A Seattle go-to draft when at a bar where you're unable to determine what exactly's on tap but want a micro.

A not-so-hoppy, cloudy, red-orange pale ale that's really quite mild and balanced. Not exactly easy to put away so quickly, but that's probably not the point here.

You can't go wrong.

Poured into ice cold mug - nice start. Nice light amber color and 2 finger head. The taste is very mild, but I like it a lot. Nice malty balance with slight fruitiness, but more hops than I was anticipating. This is a great go to Pale Ale I am seeing more in Oregon (where the selection is generally OR or nothing. Not to heavy on the alcohol. Will have again

Have had this beer plenty of times, but for some reason, haven't reviewed it yet.

A - Pours a hazy golden-amber hue, with a silky smooth single finger off-white head. Leaves a feathery lacing around the glass as it's consumed.

S - Smell is of honey, crackers, citrus fruits, and floral notes.

T - Taste is a well balanced blend of honey-malt sweetness, and "crackery" malt texture overall, with subtle citrus fruits (mostly apricot and grapefruit that I pick up on), and a crisp, floral finish.

M - Body is on the lighter side of medium, but not too light. Moderate carbonation. Very, very sessionable.

O - Overall, this is just a solid, basic go-to pale ale, and a good session beer. I prefer the other offerings from Georgetown, but it's nice to have this one available at virtually every bar in the greater Seattle-Tacoma area.
