Clear golden yellow and an off-white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. Citrus and fresh hop resin, grass aromas. Citrus and grassy flavors and light straw and bittering linger. Nice balancing sweetness and a slight wheat undertone. Rather heavy finish despite light body.

Easy drinking and hop flavored without the bittering making this the way a pale ale should be. Rather heavy to be refreshing but an enjoyable beer.

Pale malty nose and light fruit over earthy hops with some grain and malt and hop spice.
Fairly bright gold with a 2" lightly gold tinted foam cap with a very fine bead.
A medium light malt backbone supported by light fruit supports earthy and spicy hop flavors that give way to a moderate hop bitterness and lead to a drying finish with a light tartness and astringency.
A delightful very creamy medium light body and slightly above average carbonation makes for a very satisfying and refreshing beer.
