A solid example of a pale ale. Not the best but for the price, you can't beat it. Flavor is very smooth with a decent balance between the hops and sweetness which makes it an easy drinker. The flavor doesn't last long however and lacks a certain depth found in higher quality brews. Certainly a beer to keep on hand for an "anytime" beer.
