packaged on 05/04/12
Slowly poured into a standard pint glass.
A: Poured to about two fingers of rich, thick, foamy, off-white head that was robust and long-lasting. The brew is a gloden straw color and cloudy.
S: The aroma is mild and consists of a sweet caramel malt and floral hops.
T: The taste is a very pleasant blend of malt sweetness, some floral hops, and just enough bitterness. Each flavor is mild and they fit together well.
M: This beer has a very light body and is very smooth with a clean finish.
O: This is a simple and basic Pale Ale. It is a great representation of the style. The mild flavors blend together to create a pleasant and pleasing beer. No frills, no twists, and nothing hitting you over the head. This is just a classic, simple Pale Ale.

(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
