look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours a light straw color with about 2 fingers of off white head. The head dissipates pretty quickly.

S - There's a little bit of fruitiness in the nose, but not a ton. There's a bit of bitterness in the smell as well. There's an odd muskiness to it, which I don't think is a result of age. It's slightly off-putting.

T - Much like the smell, the taste is... slightly odd. There's the hint of fruitiness with the bitterness. However, the muskiness or funkiness is still present.

M - The mouthfeel is the closest this beer has to a saving grace, honestly. The mouthfeel is pretty creamy, the carbonation seems spot on.

Overall, this is a disappointing beer. The smell and taste have odd characteristics and the mouthfeel and appearance don't have what it takes to make up for it.

3.14/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Honey color with a weak head. Very nondescript on the nose. Mild hop fruitiness, and a mild bitter finish. Not much in the way of malt, and really no strong flavors I could pull from it. A very average beer with not much originality....AVERAGE.

Serving type: on-tap

A.. A nice golden hue. Minimal/no head or lace

S.. A typical pale ale

T.. Great tasting ale. Light hops with a good amount of malt (good for the type of brew). A little sweetness

M.. Easy drinking beer. Minimal carbonation, could be a session beer

O.. Very good pale ale. On tap or in the can it's worth the time

Can from trade. No datw. Big thanks for a tall can! Pours hazy orange with a one finger white head and lots of lacing. Floral hop aroma with some grass and light malts in the background. Flavor is a nice combination of floral notes and grapefruit with some toffee coming from the malts in the background. Some dry cracker flavor here and a little on the light side. Somewhat slick mouthfeel with adequate bitter and a relatively smooth finish. Nothing special but at the same time very drinkable and nothing wrong with it. Great cookout brew and in a big enough can to last.
