look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a clear golden color with a one finger head of white foam floating atop the brew. The head had a decent level of retention, fading over about a 2 min. time period to leave a decent level of fizzy looking lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is light overall and consists mostly of a light bready smell . Along with these smells comes some very light floral and grainy smells.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather light overall, being heaviest of a corn and bready taste. These light flavors remain throughout the taste creating a base flavor for the brew. As the taste develops a light level of citrus and floral hop flavors come to the tongue with these taking the taste to its end and leaving a rather crisp taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super light, bordering on watery with a carbonation level that is quite high. The big carbonation is perfect for creating a light more refreshing brew, but just a bit more body may have been nice as it would have likely helped create a slightly more flavorful perception of the taste.

Overall- Sorta a standard American pale ale, light refreshing and crisp without a ton of flavor.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

A pretty much straight-across average light-end beer. Poured a golden straw color, clear, a small fizzy white head and noticeable bubbly carbonation. Light aroma of biscuity malts and distant floral hops. More of the same in the taste: light, biscuity, corn sweetness, lightly floral hops. Light body, non-threatening, but not too flavorful. Perfect for that guy that walks in and asks for a Miller Lite.

On-tap at the Gamble Mill. Listed as a German Pils when I reviewed, I am writing my review as though it is a blonde ale.

A: The ale is pale, a light straw color that can barely muster up any serious yellow hues. A plentiful white head, no lacing though, cames with the beer.

S: The nose is light, practically nonexistent. Breadiness is in strong supply, although countering hops are nowhere to be found.

T: Very light, dangerously drinkable. The only problem is that lightness has rendered the ale bland. Breadiness, biscuit, stands out but not much else follows on those coattails. My first beer at the Mill, an inauspicious start (luckily things picked up).

M: The mouthfeel never gets started, a bland biscuity ale that can serve as a useful gateway beer.

On tap from the microbrewery at Gamble Mill

A - Pale straw golden color with minimal head and lacing.

S - Nice floral aroma with a bit of breadiness...maybe just a hint of citrus

T&M - Lighter bodied with a nice crispness. Lot's of floral flavors with a hint of spiciness in the back typical of a pils. Manages to pack a good amount of flavor and complexity into a very reasonable ABV. If anything, perhaps seems a little too light for the style, but considering it's brewed with sessionable intent, not too far off.

D - Easy on the palate and lighter bodied, certainly one to keep ordering throughout the night. After three trips to Gamble Mill though, I'm starting to wonder if anyone there knows how to properly pour, as I never get any head on my beers.
