Poured from a bottle.
Nice fresh aroma. Light amber clear liquid with generous white head.
Extremely well-balanced pale ale. Excellent pairing of hops and malt, just the right amount of each. A tinge of pineapple. Some grainy notes. A little bit of herbs.
Smooth finish. Nice light-to-medium mouthfeel.
Overall, a great session beer and a nice change of pace. I've had a lot of hop and malt monsters lately so I enjoyed something that was more easy going but still tasty and definitely balanced.

A: Thin white head that dissipates quickly. Copper color.
S: Pale malts. Caramel. Nutty. Slight honey.
T: Similar to Newcastle Brown except smoother and lighter. Upfront there are biscuit malts with some pale malts. Caramel notes throughout. Some grassy hop that tastes kind of like tea leaves. Finish is sweet and slightly fruity.
M: Light bodied. Easy drinking. Refreshing especially after being out in the sunshine all day.
O: A decent session beer worth drinking. Not amazing by any means but if you like the one and only then its a good beer to get into. I wasn't begging for another but I will definitely finish off the case I bought.
