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

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down rather quickly but left a web of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with notes of caramelized malts.
T: The taste generally follows the smell, except that the malts are a little more prominent and lend slight hints of sweetness. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This pale ale is very easy to drink and has a good balance between the malts and hops. I would have no problem drinking several of these bottles in one sitting.

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

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass - 6/13

Pours hazy light copper, light to dark, white sticky foam. Laces. Light bready malt nose with some faint pine/grassy hints. Juicy taste, light fruit. Smooth, malty. Mild hop close. Some bitter, some sweet. Nice.

Poured out a clear medium amber with a very short lasting white head. A hint of lacing hangs on. There is a mild aroma, slight pine and earthy hops playing off the equally light malt sweetness. The taste is quite close to the aroma with just a little more oomph where it matters. Very crisp on the finish. An above average APA.

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

A: Copper orange, moderate carbonation, 3 fingers of off white foamy head with random lacing.

S: Pine, citrus, orange candy, hard candy, mango.

T: Light sweetness, light red pepper without the heat, citrus candy, fruit loops from the middle through the finish.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

O: Well done pale ale. I've seen it on the shelves of supermarkets so much in North Carolina, I've given it a miss until now. Worth a try.
