Can brought in to share by Curran.

Pours a fairly pale yellow, with a slight tint of orange, with a half inch head, and a good amount of lacing down the glass.

Smells like caramel, and some grassy hops. The hop aromas don't exactly dance out of the glass here- fairly muted. Don't know if its the recipe or the age. Probably the recipe.

The caramelly malt flavor, slightly biscuity and sweet, is really nice. It doesn't really feel like a pale ale, though- I think this is a pretty old recipe, so maybe this was hoppy back in the day. Now, it's just mild and sweet to me. Still tasty, though- just a little bit boring.

This one has fairly light body, with a crisp mouthfeel, and a moderate to high amount of carbonation. Very drinkable.

Nothing crazy, certainly doesn't taste bad, there's just not a whole lot going on.

A - Extremely light pale hazy yellow body with bright white head. Good retention and nice lacing.

S - Tart citrus notes

T - Starts dry with slight citrus hop. Apricots and lemon moves in along with some malt sweetness. Flavors round over in the finish.

M - Medium body with moderate/high carbonation. Somewhat sticky

O - Not bad. I wish it stayed dry throughout but still very drinkable.
