Perfectly clear amber ale, topped with a flat white head of decent size and OK retention. Wide fields of lacing.

Lovely aroma, focusing on bitterness, caramel and pale malts, a hint of bubblegum yeast, and floral hops.

Flavor follows, with a balancing act among floral hops, yeast, caramel malt, and pale malt. Sweetness just a hair shy of a Belgian pale ale, with the bitterness of an extra or English pale ale.

Very balanced and drinkable; bitter, lively, with a semi-dry finish.

This is an extremely drinkable beer. Nothing stands out as amazing, but it's damn good overall.

Brown, smooth and malty which fades to bitter and dryness.

A decent pale ale. Decent seems to describe most of this beers characteristics, not bad but nothing special in the realm of craft beers. Off white head with a light golden amber color. Light malty sweetness, subtle hoppy bite up front with a subtle piney in the aftertaste.
