3.4/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. No freshness date.
Appearance: Straight pour into a pint glass. The color is light gold. One finger of eggshell-colored head left an even lacing that eventually turned spotted.
Smell: Well-balanced between pale malts and grassy/earthy hops. There is a touch of grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lime. The hops remind me of one of Mikkeller’s single-hop series beers, but I cannot remember which. D’oh! There is also a little candy caramel sweetness and toffee. Reminds me of a British pale ale.
Taste: Nice mouthfeel, but the flavors are on the lighter side. Pale malts, light caramel and toffee, grassy/earthy hops, and light hop citrus.
Drinkability: This is essentially light pale ale. I have no problem with it, either. I was just expecting a different emphasis regarding "extra" (*extra* pale ale, not *extra pale* ale). Very smooth and easy drinking.
Serving type: bottle
