4/5  rDev -2.7%

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic pint.

Appearance: Clear golden amber with decent white head.

Smell: Hoppy aroma with grapefruit and orange mostly.

Taste: Definitely more hoppy than malty. Fairly strong orange, grapefruit and pine notes from hops. Some light biscuit and tea notes. Finish is surprisingly bitter for such a low abv beer.

Feel: Light body with good deal of carbonation. Very dry finish.

Overall: Another good sessionable beer. I think the bitterness may be a titch high for something meant to be consumed quickly, but nice flavors overall.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tall pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big three finger off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A very juicy hop forward aroma with good hints of citrus fruit and caramel malt. Upfront citrus with hints of orange marmalade, lemon zest, grapefruit, mango, and pineapple. Also some hints of floral and earthy hops with some grass. Solid malt presence with hints of caramel, biscuit, grains, straw, and yeast. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like the smell, a nicely juicy and bready hop forward taste with notes of citrus and caramel. Upfront juicy citrus presence with notes of oranges, lemon zest, grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. Floral and earthy hops with notes of grass. Good soft malt backing presence with notes of caramel, tea biscuit, straw, grains, and yeast. A very solid English style taste.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and very smooth. Finishes dry.

Overall: A very good light bodied citrusy Pale Ale. Good crisp citrus hop notes with a nice biscuit malt backing. Comes off like an English style Bitter similar to Surly Bitter Brewer. Nicely done.
