A solid brew no doubt, but not fantastic. It's color, lacing and head were all proper, so it's appearance was good.

It smelled so strongly of hops, I was expecting a smack in the face in the flavor, instead i got more of a tickle. Neither the hops or the malts were simply strong enough. Their flavors were well balanced, and tastey, but combined they didn't add to an amazing beer. It's decent, and I'd drink it again, but there are much bolder pale ales.

I like this beer although I admit there's nothing that special about it. Flavors are fruity and ever so slightly grainy. Mouthfeel is smooth, maybe a little on the oily side but not at all unpleasant. Easy to drink with a slight taste of sweetness. Very little hops, and hard to pick up any malts at all. Decent easy drinking beer.
