Classic well-done beer. Pour almost amber gold. Off white head with good soapy retention and lacing. Great carbonation and clarity. Cascade profil provides subtle bitterness and let’s the malt come through a bit. Slightly herby, bright, and piney, but all in a subtle and well- balanced way.

A classic brew, this pale ale is the perfect beer for newcomers to the craft beer scene. While light and refreshing, it also has just enough hop profile to make it worthwhile. There are certainly many better pale ales out there, but this will always beer a familiar favorite.
