Appearance: Clear gold with tiny bubbles rising through and a fluffy white head.

Smell: Faint noble hops, a bit of yeast.

Taste: Good blend of yeast, malt, and hops up front, into a bit of sweetness and finally some residual bitterness. Very well blended together.

Mouthfeel: Not very thick and moderately carbonated.

Overall: Nice balanced beer, like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Hard to get super excited about it, but easy to enjoy the subtle complexities.

At half the price of my Duvel, this is a great alternative. It has an extremely clean hoppy taste and is very refreshing at only 168 calories.
