This is my second beer from Columbus - had the Golden Ale a couple days ago and was pleasantly surprised. Now on to this one:
Well, we're not off to a great start - this is a little too dark of an amber color - almost a browner red. Sort of like tea that's had the lipton bag in it too long. No head to speak of - even after a fairly vigorous pour. Just a little white wisp along the top.
Nose isn't terribly pronounced either. A little cascade hop aroma and a little malty grains, but not a lot of either. Very light in the nose.
Surprisingly a fairly substantial hit of hops initially in the taste, but a light, watery moutfeel makes it hard to really appreciate. A little bit of yeast makes an appearance in the back. Unfortunately not a lot more to say - there isn't much going on here.
Mouthfeel is the real problem here. Very watery and insigificant. Low carbination beyond what a Pale should be.
