3.43/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Crystal clear pale gold in color. Pure white, loosely formed head that settles to a solid layer.
Hoppy aroma, floral and fruity. Clean malt nose with a slighly vegetal quality.
There is a flinty mineral taste first off. Dry with a "back of the mouth" hop bitterness. A bit biscuity too. It finishes as dry as it started.
Medium body with a tingling carbonation.
A slighly above average pale ale, but I wasn't overly impressed. I was hoping for another California gem that would be readily available to me. Oh well. (518 characters)

Gold/copper color. Small head. Aroma is fruity (apricots and peaches) and a touch spicy. A medium bodied Pale Ale. Malts are mild, nutty and a touch sweet. Hops are slightly spicy and grapefruity. A milder flavored pale ale, more in the English style than the over-the-top West Coast style. Very smooth taste. It’s a very drinkable pale ale. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. (452 characters)

22oz. bottle.

A pale that is on the smoother and delicate side.

Pours an unclear gold with a good head and good lacing. A soft fruit scent. Malts are weak on the nose. There is a dry quality. Overall the scent is average.

The flavors are smooth. This is definately not a bold ale. A mild citrus flavor blends with some pepper and spice. There is a malty finish with an unripened bannana after taste. This is a very simple pale.

There is a creamy quality to this ale. Not heavy because it is smooth. One could manage to drink quite a few of these.

I thought this to be a nice simple pale. It even becomes more mellow as it sits. If you are not looking for an over powering or bitter pale, give this one a try. (725 characters)

3.08/5  rDev -13%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured a clear honey color with a tightly-fizzing white head. Good job of lacing the glass. Aromas were different than expected. Very corn-like, with a little bit of citrus and some malty sweetness. Taste was also not too pleasing. Had a very "lager"-like flavor. Hops are there, but not in the volume expected. Slightly bitter aftertaste, but mostly dominated by a macro-ish, almost metallic flavor. Some unpleasant flavors peek through near the end. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy. Drinkability is average. Nothing too special about this beer. I wish I would have purchased the 12oz instead of the 22oz size. (606 characters)

Poured a lager like gold with a rich foamy white head. Aroma was a little weak, malt was dominant. Very smooth but uninteresting taste to this ale. I could have been drinking a lager beer it seemed. Drinkability decent if your in the mood for downing a few without caring about complexity etc. A bit of a letdown and was not up to the fantastic dinner my mom fed us this evening. (379 characters)

Poured a deep orange/copper color with medium head,smell was very floral with some hrb in there as well.Would have liked a little more malt balance to this but had nice hop carachter to it very grassy and citruisy.Not a bad pale ale,but expected a little more from this brewery. (278 characters)
