Trying to figure out the label. Pours a slightly hazy golden straw color with a light orange hue throughout. A soft white head that does stay for some time but does not last through the tasting. Limited lacing as well.

The nose is limited overall. Most a malt backing with some hints of grainy notes. A light sugary note but the limited hop aroma makes this soft even for a pale. Some hints of earthy and light citrus hop notes. Very limited though. Really looking for more hops here. Some minor yeast notes as well.

The taste is similar with the malt being stronger then the hops. A sweetness up front with a malty backing and a light grainy taste. More of a two row with some dextrin notes to add depth. Really missing the bitterness and hops. Some minor hints on hops on the back end with a light orange and earthy taste. Some yeasty notes and a light metallic taste but light.

The body is moderate. Would like to see the malt dry out a bit. The carbonation is light as well. Both would help some hops come out. Overall, limited even for pale standards.
