Poured into a SK can glass. Clear amber color, topped with an inch or so of frothy white head that soon sank to a wispy layer of bubbles; minor lacing. Bland aroma, malts and dried citrus pith, toasted grains. Taste was light, mildly bitter, floral and earthy notes, with a little citrus pith, off-balanced by toasty grains and sweet malts. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation. Decent, but really no hero among the multitude of pale ales out there. I'm not really interested in trying it again.

From a 16 oz can into a nonic.

A-A normal pour produces almost two fingers of eggshell-colored foam. Retention is decent at nearly two minutes, but lacing is spotty. The beer is nearly clear with just a slight chill haze. Color is orange-golden.

S-The smell is a pleasant, but mundane, mixture of slightly grassy and citrusy hops, on the one hand, and toasty/biscuity malts, on the other hand. As the beer warms, I smell a bit more light fruit.

T-The taste is similar to the smell with light citrus and grassy notes balancing against mild malt flavors of biscuit and white-bread crust. The beer is on the dryer side of things, but a bit of sweet fruit creeps in every now and again. The whole package is smooth but a bit, uh, boring.

M-The feel is medium to lighter in body with an average level of carbonation. Very drinkable.

O-This beer is a good looker and drinks pretty well, but the smell and taste are a little underwhelming. It is not that the beer tastes or smells bad, but it is a bit boring. I could use a little more hops to liven things up or some malt to add depth and character. I won't go searching this out again, but I would drink another if somebody had one laying around.
