Pours bright golden with thousands of bubbles. Sort of looks like ginger ale in appearance. Frothy white head dissipates leaving a thin white film on the beer. Bubbles eventually settle down leaving a clear crisp appearance.

Smell is light and delicate. Floral hops, honey, some mild citrus. Malt notes also peak through. Very simple, but appropriate for the style.

Taste is a well balanced mix of malt and hop. Initially some pale malt flavors up front with a nice floral almost grassy hop bitterness coming through to the finish. Some slight sweetness reminiscent of honey. This is a classic english pale ale. Simple and balanced yet flavorful.

Feel is light, crisp and drinkable.

Overall a very nice example for the style. When fresh this is a great and drinkable beer.

Meh this one was ok. The carb was a bit off and it almost gushed on my counter. The smell was super malty and the flavor was similar with subtle notes of hops.

Pleasantly bitter and hoppy and thoroughly drinkable; a style I can totally appreciate when it's mild and drinkable and this certainly is. Not burdened by an abundance of excessive hops and palette-assaulting flavor and winds up being delicious; would love to see this canned like the current "series" offerings because if it stay sin bombers, even for the great price of $4.99, it'll keep getting overlooked.

Pours clear, gold in color, with 1/4 inch head and high carbonation. Taste is wheat with light citrus hops and a touch of grapefruit. Super smooth beer that is very tasty. May be one of my favorite English pale ales. Certainly one of the better non-barrel aged beers I have had from Revolution. Perfect warm weather sipper.

On tap at Friemdly Toast. Pretty solid lager - little dull, but only 5% so a good pre driving drink. That sounds like a good advertisement

Very nice pour, just had a 16oz at Barrett's Alehouse in North Attleboro. It was a nice beer that wasn't very strong.
