Despite the notable lack of any head, this beer has plenty of webby lace. Solidly amber colored with a significant haze.

Pleasant fresh smelling hop spiciness to the nose. Solid malt base.

Starts with a full pale malt flavor--dry and bready. Strong peppery hop in the mouth. The swallow is dry and bitter. Full mouthfeel with a lower level of carbonation. Overall, this is a very good, albeit quite neutral tasting pale ale.

They have apparently lowered the alcohol content of this selection. While the label in the photo above shows an ABV of 5.7%, the bottle I'm consuming as of this moment shows 5.0%.

It also says "Handcrafted in Ukiah, CA", as opposed to Chico.

Perhaps it is intentional to get down to more of a session type, or maybe its just the change of venue, or?

Anyhow, darn good and refreshing! :)

3.15/5  rDev -13%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

5.5% ABV per label.

Pours a slightly murky honey orange with a 1 inch foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some very mild herbal hop aromas. Taste is of toasted malt and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that doesn't really mesh together all that well in the aroma and flavor.
