The blue dog had this on tap and not knowing much about decided to give it a whorl. Low gas pale ale to me sounds like some attempt at a light beer.
I got a lighter looking ale, golden amber with a small head. Some desent carbonation and minimal lacing. Making this beer look pretty boring.
Aroma has a touch of floral hops. Pale malts round out the aroma. All in all the aroma is lean but fresh smelling.
Taste was a bit lean. There was some floral hops like in the nose and some pale malts, maybe even slightly bready. It finishes slightly dry and washed out. Basically tasteless.
Between this and all day IPA I'd drink all day all day.

On tap at Blue Dog, said this was never available in PA before, I'm guessing this is new.

A - golden straw color with evident carbonation. Tiny bits of lacing left in the glass.

S - Pale malt evidenced in the nose. Slight piney and resinous aroma. Pretty floral for a pale ale also.

T - Slight bitter bite, with a grassy hop taste. Pale cracked malts balance this out. A bit of lemony zest in here, and some more herbal notes.

M - Light bodies and crisp with high carbonation. Very easy drinking, abv can't be more than 4.5 abv.

O - Refreshing and crisp pale. Want to see how this compares to the all day, this is highly quaffable.
