Fairly average stuff.
Pours a pale golden color. Little head, less than a finger thick. A good amount of carbonation. Not to my liking. Yeast clouds throughout, especially at the bottom.
Smell : Pretty average pale ale stuff. In fact much lighter on the hops. Little floral and a lot of grains.
Taste : Very much the same as smell. Nothing great to write about. Not very bitter. Regular grain stuff. Decent amount of hops for a ale ale. But then, there are much better beers in the same style.
Mouth feel : Medium bodied feel. Carbonation kills the likability.
Serving type: bottle

(on tap at Pistola's - served in a shaker pint)
A: fairly cloudy with dry hop residue... sun-baked golden grass color... lazy stand of head, falls flat... looks messy, raw, amateur
S: a bit flat - old dry malt, farmyard grass... dried flowers, dried citrus peel hop aromas peeking through
T: grassy-sepal, green tea-like hop bitterness - unmistakable dry hop source... hop flavors are pretty straight-up wildflower with a tinge of citrus... they weren't lying, the malt is full, bread loafy, and bold - the bitterness cuts through over it, but still some sloppy balance is maintained
M: nearly medium-bodied, added roundness from hop polyphenols, etc... tannic bitterness shocks the tongue a bit... protein-grainy flow
O: kinda like a pale ale done like a rustic, homespun saison - reminds me of Hof Ten Dormaal's Blond that I had recently, just with slightly different yeast character and more biting hop bitterness
Serving type: on-tap
