3.38/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance- Pours up only about a finger's worth of head which has some retention but not much. The head is a pure cotton white while the body is a medium amber that glows a light, golden amber when held up to the light. No lacing at the moment.

Nose- Not a lot of presence but enjoyable. Light citrus backed up by honey and caramel. Very well rounded and integrated. Slight tomato note but it works with the other fruit. Some pineapple and melon on the nose. Very smooth.

Taste- Starts with caramel and seems to be riding that for a while as light notes of orange and lemon begin to follow. Tiny bits of grapefruit and matchstick. Slight spice on the finish with a bit of pine and resin. Could use more citrus presence. Is lacking in both presence and complexity. The more I drink it, the thinner it seems to become. Not bad but rather boring at the moment. Dull spice, slight wood and resin on the finish. Swirling revives to a pleasurable state but this is not something one should have to do with a pale ale. Caramel subsides a bit and more orange and grapefruit come out but not enough. Slightly above average beer.

Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with light syrup in the texture. A little too carbonated. Seems to clash with the spice and resin finish.

Drinkability- Definitely easy drinking but more for its lack of notable aspects than for presence of them. Around 8 bucks for a six pack but not really worth it.

Overall- Slightly above average. Didn't do all that much for me. It's worth giving a try but if you don't, you're not missing much.
