3.42/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a brilliant deep golden with a one inch foamy cream head that quickly dissipates, leaving spotty lacing.

Aroma is fairly grainy and slightly metallic, with hints of floral hops.

Flavor reveals more floral hop character upfront, supported by grainy and slightly toasted malt. There's an underlying herbal quality and a bit of citrus. Mint emerges as it warms.

Body is on the light side, with substantial carbonation and a carbonic bite.

Fairly nondescript, easy drinking beer. They reached their goal.

3.36/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Clear amber colored ale with a small white colored head.

Smell is toasted grain and cracker malt with a mild NW hop aroma. Hop scent of grapefruit and cedar chest and a slight eucalyptus scent.

Starts out mild with mild sweetness and a lagerish hop after taste. Wheat biscuit with a mild floral hop taste. Mild bitterness this is very easy to drink. Hop is mostly woody with some floral elements.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall and easy to drink ale, very tame.

(on tap at Moriarty's in Philly, 3/22)

Never heard of this one before. Thought I'd give it a shot - was looking for something light to start my night off with.

It comes out looking like a macro lager, perhaps aside from the texture and formation of its bright-white head, which has a bit of a rocky/ripped-up cotton ball look - not much retention, minimal lace. The liquid itself is very pale, grainy golden, filtered clean.

Not much of a scent factor. Cereal-grassy mostly, some faint floral hop in the back.

What I liked about the taste was its very exposed pale malt flavor - husks and all. Quite dried-grassy, but stupid mellow. A bit surprised to catch some hops a few sips in. Bit of a lemon-peel quality to it - flavor and bitterness. Together, the hops and malt are in nice balance, however, the overall flavor is extremely mellow, nearly tasteless.

The worst thing about the beer is the sharp, astringent shock that you can feel approaching as you put your lips to the glass. It just zaps the lips and pricks the back of the tongue with each sip. Reminded me of citric acid. The beer was designed to have a very delicate, almost non-existent body, which could've been enjoyed more for what it was had it not been for that pestering pop on the palate.

This is most certainly one of the lightest all-around American-style pale ales I've had. Served ice cold, it could give the big guys a run for their money. Stacked against the gamut of great pale ales available, this is quite lame.
