Served as part of their beer sampler. This one poured bright and clear. Golden in color with a decent size head (in proportion to the sample glass) and left a small amount of fine lacing. A light maltiness rises from the beer to meet the nose but doesnt give off anything that assertive.
The taste is crisp and smooth with a nice pairing of sweet malt and bitter hops. A light to medium bodied beer that tends to give off some sourness in the finish. Overall this isnt that bad, but I am left looking for more hop character. Just a bit too plain for me, I guess Im just spoiled. Middle of the road at best.
(and that was before I noticed the 50/50 percentage, I swear...)
Serving type: on-tap

3.69/5 rDev +16.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. There was a scant head that fell quickly to a very thin ring of foam.
Aroma: Sweet grapefruit with a definite malt presence.
Taste: There was a faint sour hit at first contact, but the predominant taste was malt with some oranges and maybe bread along with a mild hops presence. The hops lingered along with some of the malty sweetness.
Mouthfeel: The body was on the thin side. The carbonation was appropriate.
Overall: This drinks as a classic American pale ale. It was refreshing and enjoyable; I especially liked the hints of orange in the taste. I don't think I've seen this in my area (southeast Michigan), but if I see it when I'm in the Pittsburgh area, I'd consider getting some.
