Pours a clear golden yellow with a foamy white head with nice retention.

Lightly fruity, floral hop character, with a clean, pale malt backbone.

An easy drinking, well done Pale Ale.

22 oz

Pours a golden body with a creamy white 3/4 inch head .Good lacing

Smell is faint, I can barely detect an earthy smell

An sweet malt start with zesty lemon pepper finish. Tastes like there is more alcohol then 5.6 ABV ?

Feel has a nice pale ale full-crispness

Overall a decent pale ale... The smell wasn't there but the taste was.

From a bomber into a tulip

A: pale golden with a huge 3 finger head that left very good lacing
S: grassy hops, pale malt, some crystal malt...not real strong
T: crackery malt with a touch of caramel sweetness, light grassy bitterness and a little lemon...on paper, almost looks like some pilsners but there is a touch more sweetness and heaviness, and the hops don't quite fit...can especially y get some of the classic cascade, but that seems like it is beyond

12oz can poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours clear yellow golden. Medium pale head, plenty of carbonation. Smell is grassy, hoppy, pleasant, and mild.

Taste is grassy, straw/hay, yeasty. Pretty nice, actually. A little lemon zest.

Mouthfeel is dry and light. Overall, nice pale ale.
