This one looks very nice. The beer is clear and golden, with a little layer of yeast falling down towards the end. The head is at least an inch, dense and white, which ends up leaving very nice lacing. A good looking pale ale. The smell is nice. It's very clean, filled with a light sugary, caramelly sweetness, with some crusty bread. The hops are nice, a bit zesty and leafy, but not incredibly robust. Seems nice and a bit better than normal. The taste is nice too. Clean and refreshing. A slightly bready, sweet, and nutty malt comes up, with a layer of slightly herbal hops. The bitterness is low, the hops have a bit of pollen a hint of sweet lime, kind of leafy. It's really nice, but not one that will really wow you. The body is about medium, the carbonation provides a nice rush, but doesn't really sting. I think it's good. The drinkability is very good. I think it's almost as good as it gets as far as a drinkable beer. This could make a very pleasant night of drinking. It doesn't overdo it on bitterness or resins, a nice smooth, slightly sweet malt body. I would probably buy it again.

Bottled 5/29/13. So over a year old, should probably not review this, but it was surprisingly good! Purchased as part of a mixed six at Liquor Outlet Wine Cellars in Boonton New Jersey on June 25th 2014.
Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Tree House tulip.
a: Slightly hazy amber with a finger thick white head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Bready malt and slight fruit.
t: Moderate bready malt under a medium hop bite. Bitterness lingers at first but mellows later. Sweet to dry finish
m; Medium with very good body and smoothness. Some carbonation tingle.
o: A surprisingly tasty Pale, well balanced and satisfying. Very sippable. One of the best American style pale ales I have had. Perhaps aging this actually helps it.
