3.8/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a N'Ice Chouffe beer flute in low altitude Los Angeles, California, in me gaff. Reviewed live. Expectations are very high given the brewery and me past experience with it.

A: Pours a one finger head of light cream, fair thickness, and pretty good retention. Colour is a clear yellow. Generally appealing (and what's expected) for the style. Nothing unique here, but there's nothing wrong with that.

Sm: Hoppy and fresh, making me excited to try it. It's a balanced floral type of aroma. Very pleasant and inviting. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Very pleasant. Nicely hoppy, but still really well balanced. Fresh and well built. I'm quite impressed by the balance, but the biggest drawback is the beer's simplicity. I suppose it's complex enough for a pale ale, and refreshing. I like the flavour. Well executed. No alcohol comes through at all (not that it should at 5.00%).

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavour nicely. Not too thick or too thin. Enjoyable and apt. Not at all watery.

Dr: Incredibly drinkable; even my non-beer-drinking housemate from South Africa digs this one. It's a really pleasantly built pale ale that doesn't try to do more than it needs to. Another good brew from Alesmith, who continues to impress me.
