Amber with an etched white surface and excellent clarity. No lace. Smells herbal with a slight resin character and a bit of canned spinach alongside the crystal malt which is sweet but not overplayed. Slightly bitter with a good moderated malt through the center and a fine overall pale character. Nice and limited body with slightly low carb and an off dry finish. Nice beer.

Very mediocre, yet very sessionable pale ale here. Pours to medium amber with exceptional clarity. Nice fruity-herbal smell with minimal alcohol. Taste is clean and crisp - this would be an excellent, not-heavy amber for a hot summer evening. It's just another beer, but if the price is right, I'll pick it up again...
