Reviewed from notes taken in Summer 2014:

On-draught @ Oluthuone Kaisla.

HEAD: 1 finger's worth of width. Off-white in colour. Has a nice soft complexion. Nice thickness and frothiness. ~7+ minute head retention. No lacing adheres to the glass' sides as it recedes.

BODY: Clear translucent yellow colour of above average vibrance. Looks more like a pils than a pale ale. Clean and filtered.

AROMA: Pale and helles malts. Floral hop aromatics. A kiss of tropical fruit - mango, maybe?

Clean and fragrant, yet light in terms of intensity.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, undercarbonated, perfumey, spritzy, and soft. Somewhat refreshing.

Not crisp, as the aroma suggested. Not oily, gushed, hot, boozy, astringent, harsh, rough, or scratchy.

Suits the taste okay. The undercarbonation of the beer is a problem.

TASTE: Pale malts, floral hop flavours, grassy hop flavours, maybe even some Saaz hops, barley, and clean helles malts. Balanced but basic. It's a very simple pale ale build. Not a gestalt harmonious whole of a beer.

No overt yeasty notes or off flavours are present, nor is any overt booze.

OVERALL: Middle-of-the-road but drinkable. A pretty hum-ho pale ale. Not unique or special. I wouldn't get it again, but I suppose it's slightly above average.

C+ (3.07) / ABOVE AVERAGE
