3.5/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pure, clear copper color with a bit under 2 fingers of white head. Retention is decent, and a bit of lacing remains.

Smell: Biscuity malts, a hint of citrus and a light amount of piney hops. Pretty standard, nothing special.

Taste: Similar to the smell. I can taste a bit of malt up front, and with some citrus in the middle and some hops on the back end. Nothing really stands out in this beer, but there's nothing bad either.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Light and a bit watery, with decent carbonation. If you're looking for a beer that is sessionable and easy to drink, this would be a good choice. If you're looking for tons of flavor in your pale ale, you'd probably look elsewhere.
