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.

Honey and light hops. A basic pale ale, satisfying but nothing special.

Golden orange in color. Fairly clear in appearance. Nothing really happening in this beer. Subtle nondescript hop flavors. Blah. Why would someone willingly drink this?

Enjoyed this pale ale many times a few years ago while on a business stay in Colonial Williamsburg. It was particularly good with the cheese tray appetizer!

Light honey gold with a white head. Faint hops in the nose.

Sweet malt with nuanced hop notes of pine, citrus, and spice in the finish. Medium-bodied and easy to drink. Carbonation is appropriate for style. Nice, dry finish. Clean profile.

A tasty pale ale. Local for me. Not too heavy, and not too light in terms of style. I recommend, especially if you can get it relatively fresh in Virginia.

This was a pale ale. It was good. It was not bad. I would drink it again.
