[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

The pour was a clear golden orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that fully dissipated in seconds, and pretty much had no lacing at all.

The aroma was super light of a light bread malt, pine and citrus hops and a mild soapy yeast and had hints of citrus (orange and grapefruit) and caramel.

The taste was mild like the aroma, with a slight bitterness and a touch of caramel throughout and had a light citrus peel finish. The flavor was only around for a short time following the swallow, and was crisp and refreshing although it faded rather quickly.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a slightly dry texture and a mild carbonation.

Overall a this was a somewhat light Pale Ale, which did have a decent taste and a nice crispness along with a really good drinkability. This is a great brew for those really hot summer nights…

Pale golden body was clear, and the head was a two finger thick layer of foam. The aroma was grainy and slightly vegetal with a dash of piney hops. The taste was oddly sour which was followed by a nondescript bitterness from the hops. The body felt refreshing and light with the tangy sourness helping the beer go down easy. Not a bad beer to accompany some food or when enjoying a game with a friend.
