On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Pretty deep gold hue topped with a sparse head that left a bare film of lacing. The rich color spoke of the rich mouthfeel. Hardly a clue from the nose, but a full flavored ale. Sparse hops presence (which suits me fine) that is compensated for with some piney notes.

Bottom line is an enjoyable beer.

Poured a hazy light gold with short lived white head. The aroma is barely there with a slight hint of sweet and the faintest hops. The taste is also barely present and just about the same as the taste. There is a nice weight to the beer and a smooth finish. All in all, not much going on

Pours a hazy golden yellow. The 1/2 inch white head fades to just a thin film on top and leaves spotty lace.

The smell is of buttered biscuits, honey, orange juice and faint pine.

The taste is of bready grains and assorted citrus fruit with a pine, almost herbal, finish.

The texture is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

This is a well balanced pale ale with solid aromas and flavors.
