3.15/5  rDev -9%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy straw amber with a quarter inch white head and almost no lacing. Aroma is sweet, of cherries, some spices, lemongrass, and yeast. Mouthfeel is light, very carbonated. Taste is of grass, some spices, some lemonpeel, yeast, and a metallic aftertaste. Fresh and tasty, but not altogether anything too memorable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

a. Nice golden/orange color. Not much head, 1 finger in a tulip glass.

s. Not Pale Ale like. Breads, some slight citrus, malt.

t. Nothing pale here. This is more like a lager. Not much spice, which was on the label. Pretty straight forward beer.

m. This is velvet in the mouth. Not a lot of carbonation, but something silky smooth about it.

o. On the very good side of good, slightly. would revisit, might not seek out.

12oz bottle in a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear, golden color, maybe a touch darker than true golden, generous white foam.

Aroma: Slightly malty, maybe some toast.

Taste: Bitter, with something of a sulfur flavor. Tastes like a full-bodied lager

Mouthfeel: Easy drinker.

Overall: Nothing special.

Picked up this one as a single. Drinking on 5/24/14 with a best by 8/14/14 date so it seems very fresh I would guess.

Has an yellow/orange color with 1 finger head, but it holds well and retains.

Smell of some bread and hop.

This is a very run of the mill and ordinary crafted American pale ale that you can find a dime a dozen around the US. Its decent and well made but very generic. If offered take one. If a bar has it on tap vs BMC its a fine choice. Just nothing at all to separate this one from the pack.
