Pours a clear, with lots of very tiny floaters, deep gold/pale amber, producing 2 fingers of somewhat lasting, slightly beige, frothy head that leaves motes & webs of lace. Aroma delicate sweet malty caramel,honey hints, floral/herbal hops with faint citrus hops & a faint mustiness. Taste is robust compared to the nose. Toast dominant & biscuit malt, caramel, with herbal, bitter citrus & grassy hop profile that provides a hop balance & bitterness. Finishes dry & quite bitter for the style. Producing a lingering caramel, toast & dominant citrus peel bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, lightly astringent with a pronounced prickly pepper bite in the finish that rides into the aftertaste. The most sandpapery Pale Ale in my memory.

Appearance: Solid gold with excellent suspended yeast in the midst of the carbonation.

Smell: Sweet honey and wet hay.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Malted biscuit and a slightly watery/slick finish. Very tame, but rather refreshing for an ale.

Overall Drinkability: A refreshing if not great ale.
