look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Looked good in the glass. Really nice lacing. The smell leaned more toward bready malts, but there was definitely some caramel and a light citrus/piney hop presence. Taste followed the nose pretty closely. Sweet and bready with notes of citrus, pine and spice. Mouthfeel was medium and lightly drying.

This is a very clean, very light Pale Ale that has a nice hop profile of pine and herbal notes while delivering a light malt backdrop. The appearance is very light in its copper hue with a thin fizz for a head. The aromas are subtle with pine, floral notes and a touch of caramel. The flavor follows suit with a very clean light finish. This is a good example of a Pale Ale but does little to set itself apart.
