A very pale ale with a solid malt backbone with evergreen and citrusy undertones and a boozy finish. Big head that diminishes quickly.
Very balanced and quite delicious.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-murky pale amber color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Some stringy lace ran here and there.
The aroma had some biscuit clean malts, some sweetness and muted dried citrusy hops.
The flavor was moderately sweet with a drying hoppiness underneath. Bitterness seemed fairly displaced and it had a biscuit-like aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Finish leaned into the malts.
Overall, almost seemed like a cross between an English and an American pale ale. Maybe again.

Bottle: Poured a dirty amber color ale with a large excessive foamy head with average retention and not much lacing. Aroma of dry caramel malt with fruity ester is OK. Taste is a messy mix of dry caramel malt with some fruity ester and light herbal hops with quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is full with excessive carbonation. I’m not even sure what to make of this beer but not something I will need to re-visit anytime soon.

More malt than hop. Almost a pale amber. Many will like this beer for its obvious lack of hops in both the nose and on the palatemaybr this beer should be reclassified.
