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

Extremely light pale ale. Lacks excitement next to other Pa's. Easy drinking.
