Golden pour with medium sized head. Strong carbonation. Strong pine and pretty one dimensional pale ale, without a lot of malt backbone to give it much body. One of my first craft beers back in college, and overall enjoyed this as a cheap craft. Mediocre at best, but worth trying.

A - orangish amber with a thin lacing of white head that fades quickly

S -very malty and bready with some faint citrus notes

T - huge bready malt with some apple-like sweetness; very faint citrusy notes from the hops

M - medium bodied, smooth, well carbonated

This is a malt bomb. It's one-dimensional and ultimately boring. It's drinkable and unoffensive, but I wouldn't have this again.
