3.86/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

APPEARANCE: This is a bright beer. The pale, orange-yellow color almost matches the label on the bottle with a stark white head on top. The head foams up to about a finger and a half and then very slowly recedes until it caps the glass with about a quarter-inch of foam. Some very nice lacing develops at the top of the glass and eventually slides down the sides.

SMELL: A lighter aroma emerges from the glass once it has been poured, but sticking the nose into the glass provides a real treat; a wonderfully floral and slightly grassy aroma.

TASTE: A touch of caramel dances around the edges of a pleasant, but subtle hop flavor. The hops provide some citrus and a touch of grass.

MOUTHFEEL: It always surprises me how light this beer is especially after sticking my nose in the glass. The body is very light and it goes down incredibly easy. The carbonation just provides a very light tickle, which contributes to the ultra-drinkability of this beer.

OVERALL: This is simultaneously a very satisfying and unsatisfying beer. The lighter body, subtle hop flavors and lighter malt character leave the palate constantly wanting just a touch more, but on the other hand you can have more. At 4.9% this is a tasty, flavorful and easy drinking Pale Ale.
