A clear golden-amber body is topped by a full head of frothy white foam that holds quite well and leaves some very nice lace throughout the glass. Yeasty fruitiness and low-level citrusy hop combine to greet you in the nose over a lightly bready maltiness. It's smooth and a touch creamy in the mouth with a very fine and moderate carbonation that's somewhat uncommon for the style. It gently tingles the tongue rather than prickling it; and it doesn't accentuate the bitterness as higher levels of carbonation tend to do. The flavor is clean and straightforward, but also deftly balanced. It's fruitiness, gently sweet biscuity malt, and light notes of delicately citrusy and floral hop play off of one another and form a well-rounded, satisfying, refreshing, and highly drinkable ale. It's not really bitter, but there's enough there that it finishes dry with just a memory of it's citrus-splashed biscuit malt. Quite nice! A great summer beer!

This beer was just tapped for the first time yesterday and gave it a try.Pours a gold/orange color with light but pretty sticky head,the aroma seems a little on the malty side with s light hop lingering.The taste is caramel sweet to begin with a nice dry finish,there is a nice balance to this beer.A pretty enjoyable pale that is pretty darn drinkable.
