12oz longneck into standard pint served at fridge temp (~45 F) no freshness date.
A: Kind of cloudy golden color with a slight reddish tint. Doesn't seem that pale to me, could be the caramel malt. No head but a decent looking ring and spotty very sparse cap. Looks pretty average.
S: Citrusy hops on the nose and a touch of malt. The malt is very light and the hops drowns out any sweetness that might come through because of the caramel malt. I like citrusy hops smell.
T: Sweeter than expected from the nose with just enough hop bite to balance but no lingering hop bitterness. The slightly sweet malt hits and then a wave of slightly earthy and lemony hops sweeps away the sweetness and it finishes with a twang of bitter that fades very quick. Slightly drying.
M: Medium bodied on the lighter side but that could be due to the temp of the beer. No surprises in this ones mouthfeel.
O: Not remarkable but not at all bad. Balanced drinkable pale ale. Can't say I wouldn't drink it again but would most likely shoot for something a little more impressive when I am buying.
