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.

Purchased in Poway CA at Distellers Market. Pours A orangey yellow with a thin head that fades quickly. Very little lacing. Smell is very nice with plenty of hops and fruit in the nose. Thin mouthfeel, lots of carbonation. Very hoppy in the taste but the thing that jumped out to me was the citrus on the palate. Hoppy and citrus. Almost to the point of an ipa as far as hop flavors go. A nice pale ale.

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.

Had this beer on tap at McGhee's Tavern in town. 22 oz glass -

This beer was a clear pale yellow, with a 1/2" white foam head, and lively carbonation. The aroma was dominated by pale malt, backed by light citrus hops. The taste was also dominated by malt and backed by a nice light citrus hop bitterness. The mouthfeel was medium body, with nice carbonation. There was some lacing down the glass sides.

This beer was very tasty and pleasant to drink. It was dominated by malt but backed with a nice bitterness. Great beer for someone that doesn't think they like craft beer.
