3.53/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Glass: 12-oz. pint glass
From: Alpine Beer Company in Alpine, Calif., on Jan. 5, 2013
Price: $4.50 (I think)
Poured a golden clearer color with 1-2 fingers (when I got it) of white head. Pretty good lacing on the sides and nice retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled pale malts, butter, honey, lemon grass and some bread.
Tasted similar to the smell. Butter, honey, lemon and grassy. Some light pine notes, but as citrusy as I would have thought.
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.
A decent pale ale overall. Considering I was drinking most of it in the cold darkness in the back patio, these ratings could change if I tried it again.
Serving type: on-tap

22oz bottle received via Growling at the Moon. Thanks for the brew, Justin!
Poured into a imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" off-white head over the clear amber brew. Head collapses slowly, with lasting lace. Aroma is balanced and understated.
Taste is sweet upfront, a peek of citrus in the middle, and balanced through the close. Mouthfeel is smooth, with easy drinkability. I, for one, will not slam Alpine for a brew that isn't over-the-top hoppy. Nice, approachable sessionable brew. Good stuff.

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass.
A - Pours a perfectly clear golden amber with a short, white head that leaves very little lacing. Nicely carbonated.
S - Not very hop forward, mostly malt notes on the nose, wheat is what I mostly pick up.
M - Easy drinking medium bodied beer with good carbonation.
T - More of what hit the nose, malty with a small amount of hops.
O - A nicely done pale ale but missing the hops that I would make me appreciate more.
