3.68/5 rDev -2.1%
Surprisingly bright shade of golden yellow out of the bottle with a smallish white head. Aroma is sweetish and malty, with light noble hops and fruity esters - think apple juice and wet grass. However, the flavor is unexpected departure from the aroma. The sweetness and fruity yeast are nowhere to be found. Instead, this a dryish, malty, yet bitter pale ale, a lot closer to what many pale ales used to be 10 years ago. Body and carbonation are somewhere in the middle and seem to go fine with a dry and lengthy bitter finish.
I enjoyed the beer and the recollection of what pales were like before the hop craze began. Nothing particularly noteworthy about it, yet a well-made pale.

Pours a light yellow, hazy-colored liquid. Very similar to hefe in appearance. Minimal and quickly dissipating head.
Smell is a mix of cut grass, lemon, orange peel, and floral essences. Interesting.
Taste is full of light maltiness, orange, lemon, and a bit of funk. Not the most full flavor, but not bad.
Pretty crisp and light in the mouth. Strong citrus presence.
On the whole, this is an okay beer. Not terribly earth-shattering; not bad either. Probably would be a good beer to sip on a warm day due to its light body and citrus flavors.

This beer looks awesome. This beer smells great. This beer tastes very nice. The hop tones seem to mesh well with all of the other beer characteristics in a way that create an awesome drinking experience for me. I don't know if I got a very fresh bottle or what, but who cares. I'd love to try this on cask or as a draft.
