Really nice beer. Not heavy and easy to drink. Enjoyed on a warm afternoon and it is refreshing.

Appearance is as expected.

Smell is average. It does not smell too beery, as others I have tasted/smelled do.

Taste is really nice. As the bottle states, it is not too malty and not too hoppy. A nice balance.

I am impressed by the mouthfeel of this beer. It is a light-medium body, almost creamy, mouthcoating type.

Overall, I would drink this beer again. In fact, I would not find it difficult to drink more than two or three at a time. To me, that means a lot. I usually like to move from one beer to the next, so staying with one for more than a couple drinks is a good thing!

Cheers,
Joe

DATE REVIEWED: June 5, 2014... GLASSWARE: Howard's Pub pint... OCCASION: last "1" day of the year--close to the end... APPEARANCE: nice brownish amber body with slow, subtle effervescence; white tow-finger, pillowy head is uneven; a good cloudy haze... AROMA: caramel malts and some more subtle West Coast hops generate a soft, slightly nondescript experience... PALATE: good, substantial mouthfeel with a balanced attack--teeth are active while the throat feels smoothly engaged--a pleasure to hold... TASTE: malty--mostly caramel--and some lagerish notes; likewise, hops are agreeable and aromatic; this beer has sessionable written all over it--and literally, written on the label ... OVERALLL: an overly agreeable pale ale that is balanced enough to make friends of democrats and republicans, Yanks/Sox fans, and ale/lager drinkers....
