Served on tap at the Galway Arms in Chicago in a shaker pint.
Pours a nice copper color, slight chill haze, hues of orange and brown, medium amber with a 1 finger white head that has moderate retention and leaves behind wonderful rings of soapy lace throughout the session. Aroma is of rich and smooth caramel malt, fairly sweet, light piney hops with a faint bit of citrus comes out as well, nothing special here. The flavors are similar, lots of sweet caramel malt, light hops, citrus, a bit of earthy pine and grassy flavors come out as well. The body is fairly thin, a bit watery, finishes light dry but definitely lacking any punch.
Verdict: At best, this is a decent pale ale. It's fairly refreshing at times, but compared to many other pale ales out there, this just doesn't stack up.
Serving type: on-tap
