3.43/5 rDev +0.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A - A hazy, golden yellow with thin lacing.
S - Malty sweet with light hints of fruit and citrus.
T - Bready malts and subdued grassy and spicy hops. Nothing really jumps out here.
M - Good mouthfeel for a pale ale. Moderate body with medium-high carbonation. Dry finish.
O - Nothing too special here. An average, easy drinking pale ale. Nothing more, nothing less.
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
