look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance – This pale ale pours a beautiful copper color with a thick head that quickly dies down. The head that is retaing is thin but leave a little lacing on the glass.

Smell – A little sweet malt smell dominates at first until the citrus and pine of the hops shine through.

Taste - A good balance of hops and malt. There is a definite caramel note that shines through the moderate hop flavors.

Mouthfeel – The balance of the malts and hops play well on the tuonge with the carbonation pushing the hops towards the end.

Overall – KBC’s mottos is to turn the average beer drinker into a craft brew drinker. This is an excellent step from Pick Axe Blonde and Lift Bridge Brown into a excellent example of a pale ale. This is a solid pale ale that does not take a back seat to other pale ales.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- big 2 fingers of light beige head that dissipates slowly, good amount of swirling carbonation, light amber

Smell- Decent amount of floral hops with some light toffee sweetness, some breadiness as well with a bit of grain, not much in terms of bite to the hops

Taste- The front is light and sweet while the mid-mouth holds most of the flavor, grains and some slight hop bitter on the back

Mouthfeel- light/medium, not as heavy as an amber but not as light as a pilsner, halfway between water and milk, seems about right

Overall- this is a pale ale, plain and simple, it does the trick as a beer you can have after some strenuous work and most definitely sessionable. I'd get another 6-pack.
