A nice easy drinking ale.
Coppery and clear in color, it s an easy pour with little head and makes a great session beer. Overall I call this beer smooth, this ale is lightly hoppy with strong citrus notes though distinctly smooth on the finish. The oaky character comes out from the first and is apparent at the first whiff.

A good beer for any afternoon.

Appearance: little to no head. It does pour a beautiful translucent copper color.

Aroma: malty and a little sweet for a pale ale. Not very strong but pleasant.

Palate: starts with a caramel or honey taste. A little citrus and a mild but pleasant finish. Solid pale ale, I would drink again
