Surprisingly, a great pale ale with flavor and just the right amount of hoppiness.

I've had this on draught at few different nj restaurants/pubs and liked it. Finally got 6 pack in local Bergen county liquor store. Was just terrible. No head, tasted like soap. I was so disappointed

A: The beer is crystal clear yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy off white head that took a long time to die down and never completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of pale malts are present in the nose along with some slight hints of citrusy hops.
T: The taste starts out with flavors of biscuit malts; hints of citrus from the hops then become perceptible towards the finish. The hops contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't that difficult to drink, although noting really stands out in the smell or taste to make me want to try this again. It is like a beer that doesn't know its identity—is it an English Pale Ale that wants to highlight its biscuity hops or an American Pale Ale that wants to showcase its citrusy hops? I wasn't sure what this really was and it seemed to have contrasting flavors.
