2.53/5  rDev -28.7%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: A bright, light golden color with an average tight-bubble head.

Smell: I initially got an off smell. Sweaty sock. Hmmm. But then I got more citrus and specifically orange aromas.

Taste: It was tough for me to get past the initial off smell, but my palate adjusted and the taste evened out.

Mouthfeel: Medium to Light body, on spec for a Pale Ale.

Drinkability: This one has some hop bite, but the off smell killed my enjoyment. Hopefully just an off bottle. I’ll give any local brewery a second chance so I still look forward to my next Saint Archer.

Picked up a 22oz from Whole Foods on sale! I'll take any excuse I can to try a new SD beer.

A - Pours a hazy blonde/yellow with a half inch of cream-colored foam. Lighter than you might expect, but it's a welcome difference.

S - Slight malty sweetness behind a strong pine aromas. Getting a bit of grapefruit as well. Not the strong point of this beer, normally I prefer APAs with more herbal, floral characteristics. Pleasant, but leaves me wanting more.

T - Dank, resiny hop flavor with a lingering bitterness. Lots of pine, and the grapefruit stands out considerably more in the flavor than the aroma. Slight malt backbone showcases the hops without overpowering them the slightest bit.

M - Perfect. It's crisp and refreshing, with a lighter malt backbone allowing you to focus more on the hop flavor and bitterness. Moderate to high carbonation

O - A perfect beer for the summer, not for those who are looking for a maltier kind of pale ale. If you're looking for a very hoppy beer on the lighter end, this one's for you!

HUGE FAN of this beer! I love the Pale Ale style ('specially the American Pale Ale). Saint Archer doesn't disappoint in this regard.

True to the style, it has a slight hops bitterness that comes across as overly refreshing. With a moderate ABV and its canned availability, this is a must-have for any / all summer outings. I stock this in my fridge for mid-week depression cure... aka my go-to beer.

Love what the skater/surfers/slackers are doing at Saint Archers!

I enjoyed the citrus notes and other blend of hops. This can jumps to 3.75 for the taste and price. Best can from Saint Archer. The ale has a light percentage of alcohol, and has an easy taste to those not use to hops. People who are new to hops and can't take heavy beers could definitely enjoy this.
