From a bottle into a St. Arnold tulip pint.

Appearance: Poured a rich golden-amber with a thick, creamy, persistent head two finger widths in height. Head was fairly long lasting, some lace left on sides of the glass.

Aroma: A pleasant floral aroma with light, sweet malt accents.

Taste: A mild bitter taste lacking the floral notes in the aroma balanced well by a malt base.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Drinkability: A good beer! The bitterness was not overwhelming but slowed down drinking enough for the beer to be savored. I enjoyed it very much.

P- Thanks to some friends for this beer

A- gold copper color that is quite clear with visions of alcohol in it. half finger head that leaves a water line mark on my pint.

S- grassy hops with hints of citrus. Some toasted malts as well.

F- grassy citrus hop flavor with back end toasted malts. a nice complement but the grassy tone tends to dominate. I would like the citrus to dominate the grassiness.

M- smooth and light bodied. hoppy taste in the mouth.

O- not a bad beer but like I said the grassy dominance tends to take it down a notch for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Citrus, grassy, pungent, pale, and toasted malts.

Taste: You get a nice dose of hop flavor here. Mild bitterness in the rear that compliments the toasted and pale malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, crisp, a little chewy, refreshing, mild bitterness, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice pale ale that I haven't had in a while. Another solid brew from these guys.
