell mixed with a moderately strong aroma of a light fruit nature of citrus and peach. These smells are rounded out by a bit of a floral and citrus hop smell, which add a nice balance to the other aromas.

Taste – The taste begins with a mix of bready tastes and a little sweeter fruit and caramel flavor. The fruit is of a tropical and citrus base with mango and tangerine there as well as a bit of a more orange taste. Along with these tastes there is a lighter level of hop upfront again being of a citrus nature of bitter grapefruit. The grapefruit grows stronger as the taste advances and is joined by other flavors of a floral nature. With even more caramel coming to the tongue at the end and mixing nicely with the hop and bread, one is left with a very smooth and pleasant flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side for a pale ale of 6.2 % abv. For the smooth flavors of fruit, hop and malt the feel is quite nice and makes for an easy but flavorful drinker.

Overall – This is a very enjoyable brew to drink with tons of flavor but still easy drinking for the pale ale style of the brew. Rather well done overall.
