Light honey slight haze finger of White fluff settles to film good lace. Lemony citrus and toasted bread. Lemon tea and slight herbal hops. Little bubbles, light plus body very drinkable. Tasty beer that I would certainly have again. Walks a fine line between its components, well-balanced and refreshing.

Poured from a bottle into a nonic glass. There was no bottled date or drink by date but based on the taste and smell it did not seem to be out of date.

Poured a cloudy orange/yellowish color. Did not notice any aromas that would be deemed bad or good. Taste was nice. Subtle hop/bitterness balance.

Overall, a very drinkable beer. Will be adding this to my "to buy again" list.

Poured a hazy pale gold little head, but nice lacing on the sides. Maybe mango on the nose, taste very citrus-y and mango. Minimal carbonation and slightly dry in the end. Solid pale ale.
