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

Appearance: Looks gold to orange.

Smell: Malty.

Taste: Coriander spice with malty sweetness though seems very simple. Taste almost like or just like some good Belgian tripels. Sweet and simple. A bit too fizzy. Rocks for a pale ale. Reminds me of a good Belgian tripel.

Beer goes with a little rock and roll. Todd Rundgren's Beatlesque 'Deface the Music' would be an excellent complement to this beer.
