Appearance: Crystal clear amber with a short off white head that fades to a ring around the edge, leaving no lacing. It's so pretty!

Smell: Prominent yeast and malt

Taste: Spicy yeast and bready, slightly sweet malts, ending with mild hop bitterness that lingers on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat thick body with tons of fine carbonation.

Overall: Very tasty. Plenty of different flavors pop up, without any one of them overpowering.

Appearance- copper. Weak head retention, more aggro pour recommended

Smell- malty but not overly so, wood, warm

Taste- very smooth, malty, with a very lightly hoppy finish. Clean aftertaste with subtle complexities if you really concentrate

Feel- medium bodied, great feel for drinking easily

Overall- what I will remember: very drinkable, malty but clean aftertaste is nice, very subtle complexities. It's the opposite of a drain pour if that makes sense.
3.7

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear copper color.

Doesn't give off much smell, but I can smell some barley and bready malts.

Tastes like bready malts with a mild hop presence. Nothing is particularly overpowering or offensive here, and the overall flavor isn't too strong.

It goes down fairly smooth.

Overall a decent beer, but far from my favorite pale ale as well. That said, it still is a solid session beer.
