Received as an extra courtesy of seh410 in a recent trade.
22 oz. bottle served in my Dogfish Head Signature Glass
This beer poured a lovely golden yellow, with a hint of orange. A nice healthy pure white head that lingered for some time and left nice lacing.
The smell of this one lacked some of the hoppy aroma I like in other pale ales. It hat a nice malty smell with a faint fruity smell, cannot quite figure it out but almost like a pear scent.
The taste also had a nice malty flavor. However, it does not have that hop characteristic that I enjoy on other APA's.
This beer had a rather light mouth feel to it. Did not seem to be very carbonated. With that being said . . . .
To me this is a basic, though well balanced pale ale. This is definitely a very drinkable and enjoyable beer.

A = a nice cloudy amber. My pint was served extremely cold, probably due to the sub-zero temperatures in the cellar during the cold NH winter. As a result, it had only a slight head. I actually had to wait awhile for it to warm up for the rest of my tasting.
S = Brisk? Can I use that term for beer? Also, a slight scent of citrus and yeast/bread. No detectable hops, light if any, and that makes me happy.
T = Reminded me very much of a heavy pilsner. Crisp, nice medium-light flavor. Very drinkable.
M = Again, like a heavy pilsner, if there is such a thing. It complimented my lunch quite nicely!
O = Even if I didn't seek this ale out, I would order it again if I saw it on a menu. I would even drink it sans food, as it is crisp, refreshing and leaves no "beer-ish" aftertaste. A very nice beer, indeed!
Serving type: on-tap
