This American session ale packs a lot of hop and malt flavor into a refreshingly lower-alcohol brew, making it the perfect beer to have on hand when you have a little history to make.

Pale but not particularly translucent. Lovely lace.

Aromas of resinous pine, then citrus. Then malt body.

Fairly light on the tongue. First a mild but full malt flavor, then a second or so of hops, then a short linger back on the malt.

Refreshing. Not highly alcoholic. Went well with a pepperoni pizza.

Hazy, golden orange with a fizzy, whispy white head.

Resiny, piney, citric, grapefruit hops with a bready caramel malt backbone.

Medium body, fizzy, foamy mild carbonation.

A very well done lower ABV pale ale. The ABV makes it very easy drinking, while still maintaining a tasty, hoppy flavor.
