Drank from bottle at around 50 degrees 5.0 percent alc,lightly flavored and goes down beautifully easy. One of the finest pale ales i`ve tried to date. nice very light carbonation, and nothing bitter about it, its got a nice slight malt taste to it. Definatly a nice smooth summer drink, could easily kill a couple of these on a day. this brew is of great quality and I highly recomend it.

Poured a clear copper color from a 12 oz bottle. No freshness date or ABV on the label.
One finger head that dissipates fairly quickly.
Aroma is all malts with hint of grain coming through.
Very good lacing all along the insides of the glass.
Taste is also dominated by malts with hints of hop bitterness in the finish. There is a distinct sweetness upfront.
A very good sessions beer, crisp and refreshing with high drinkability. Perfect for a hot summers day.
Definitely worth a try.
