3.58/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12oz can courtesy of Grfilwett as a great extra in a recent trade. Poured into an Idle Hands tulip.
A - When they say extra pale...they mean extra pale. Pours an almost Bud Light pale golden color in the glass with excellent clarity and capped by a short finger of fluffy white head. Lots of sticky, webby lacing is left on the glass.
S - Hops are very tropical fruity in aroma with a side dose of citrus - pineapple, mango, grapefruit. Really thick in hop aroma. Barely any malt makes it past the hops. Only a light earthy and somewhat dry and biscuit malt peeks thru.
T - Slightly tart, tons of tropical fruit, crisply bitter, earthy. Hops come across as a bit sweaty and dirty.
M - Quite thin in body, almost but not quite watery in feel. Carbonation is medium and quite prickly/tingly.
O - Overall, not a bad pale ale. Lots of tropical hop flavor. Body is bit too thin for my tastes. This would be a great hot weather session beer. It has an overall lightness to it and it goes down super fast and easy. Would be easy to put away a lot of these by the pool.

This is a very enjoyable beer. Not outstanding, but easy to drink and very refreshing.
Appearance: 1" white, foamy head. Beautiful, clear golden yellow.
Smell: Limes, somewhat like the first smell of a Corona after adding the lime. There is a bready aroma that also comes through
Taste: Again, the Lemon/Lime taste comes through, making this a very refreshing brew
Mouthfeel: The right amount of carbonation, and very smooth over the tongue
Overall: Very enjoyable. I can drink a few of these. One of those beers that the sum of the parts is greater than any of the individual components
