3.5/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4.5

Small fluffy head witch didn't last long. Has a nice amber color. Not much of an aroma coming off the beer. Has a nice citrus flavor with a very light hops taste (almost none). The mouth feel leaves something to be desired though. It was very light in body, and has an almost slimy feel going down. As far as a Pale Ale I see this beer a very week one. It does have a good citrus taste working for it and I little tingle for after, but oddly no real after taste.
Pro: I see this as a good weekday beer that you can chug away at, with not a bad flavor.
Con: Has a great lack of full body.
