Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint. A deep amber color with a two finger off white head. The smell is malt forward with a pleasant, slightly citrus hop aroma. The taste follows suit with a good malty flavor and a slightly bitter clean finish. The whole experience is pleasant if not exactly memorable. It's a good beer that I wouldn't mind drinking again.

Poured into a pint glass.

This ale has a nice mild fruit smell but unfortunately also has a mild mouthful and taste. nothing real special about this beer but if you are looking for something light and easy to drink without a lot going on, then maybe this is a good beer for you.
Probably not get it again...
