Appearence: Pours a dull clear amber-yellow with no head. Perfect clairty, sparse carbonation.

Smell: Smells very malty, with almost no hop presence. Light smelling, with only hints of bread and yeast.

Taste and Mouthfeel: The taste is weak. Very little hops, and all I can taste is a bread/corn flavor the doesn't do it for me. Nothing else. No complexity, not even tasty or flavorful. Light and boring tasting. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied.

Drinkability and Overall: I don't like it. I'm a fan of any Pale Ale, but an Extra Pale? What does that mean? Extra hops? Extra flavor? Nope. Extra weak.

Thanks, anyways, to rajendra82 for the bottle

Smells like butterscotch with some zesty fruitiness. Pours to a yellow orange with a nice two finger macro-bubble head. Taste is very earthy, but actually kind of bland. Nothing really stands out, hops or malt. Has a slight belgian twinge to it but otherwise is rather weak and unpronounced. Slight flat bitter finish but nothing up front. This beer is spineless. Mouthfeel has body but lacks carbonation. An unimpressive brew. Hopefully this is a bad bottle. I will try again if I get the chance to see if better
results prevail.
