THis was ampled at the brewpub. The pour was of a light amber color, small white head topped oit off and carbonation was very low. The nose was lightly hopped, the flavor introduced itself with a sweet maltiness and then the dry hoppy flavor came in as expected. Body is very light but carries a dry and long hoppy finish. This was a very light drinking pale ale.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle purchased at the Appleton WI location. Poured aggressively into pint shaker. Nice 2 finger head at the end of the pour. Nice lacing in the glass. Clear amber color. I did not notice any hop smell but a nice bready smell. it is going down smoothly and is very drinkable. I like the clean, dry finish of this beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. long neck bottle into my frosted pint glass.

Ok well I'm from Oshkosh Wi and this beer is brewed in my city by my employers who I work for at a different restaurant not Fratellos where this is brewed.

Appearance: Nice golden colored amber hue, nicely tinted and a generous lacing sticks to my glass.

Smell: This threw me off it smelt of great hops! I thought this was going to be a doozy like the other great craft ales I've boughten before but it had a wonderful smell indeed.

Taste and Mouthfeel: Ok not great but ok it has a very light bland tasting hop flavour that goes down smooth and crisp almost like the budweiser of pale ales but not as mass produced and has not lost my respect.
