look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Sample is dated May 12/14, so I am grading on a curve. This tastes good old, so it stands to have been much better fresh.

Pours to a creamy white head that falls to a thin film and fine lacing. Orange amber color. Aroma is light crystal malts and citrus/spicy/piney hops. Flavor is malty and balanced with a biscuity finish. Mouthfeel is medium-light. Overall a good pale ale that held up to a six month layover at room temperature in an Oklahoma liquor store.

Very smooth and balanced...not overly hoppy. Very good, very smooth, and easy to drink (and easy to drink more than one).
