A - Poured a clear, golden hue with lots of rising bubbles. About a finger and a half of white foamy head that lasted a little before leaving a thin ring. Great lacing all the way down.
S - Butterscotch candy is very noticeable. Caramel and maple hints as well. Breadiness. Hops are light and there.
T - Sweet in the front with a nice pale malty backdrop. Some of the caramel/butterscotch from the nose. Fruity hints and bready body. Then the hops come in, floral and herbal and balanced as they duke it out with the malt in the bittersweet finish.
MF - Lighter side of medium-bodied, well-matched carbonation. Buttery and smooth. Pretty drinkable.
O - A well-rounded, nicely balanced pale. A solid pick at the price.

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
