A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and poured with a finger high white head that died down but consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of citrusy and grassy hops in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of bready and grainy malts and is accompanied by a moderate amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very easy to drink, especially considering its low alcohol content.

On draft at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

Poured a murky light copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a grainy malt and a light piney hop.

The taste consisted of an upfront grainy cereal malt with a lingering grassy hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty and easily quaffable pale ale.

- Free sample at a Chelsea Brewing tasting. Special thanks to Big Z's in Huntington NY -

A - Mildly opaque medium-grade honey. White head sits low.

S - Bright green hops, smooth orange.

T - Raw hop character. Dusty hay. Pine-like bitterness. Not much malt.

M - Light body. Earthy-dry finish.

O - Just ok. Hop character is a tad too raw.
