Clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma has sweet malt, orange, honey, biscuits and some earthy hops on the back end. Taste starts with a very classic, biscuity malt profile, similar to a helles. Some floral hop notes in the middle and the finish is a really nice combination of malt and citrusy hops. Medium to light bodied with crisp carbonation. Overall it's a quite nice, easy drinking pale ale but nothing to go crazy for.

This pale ale had just enough hops up front, but still allowed the malt shine through. Cloudy orange golden body, small head, sticky lacing. Aroma is mostly malt, hops come in at first taste, mild bitter finish. Really nice
