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.

Draft: Poured a light copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light fruity ester with some light dry caramel malt with a dry floral hops presence that is also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by dry caramel malt with a dry and slightly bitter hops presence. Body is pretty full for style with good carbonation. Well brewed for the style.
