Hazy copper colored beer with a foamy off white head that leaves gobs of lacing. Smells like caramel, malt and some pine. The taste is caramel with bitter pine and a nice sweetness. Pretty nice beer.

A: The beer is somewhat hazy light amber in color and has some yeast particles floating in suspension near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down a bit but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of caramel and toffee malts are present in the nose along with notes of citrusy hops and fruity yeast.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light flavors of caramel and toffee malts. No bitterness is present, but there are enough underlying hops to mask any sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. No bitterness is perceptible.
O: This beer seems to taste more like an English Pale Ale than an American Pale Ale because the hops aren't very prominent in the smell or taste.

Nice pale ale. Malty without being sweet. Perfect hop balance with excellent flavor. No overpowering aroma like some. Crystal malt is noticeable yet blends into hops on the tongue. I like this beer.

12 oz can. Pours clear light amber orange, little to no head. Very faint aroma, not much there. Sweet caramel malt taste mostly and some grassy hops. Light bodied. Overall ok if looking for malt forward light pale ale, but did not care for the hop character.

Citrus, Resin, Gummy, Level

Very palatable, both malt and hops play very well together. Citrus hoppy flavor has a soft bitterness throughout, pithy. Toasted bread, fruity, fresh grassy hop finish. A little vegtal with a faint kiss of alcohol. While not one attribute really stands outs it is a full on Pale Ale without getting bashed with hops. Job well done guys!!

Crisp and refreshing taste. Prominent hop taste, but not overly hoppy. Great taste.
