A - Very light blonde body, a little cloudy with much arising effervescense. Thin white head.
S - Smell is very light here. Some sweeter mild bread notes. Some floral notes as well.
T - A bitter beer, up front and throughout. No real presence of hops or malt. This pale is just that, pale. Its not bad its just missing alot.
M - This one has the mouthfeel of any other light beer. Its light.
O - Im slightly biased because i do like medium-darker beers but Im really just a fan of flavor. This beer lacks alot there and would only be appropriate for a summer bbq of sorts.
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
