3/5  rDev -18.7%

Pours a big foamy head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is mild lemon and grain.
The taste starts out a little watery, gets some moderate lemon and grapefruit bitterness and finishes with a mild honey sweetness. Nice and easy profile.
The texture is crisp with soft edges.
Nicely drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Hazy zipper with a foamy white head.

S: Nose is mostly orange, some pine, floral notes and peach in the nose.

T: Pine, floral notes up front, followed by lemon, then orange.

M: Medium bodied and kind of foamy.

O: Really good. The flavor was a bit of a let down after the nose. I was hoping for more peach and orange, but overall this is a very good pale ale.

very honey-orange with little head.
lots of citrus in the first whiff.
really nice taste. first sip is citrus, tiny bit of pine, some bread. a little grass in the back?
slight oil feel, but mostly dry. not very heavy.
very easy to drink; but then, it is a low-abv brew. the sweetness grows after a while. taste is good but I can see the rich and sweet becoming too much after a few.
also, the bottle says to "enjoy fresh" but how can you know it's fresh if there is no production date printed on the bottle??
