A-Peach colored...frothy white head...slightly overcarbonated.
S-Nice fresh floral aroma combined caramel like maltiness..nice..
T-Nice flavors without being over the top assertive...I get more of an orange marmalade base on the taste along with a good maltiness that leans again toward the caramel notes...
M-Perfect weight but a bit jazzed up in carbonation.
O-Nothing earth shattering here but a nice drinking, flavorful everyday pale ale with some character. A nice addition to the Minnesota beer scene that I will revisit from time to time in the future..

Tasted on tap in a pint glass at Sak's in WBL over 40 minutes, with and without food.
Pours a rather cloudy hazy bronze-orange with a moderate head that falls quickly. Minimal lacing.
Smells both bright and biscuit-like with a touch of earthy depth. Pine spice, grass, with pineapple and a touch of lemon. Pale malts with a touch of caramel come through the middle with a hint of floral essence.
Floral and herbal hop notes ride right alongside the bright start to the taste profile. Orange and touch of pithy grapefruit come later. Biscuit malt is the foundation, and it's not bad. Though the overall flavor profile lack heft. And it has an angular mid-palate element that detracts a touch from its drinkability.
Light to medium bodied with decent buzz of carbonation. Fairly smooth, but nothing exciting. Finishes tannic-dry.
Overall, this isn't a bad beer. And it's drinkable without eats. But after an interesting start, it gets a little boring the deeper into a glass you go.

This pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a foamy, beige head. The aroma is slightly malty with a hint of bitter hops. The taste is pretty decent for a pale ale. There is a texture with a well blended mix of grains and hops. This makes for easy drinking with a slight bitter finish.
