I picked this up as part of a mix a six, enjoyed chilled from a willybecker.
The color is light golden with amber hues and the cap is thick pale cream with tight bead. The smell is nice with some mild citrus zest and slight herbal hop aromas but light in the malt, The hops smell kind of grassy in a good way. The feel is light bodied for the style but crisp and moderately low in bitterness and semi-dry in the finish with no alcohol influence on the palate.
The flavor is gentle at first with some light cracker-like malt which I understand since I read the neck label is a pilsner based pale. The hops have a light citrus tinge with mild bitter herbal flavor, the finish is slightly peppery and dry. Overall I like this and it is good but doesn't really stand out as far as the style goes, but is refreshing and quaffable for a good summer pale and I enjoyed the low abv.

3.81/5 rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Loaf of bread, some pilsner sweetness, toasted, and some herbal, grassy, and citrus hops.
Taste: Same as above with more citrus notes and some bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation. Just the a pale ale is supposed to drink.
Overall: A very simple and straightforward pale ale. Definitely sessionable and can enjoyed multiple times over the course of the day.
