Thanks to pgh_penguins for the can.

Appearance: Burnt orange. Head is small and off-white with decent retention. Leaves a small cap with sporadic bubbles for the duration. Moderate carbonation on the pour. Some darker golds at the edges when held to direct light.

Smell: Toasted bread. Lightly caramelized malts. Bready. Some pithy bitterness. Hops run a touch herbal with some floral and citrus elements. Cooked. Slightly sweet in balance with the light roasted/toasted malts and the clean hops. A touch nutty with some grass and a bit of husk and cereal grains. A touch of pine needle and some vague tropical fruit (peach and mango). Really soft yeast adds a bit more dimension.

Taste: More of that toasted malt. Vague backing nuttiness. Toasted grain, some wheat husk, and hay. A touch of cereal grain and a mildly earthy hop presence. A very vague touch of pine needle bitterness coupled with some grapefruit flesh and a mild pithy finish. Malts are lightly sweet offering up some cooked sugars. A bit of a raw grain underneath. Very well balanced. Yeast adds a touch of fruity esters and a soft finish to the whole thing. A touch of pale malt thrown in the background as well. Bready.

Mouthfeel: Medium bordering on light body with a moderate, slightly bubbly, carbonation. Clean and a touch crisp on the finish.

Overall: Better than a jam band.

A solid drinking pale ale. No frills and not a lot to write home about, but that's ok here.

Serving type: can

16oz can

Quite dark for a "session pale" - very bready with notes of spiced dough and rye. Rather dull hop profile and lacking characteristics I would like to see in a 'session'. One of these was enough - not a beer to revisit in the future.

Serving type: can
