look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Light golden yellow body with a thin white head that reduced to a ring and left spotty lace.

S-Rather herbal, floral and grassy. A bit of an odd waxy (as one of my compadre's stated) aroma.

T-Malt sweetness up front with an herbal hoppy bite in the background. Decent but very complex.

M-Medium-light bodied with an excessively smooth and creamy texture. Light lingering hop bitterness.

D-A nice pale ale for the masses. Not enough to wow me but a good session brew for sure.

On tap at Right Brain Brewery on 11/29/08.

A - Clear pale yellow body with patchy white head that deposited modest lacing on the glass. Lots of active carbonation present.

S - Interesting aroma with sweet, wet hay up front that is complimented by an herbal character and a bit of sweetness reminiscent of bubblegum, beeswax and honey. This one is hard to put my finger on, as it has quite a unique aroma.

T - Initial flavor combines a sweet maltiness with a mild herbal character that is not quite medicinal, but certainly complex. There is also an underlying honey sweetness that is present throughout the flavor.

M - Quite creamy, light bodied and slippery on the palate with medium carbonation and a mild hop bite in the finish.

D - This is certainly a quaffable pale ale that is quite light and very smooth.
