Pours a clear deep straw/pale gold, producing just over 1.5 fingers of frothy, white, somewhat lasting head that leaves a motes, streaks & webs of lace. Aroma is light but clean cracker malt with notes of grass, apples & New Belgium yeast. Taste more like a thin & fruity Czech pilsner than a Belgian pale ale with cracker/biscuit malt, grass & lemon hints, yeast & white fruit hints in a dry finish that yields a hop bitter aftertaste that is out of character with the style. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied, moderately carbonated, light pepper prickle, smooth & dry.

So, I may be a bit biased because I got twelve packs of this stuff for $9.99 on clearance in early summer of 2014. Didn't expect much but really hit the spot, typical belgo pale flavors nothing stood out but a good warm weather quaff.

07.13.14 Best by date.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 04.10.14.

A: 1 finger head with an aggressive pour. Very light see through yellow.

S: Hops. Some sourness.

T: Lemon and honey dominate. It also has slight malt, some bitter hops.

M: Crisp.

O: This was ok. It was easy to drink and very light. It had a nice balance. There wasn't much else. There are much better Belgian Pale Ales out there.

Rating: C
