3.6/5 rDev +5%
Poured from a bottle into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy, medium caramel amber with nice one finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Mild aroma of caramel malt and lightly piney and grassy hops, slightly vegetal. Flavor is also mild; light grassy, slightly floral hops, sweet bready malt, citrus; finishes with light grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. A light, modestly hopped pale ale that's not trying to break any boundaries. Hop and malt flavors are nicely balanced, but nothing really stands out. Pleasant with a meal, but not one I'd seek out.

3.2/5 rDev -6.7%
A 355ml bottle; BB Oct 2014. Purchased from a B&M store a little while back. This UK import is simply called Point Pale Ale, but the label states that it is brewed with Cascade.
A: Rich amber hue with faint sediment and intense carbonation. Large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a couple of minutes before settling as a surface layer.
S: Aroma of caramel malt with hints of mild pine, grass/hay, subtle spice, earthy yeast and faint stewed leaves. A metallic twang in the background. Subdued.
T: Caramel malt with a restrained hoppy character and a mild bitterness. Mild pine resin, faint weed, grass/hay, a twinge of citrus, spice, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a hoppy bitterness upon swallowing.
M: Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with spritzy carbonation and decent body. Bit too fizzy.
O: It's OK though nowt special. Looks alright, but the aroma is lacklustre. Flavour is a tad better - decent hop/malt balance for a pale ale. So-so body. Goes down alright but not one I'd go out of my way for again.
