The appearance is golden amber, leaves a nice moderate head. The smell is very little but kind of sweet.

Taste wise, a bit light and high on carbonation. Sweet with a hint of fruits. Kind of bitter however. Aftertaste is okay, not overdone, not to weak.

Overall this is a respectable micro-brewery beer. Would recommend a try, may even get it again.

341ml bottle says, "handcrafted with only 4 ingredients"...too bad none of them seemed to be hops!

anyway, a clear golden pour, small white head which fades down, and fades quite quickly i might add. little to be had in the nose. maybe some bready notes, grain, a hint floral....no hoppiness at all. the taste was very bland, wow, i mean boring. there's was a semi-sweetness here. NO HOPS, NO MALTS. seriously, if i didn't open the bottle myself, you could have told me this was a Molson or Labatt macro product. a bit of tang on the finish. a fizzy mouthfeel that flattens out quickly, leaving much to be desired. it's almost as if this beer disappears more and more with every sip. very poor drinkability. when i hear Pale Ale i expect the hops to be even mildy kicked up. and no malt backbone here.

this to me, was as good as a shitty mass macro. not impressed.

This is a very light offering with a 5%ABV.
Poured a brilliant pale yellow with a short brushcut then quickly bald, very limited ring or lace.
One single strand of carbonation to distinquish from apple juice.
Aroma is non distinct...maybe light of paper.
Body is thin,watery.
The taste is short and to the hops to begin with a light shift to the malts to end. Well balanced but not a true pale ale.
Needs work.

Very clear and light, more gold than amber, with a bright white head. Sheets of lace were left behind and head retention was quite good. The aroma is on the light side, but there's a bit of toasted malt with mild caramel and a hint of fruity esters. The flavour was quite mild, with thin biscuity malt and a whisper of fruit. Hop bitterness was definitely on the low side, but became sharp and harsh with an herbal quality in the finish. Thin body, off-dry. I'd take this over a macro lager any time, even with its faults.
