4/5 rDev +1.8%
Poured into a standard pint glass: color is straw to copperish, clear, transparent with nice effervescence. Finger thick head presents then diminishes to thin top.
Smell presents as a nice wave of citric, slightly earthy hops with a very clean pale malt undertone.
Taste is clean, crisp well balanced mix of pale malt, very slight hint of caramel with a touch of biscuit. Hop bitterness is clean with not as much citric presence as the smell.
Mouthfeel is well balanced, clean and crisp with an almost perfect balance of hops and malt.
Overall, a very nice pale ale, understated malt backbone with a solid hop nose.

A-Pours a slight copper-hued golden color with half a finger of head.
S-Smells of lemon and guava with some light grain notes.
T-Slightly bitter, almost floral notes with a light malt backing.
M-Very light-bodied with medium carbonation and a very drying finish.
D-I'm glad I got this in a mix-a-six; I'd be hard-pressed to buy another one of these.
