3.85/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Very clear straw gold. Smallish cap of whitish foam sits on top as weel as lacing placed about in some droopy, short sheeting.

Aroma is of pale breadyness, like that of white crusts, a bit of peach, pear, and apricot sift about. Overall pretty tame nose.

Taste has a peculiar twist within its bready maltyness. A bit crispy, biscuity, pretzely...lightly tangy with that certain fresh bread doughy sweetness. Hops are low on the scale with just a small portion seeping through with some unripe white peach, perhaps some lightly toned in starfruit and red pear. Dullish lemony floralness are noted as it gets into the finish. Not much in the finish, pretty simple, a bit flat, and dull. Or, Pale, if you will.

Body lays a bit flat with the carbonation and sits just under a medium mouthfeel. Starts a bit empty and picks up a general steam of pick me up as it goes. Pretty much the younger brother beer of Gemini. The only other brew from Southern Tier I steer away from. As Pales goes, this stuff is a little above average, but not by much.
