Two pints at Logan Hardware. Quick review from written notes.

Hazy saturated orange, thin compact layer of white foam, minimal spotty lace in the glass.

Pungent aroma of orange peel and citrus. Taste is citrusy and lightly bitter, melange of orange and grapefruit, hop driven but easily drinkable. Light bodied and smooth with a dry bitter aftertaste. Enjoyable and one to seek out.

12 oz. bottle, bottled on 041, 2014. My first beer from Ale Syndicate, acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a nice bright hazed golden yellow-orange colored body with one finger of frothy white foam for a head. Decent head retention, some bubbles rushing topside, and some mild thick scattered lacing. It looks pretty nice.

S - Smell is predominated by a funky, earthy, almost brett-like yeast presence, with some bready honeyed biscuit malts lingering in the background. Maybe the faintest notion toward piney hoppiness, but this thing is mostly all yeast and malt forward. Pleasant enough if you enjoy that type of thing. Maybe slightly buttery / diacetyl in the nose.

T - Yeast isn't funky or bretty like the nose implies - but crisp, earthy, and bready. Bready honeyed biscuit malts play an integral role also. Wheaty and grainy. Mild hop resins noticeable on the end, but no real hop-derived fruitiness is present.

M - Feel is crisp and clean, with some residual breadiness, mild metallic aftertaste, and perhaps just a hint of hop resins. Light-bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a tame and crushable pale ale if there ever was one. Not exactly breaking any boundaries on the flavor profile, but it works well enough for a pale ale. It wouldn't be my first choice, but I'd have it again. I look forward to more from this brewery.

Served on tap at Jerry's Sandwiches (Andersonville)

Beer pours a light golden brown with a nice frothy head. You can smell the hops right away, but upon taking the first sip, you realize that there is very little bitterness at all. It tastes like this was dryhopped aggressively, with only a small amount of hops in the boil. The finish is refreshing and the body and mouthfeel are pretty light.

I would love to have a 6 pack of this in my fridge in the summer!
