Appearance (4.25): Clear light copper color with a two finger off white head. Dark for the style

Smell (4): fruity and piney hops with a light bready malt undertone

Taste (3.75): Piney , light citrus hops and bready malt

Mouthfeel (4): Medium body, bitterness, and carbonation; Crisp and easy drinking

Overall (3.96): This was good if a bit bready/yeasty for a pale ale. I would've preferred more bright fruits on top of the malt. It is a solid pale ale, but i'd grab a handful others before this one on any given night.

Amber-ish in color with a caramel yet fruity aroma. No bitter after-taste but hoppy enough to satisfy the hops fan and mild enough to pacify the "I hate hoppy beer" drinker. Nice in-between brew.
