From notes 10/26/13: Pours a clear deep gold/pale amber producing 2 fingers of slightly off-white, frothy head that leaves a pasty wash of patchy, streaky lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, floral, pine with a citrus and apricot/peach hint. Taste is caramel, bread and a nice blend of pine and citrus. All sweetness departs in the finish becoming more bitter than sweet, with mineral and floral/herbal hints in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation, a little pepper spice in the finish and a slight astringency in the aftertaste.

Pours a pale yellow almost clear with an two finger off white head that laces well.

Aroma is cracker like malts with light hops a blend of citrus, grassy and herbal all light and refreshing like.

Taste is a little brighter then the nose bready dry cracker like malts with a better dose of hop bitterness then the nose would indicate. light citrus more lemon lime like with a good dose of grassy/herbal spiciness to the finish. Can see why it was labeled as a pale even though my can says Session IPA.

Mouthfeel is lighter and crisp, easy drinking a great lawnmower beer.

Overall not bad a good light low alcohol brew with descent flavors, even if others might be a touch better this one is good enough to quench your thirst enjoyably.

Overall, this is very similar to Founders All Day IPA Session Ale. This lags a little behind the Founder's product but not by much. It has a great taste, with plenty of happiness and bitter and got to love the low ABV. Just like the Founder's All Day IPA Session Ale, you could drink this all day.

Surprisingly delicious ale that I agree is very sessionable. Nice golden color, decent head with some lingering lacing. Smells of citrus hops, tastes of malt, caramel, wheat and more sweet citrus than herbal or floral hops. Smooth finish, clean mouthfeel, great carbonation throughout. No real bitterness at the finish. I would definitely have more than one of these on a hot day.
