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.

Pours dark straw with a mild haze. One finger head that leaves an initial ring of lace and then spots thereafter.

The smell starts with an old beer line, stale nose. I then pick up light berry and spicy (like oregano) hop. Overall the aroma is okay but the initial whiff is definitely off.

This starts with an exclusively pale malt flavor. The hop is more biting than the smell suggests. The bitterness lingers almost like a hot sauce. After the initial sip, it's hard to detect the pale malt flavor. The body is predictable for the style. The carbonation leans ever so slightly to the bubbly side.

Served in a pint glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow orange color with greatclarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Herbal, grassy, lemon, lime, chewy, and pale malts.

Taste: Nice hop flavor with balancing malt backbone. Easy to drink and traditional to the style. Tasty, balanced, and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing, medium carbonation, light chewy notes, and light bitterness.

Overall: Pretty popular beer tonight. Now I see why. Light and tasty. Will look forward to more of this in the future.
