look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
A: Pours a lightly-to-moderately hazy vibrant golden color with a hint of orange and 1 finger of bubbly off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring.
S: Fresh and clean hop character with a hint of citrus, peaches, and stone fruit. Very light but perceptible pine character providing a slight spice. Malt sweetness and just a hint of alcohol.
T/M: Mouthfeel is thin to medium with moderate slightly astringent carbonation. Carbonation doesn't foam the beer up so much as dry the mouth and provide a slightly acidic burn to complement the citrus of the beer. Flavor is clean and unassuming up front into a citrus hop note accompanied by a mild malt sweetness. Finish is juicy citrus alongside the malt sweetness into a coating dryness and very mild bitterness.
O: Very, very drinkable. The mouthfeel on the finish really keeps you sipping on this one. This is much closer to a pilsener than many of the pale ales that I have typically enjoyed the most, but the malt profile is also much less wheaty and prominent than the pale ales I have enjoyed the least. This finds a unique space and nice balance for itself, and is really a nice beer. I'd probably not seek this out specifically in trade, but would absolutely purchase it as an everyday sort of beer if it were readily available.
