Pale, yellow straw color, soapy white head. Scent brings light notes of juicy orange, lemon and grapefruit, light watery fruit, crackery malt and fresh grain. Nice clean, yet bitter, flavor with fruity citrus, tropical and watery fruit notes, fresh grainy and crackery malt, straw. Light bodied, crisply carbonated. Decent pale ale, light all around with some decent fruity flavor extacted from the hops.

On tap at Tired Hands. Pours a nice golden color with a good white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries wonderful notes of pine, grapefruit, and oranges. Incredibly complex for a beer of this strength. At the same time, it’s not overbearing. Flavor has a touch of malt in the background and finishes with a beautiful spread of citrus flavors and pine. Light body with good carbonation and a firm bitterness. Incredibly sessionable.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Golden-yellow pour, slightly hazy, with a small white head that receded to a ringlet and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Another nice beer by TH that, along with the Tabel, just shows how tasty a beer can be while still retaining a low ABV and having a lighter body. It's really what the "session beer" is all about. Crisp nose, hop-forward, citrus and pine. More of the same in the taste, citrus and pine hops, crisp and fresh, good caramel malt balance, all in a small 3.5%ABV package. Light-medium body, a tiny bit thin, as it should be, mildly bitter aftertaste, smooth and tasty, easily drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub, a delicate and flavorful pale with good hop presence. Slightly hazy light gold color with a finger or so of white head that settles down to a thin band on top. Good lacing clings to the sides of the glass. Hop forward nose full of citrus: grapefruit, lemon, and orange, followed by some lighter floral notes.

Lots of lovely citrus and floral hop notes; little in the way of sweetness; very mild and gentle caramel malt character that never intrudes on the hops. Moderately bitter but not so much that the subtleties of the hop flavors are overwhelmed in any way. Amazing taste for such a low ABV beer. Mild lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.

Medium to slightly light bodied with medium carbonation and a smooth but crisp overall feel. Incredibly easy drinking.

Served on-tap at the brewery and later out of a growler. This will be a combination of the two.

A - Pours golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small streaks of lace down most of the glass.

S - This one has a ton grassy hops, fresh citric fruit, some pale malt and some pine resin. This one is really hoppy yet still well balanced.

T - Starts off with a big dose of hop bitterness that never really goes away. Hints of pale malts, fresh tropical fruits - mostly grapefruit - and some lemon and orange zest. A bit of pine resin creeps in at the end of each sip.

M - Smooth, hoppy feel with moderate carbonation. The low ABV. of this one makes it incredibly easy to drink, add in the hops and you have one great beer.

O - A low ABV. hop forward pale ale you say? Sounds like heaven to me. When I first ordered this Jean said it would be the best beer I had all day, little did I know he was right. Awesome stuff for sure.

On Tap at Tired Hands.

Leaflet sports the pale very well with a very bright golden color with some pale yellow in there as well. As always a nice bright white inch of foam on top leaving significant foam on the glass. The scents pop out with pale malts shining bright with fresh grass, a lot of citrus mixed in with pine. Grapefruit and the like. Fresh biscuits and some straw. At 3.5% there is a nice amount of flavor. Bright hops leaving a good amount of bitter on the tounge. The body is light, the taste is there and balanced, it goes down like water, with active carb mind you, and it's just good beer.

On tap at Tired Hands.

Pours a cloudy pale golden color with hints of ruby against the light with a wispy stark white head that faded to a thick collar and trace lacing. Nose is all hops, sweet fruit with lemon and citrus peel and caramel malt. Medium thick, well carbonated body with a crisp dry finish. Leafy hops in the flavor and mild bitterness in the finish with lemon zest and pine hops. A phenomenal APA, and at 3.5% incredible for a ding approved session beer.

Growler shared by Paul, served in a Tired Hands Glass, I'm not an animal. Beer is clear and yellow with a soft white head of small bubbles, some lacing, moderate to low carbonation.

Aroma is piny and hoppy. Nice.

Beer is light in body, clean on the palate, mild hop flavors and a little tiny bit of bitterness on the end. This is craft beer's answer to the light beer market and I like it. I would definitely have this again. Especially on draft.
