Poured a medium copper hue with a half finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured fruity esters and a soft grassy hop.

The taste consisted of round biscuity malts, a flowery hop and moderate fruitiness.

The mouthfeel was light and clean.

Overall an easy drinking standard ale.

Not sure of the style (guessed on pkae ale) but this is made with the Delta Blue hop (new hop available on the market). Had on tap at the brewery. Showed up with a deep amber color and a thin frothy head. Fresh lightly bitter hop smell, not in your face at all. Flavor also is relativeky tame, hoppy but subtle. Not sticky and piny, more soft on the bitter, kind of similar to the ESB I just tried but a bit more bitter. Soft and easy to drink. Finishes pretty cool. Great session beer!

A – light maple body with a creamy, bone white head. Nice lace and retention.

S – Soft and lightly fruity. Peach, green grape. Nice warm malt backdrop. Touch of herbal thyme.

T – Herbal up front with a light white peach and green grape middle. Alpha oils clean out the finish, leaving a balance of semisweet and bitter.

M – Medium/full body for the style, with a great smoothness.

O – An interesting beer. A shade over hopped for a pale ale, but its a solid beer regardless.
