3.54/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: light golden hue with a dash of haze and a lazy effervescence. Head is a thin finger of frothy white foam; not too bad!

Smell: grainy malt with a dash of sweetness and a bit of hop character. It's OK.

Taste: like the aroma, quite grainy with a bit of sweet malt and a light dose of earthy, perhaps noble hops. Bitterness starts off slow but grows on the palate. It's decent, but doesn't blow me away.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: the cumulative bitterness is a bit harsh on this one, which negatively impacts drinkability. That said, if that type of thing doesn't bother you, then this might be a perfectly decent pale ale for you.

Pours golden orange with a creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet and juicy orange, some tea, and biscuit. Not a "big" aroma but it definitely entices me. Flavor is bready, tea, orange peal and pine. Moderate bitterness for the style. Medium bodied, active mouthfeel. Overall, a really nice sessionable, every-day pale ale. Will drink again.
