Clear amber with one finger of white head. Lats about ten minutes and leave a good amount of fine bubble lace.
Smell is bready malts with some resinous hops.
Taste is lightly resinous hops with a good amount of malt balance.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with god carbonation. Finish is lightly dry and mildly bitter.
Overall a fine Pale Ale.

The beer is clear and deep gold color. The beer pours a nice white head. The beer has some fairly strong sweet honey notes on the nose and taste and light hop orange notes. The malts are definitely stronger than the hops; making it a kind of odd APA. The beer's body is kind of heavy for the style and gives it a smooth feeling that you don't normally find in the beer. A pretty good beer overall if you're talking about an English Pale Ale.

Served on tap into a shaker glass

A- Poured a very clear orange color with streaming carbonation, frothy white head left glass coating lace

S- Very light aroma, getting almost nothing from this other than light brewer's yeast

T- Some citrusy, earthy, and bready notes, but all of the flavor is pretty subdued.

M- Dry, soft carbonation, medium body, pretty smooth

O- Overall a pretty plain bee, nothing more and nothing less.
