A: Poured from the bottle into a Piraat tulip/snifter-type glass. Body is hazy golden with a 1-finger bubbly white head that leaves behind plenty of lace.

S: Bready malt and a touch of floral hops. Not much of a pale ale nose, to be honest.

T: First impression is that it's a bit thin and watery, which goes more to the feel than the taste. As for the flavor: grainy and straw-like malt is followed by citrus zest and some lemony bitterness at the finish. Lingering light, dry bitterness provides for a clean feel.

M: As noted above, it's a bit thin and watery. Carbonation is good, however.

O: Torn between a 3.5 and 3.75 here. As an APA it'd get the 3.5. Considering that it's advertised as an "Extra Pale Ale," however, I'll cut it some slack. Drinks in some ways more like a Session IPA.

Darker golden pale dark yellow color.
Grassiness and fresh smell.
Bready taste with some spice turning over in the end, real light taste for the color.
Unique but dull and off-putting in the end

Opening the can and you are hit with an herbal, wet evergreen aroma - earthy but interesting. Wasn't planning to use a glass but the aroma compelled me to investigate further.

The golden/amber hue and the creamy white head with ample carbonation set a nice stage.

Bright but goes straight away and stays bitter in a one dimensional way.

Feel was fine but did linger a bit.

Overall worth having but not often. Not sure if the high % of certified organic ingredients takes the edge off it or it is actually more accurate flavors but it would take some palate recalibration.

This beer pours a hazy dark straw with a nice head. The aroma leads with lighter fruits, tangerine, grapefruit, and unripe pear. The flavor is mostly crackery malts with a background and very mild hop presence. The mouthfeel is very fizzy and slightly astringent. Overall this as almost an English style pale ale, with a very strong malt characters, where the hops act merely as seasoning. Not quite what I am digging, but still a very nice, sessionable beer.
