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.
