Drank on tap in a 16oz pint glass.

Appearance: very light brown/yellowy appearance. It was much lighter than other pale ales i have had before. It yielded a decent 1 finger head that dissapated quickly.

Smell: Very tight on the nose, aromas of hops came through but not overpowering. Lemon scents and a little bit of grass came through as well.

Taste: Very nice hops taste thats not overwhelming at all but it also wasnt expected. Sticky sweet hops flavors mixed with lemons and grass.

Mouthfeel: nice medium bodied ale.. what I expected except it could have had a little better carbonation. It was a little flat but it could have been a bad batch or something.

Drinkability: nice beer, i would venture out to try other beers. Comparing to other brew pubs pale ales its a little weak on the wow factor. not special about this beer but nothing to wrong with it either. very drinkable but theres better stuff out there

Pours pale golden amber with no head, medium carbonation. Smells of alcohol and a bit of wheats and hops. Taste is rather bitter from hops and alcohol, there isn't much to balance it out though. I was left with an empty bitter tongue wanting something more. I'd choose another from this brewery again, but not the pale.

An average ale; it presented well; the color and aroma were better than average; I expected a full robust ale; hoqwever, the hop finish was mild (I expected more) and the mouthfeel was thin; overall, it better than some, worse than other; the balance of this ale was lacking
