look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

bottle picked up at Wegman's -I enjoyed this on tap before and wanted to try in the bottle -enjoyed chilled in a mug.

The color is resplendent tarnished golden with good clarity/visible carbonation and thick white cap with copious lace stickage. The smell is herbal spice with some hop fruitiness and yeast esters augmenting with slight apple notes and mild sweet toasted malt. The feel is balanced well with hops giving a bite up front relaxing into a slight sweet tinge of malt with moderate carbonation and semi-dry finish with low alcohol in the feel.

The taste has some pine hop flavors with herbs and slight grassy tinges with a light dried fruit element from the yeast. The malt flavor is mostly dry with slight toastiness you may expect in a pale beer with some nice caramel accents and the hops become citrus as the finish arrives with some light lemon and possibly a hint of grapefruit. The malt and yeast anchor the beer with some very gentle pear and pine returns in the hop flavor as it warms. The overall take is a good Pale ale or ESB as it is listed here with plenty of drinkability a very quaffable brew to my taste.
