Can from Bert's
Hazy lemon yellow in color with a thin white head that dissipates. Bready light caramel maltiness lemony citrus and light pine. Old school feel, pretty clean and tasty.

12 Oz can poured into glass
Look - Pale yellow color, medium foam head and some lacing on glass
Smell - lemon zest, grass, orange, pine/herbs
Taste - A simple beer but there is a good amount of hop flavor. Hops are earthy with a shot of sweet citrus. Nothing specific really. A little soapy. Carbonation is medium-high and body is medium. Tastes like sweet tarts tbh.

Overall, a clean pale ale that has some decent flavor. It's not piney at all which makes it somewhat unique. I could drink a few of these a week. Grade is a B+

A: crystal clear; pale gold in color; 1 finger finely pored white head that receded to a wispy cap; OK lacing;

S: grassy, smells more like a pilsner than an APA;

T: virtually no flavor; a hint of lemon; moderate bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: odd lack of flavor and the aroma was off for the style;

Not too impressive. No hop aroma, decent body, rather non-memorable, watery. Having trouble filling out a 150 characters for this. Nothing to recommend. That's it!

Picked-up as part of a mixed twelve-pack at Kappy's in Norwell for about fifteen dollars. Have had many brews from these guys before. I enjoyed this, would get again.

From the 12 fl. oz. can dated 12/19/19. Sampled March 13, 2020.

Yellow pour with a chill haze and a modest lacing leaving white head.

The aroma is at first like Saltine crackers or more precisely Graham crackers. Then there is the floral and pine sensation that comes up behind.

The mouthfeel is light to medium but fairly smooth.

There is a cracker and sweet character as I take the first sip. As I sip it some more I pick up more of the floral and pine hope finish. Generally crisp and clean. Nothing special. I miss their Shoal's Pale Ale.
