Bottle conditioned pale ale.
botlled 2/16/13 This sample is five months old so...

The body has an orange amber color. The head is tall and beige sitting there on top. Robust carbonation. The beer is only slightly hazy. i was expecting more along the line of wheat beer haze since it was bottled condition.
Aroma is pretty hoppy with some citrus zip and floral notes.
This lean tasting beer is nicely balanced. The hops have a more dank flavor and not so much any one particular flavor. Malts are sweet and flavorful.
On the palate it drinks thin and watery. There is low bitterness and finishes clean.
Overall it was a pretty good APA, a style which seems to have been forgotten these days.
I thought it needs more flavor because it tastes somewhat washed out but it was good.

Pours a hazy pineapple-yellow body with a small white head. Looks lively. Silky lacing.
Smells lightly of orange rind and grassy perfume, with malts underneath.
Tastes just like it smells. Finishes a bit dry, but refreshing nonetheless.
Mouthfeel is soft and the hops impart a pleasant bite.
This is a lighter, refreshing style I don't visit too often. Great after the lawn-cut.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A - Hazy golden color with a thick white foam and floating yeast. Steady stream of carbonation floating to the top.

S - Citrus and floral hops but the citrus comes through the strongest.

T - Pretty tame Pale ale. The Citrus hops are at the fore front with some pale malts. Not a ton of complexity in flavor but pretty easy to drink.

M - Mouth feel is very good in my opinion. Almost creamy. I hate beers that come through watery and that is certainly not a concern with this one. Also a little bit of carbonation on the tongue does wonders for this beer.

O - In all fairness Pale Ales are not my favorite style but this one is pretty sessionable. If you really enjoy the style it is worth a try. Its interesting how tame this beer is for Southern Tier, a brewery notorious for going over the top with sweetness, flavors, ABV and just about anything everything else.
