look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

1 pint can into an IPA glass

A - Moderate pour produces a 2 finger head that is a mix between creamy and skim milk froth and it is beige in color with just a hint of orange. Head dissipates very slowly to a rocky lacing. Beer itself is clear with a very good deal of carbonation that is visible rising very quickly towards the surface. Liquid is a bright amber in color with a nice glow around the edges. 4/5

S - Aroma is fairly subdued for a pale ale. There is a bit of caramel sweetness acting as the aroma backbone which is paired with a light floral hoppiness that reminds me of rosewater. There are also undertones of yeast, biscuit, and pear. 3.25/5

T - Sweet caramel malt hits the palate straight away and this sweetness lingers from quite some time on the tongue before transitioning to a bit of yeast and buttered biscuit. The hops begin to come out in the middle with a floral note of roses and also a bit of pear, pine, and a very light sweet citrus fruit. Very simple and approachable flavor profile. Very little lingering bitterness. 3.5/5

M - Fairly strong carbonation burn up front and in the middle which transitions to a very light crisp feeling and then to a dryness that lingers moderately on the palate. Somewhat smooth on the back end. Light-medium body throughout. 3.75/5

O - Quite definitely a session pale ale that does not feature a strong aroma in the slightest. Fairly sweet for a pale ale but this does balance out with the light hoppiness of this session ale. Easy drinking pale ale that will quench a thirst for hops without being crazy hopped. 3.5/5

Experienced this fresh from the source, at People's Brewing Company on 8.25.13

This is going to be a new flagship beer for the brewery, and it will be a nice little staple to add for a signature pale ale.

Nothing about it is particularly fantastic, but it is serviceable and a fine addition to their lineup.

Overall a solid pale ale.
