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

Drank on tap in a 16oz pint glass.

Appearance: very light brown/yellowy appearance. It was much lighter than other pale ales i have had before. It yielded a decent 1 finger head that dissapated quickly.

Smell: Very tight on the nose, aromas of hops came through but not overpowering. Lemon scents and a little bit of grass came through as well.

Taste: Very nice hops taste thats not overwhelming at all but it also wasnt expected. Sticky sweet hops flavors mixed with lemons and grass.

Mouthfeel: nice medium bodied ale.. what I expected except it could have had a little better carbonation. It was a little flat but it could have been a bad batch or something.

Drinkability: nice beer, i would venture out to try other beers. Comparing to other brew pubs pale ales its a little weak on the wow factor. not special about this beer but nothing to wrong with it either. very drinkable but theres better stuff out there

Serving type: on-tap

An average ale; it presented well; the color and aroma were better than average; I expected a full robust ale; hoqwever, the hop finish was mild (I expected more) and the mouthfeel was thin; overall, it better than some, worse than other; the balance of this ale was lacking

Pours pale golden amber with no head, medium carbonation. Smells of alcohol and a bit of wheats and hops. Taste is rather bitter from hops and alcohol, there isn't much to balance it out though. I was left with an empty bitter tongue wanting something more. I'd choose another from this brewery again, but not the pale.
