A-clouy golden orange with a thin white head

S-smells like a super fresh pale ale, almost like a fresh mountain rain. English malts. Faint scent.

T-comes in with a crisp taste of aged grass and English barley. It has a decent bitterness as well. It really fills the mouth with flavor but is still quite mellow. After-taste is matching with a sticky bitterness.

M-great heavy creamy carbonation with a dry finish

O-one of the more easy drinking English pales I've had, and it's so fresh tasting. Something I could drink a lot of, but considering this is at the DFH alehouse...it's quite dull compared to what else is available.

Had on tap at Fairfax DFH brew pub. Pours light gold with quickly disappating head. Really enjoyed the light and fruity aspects of this beer. Worth seeking out.
