Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a pale yellow color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a good pace, not much lace, but was there seemed to speckle slightly.
The aroma had a nice clean cereal/graininess flowing combining with some breadiness and then some light citrusy hops and pine enter in to fine tune the balance.
The flavor was moderately sweet and bringing in a semi-stabilizing bitterness to end up sliding into the aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt mediocre. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, for the most part, it does the trick, I'd have again if offered.

Great pale yellow color with white head. Not a lot of hop aroma, a bit malty, cereal like aroma. Not aggressively bitter, lower IBU for the style is a welcome change from the face melters. Finishes crisp and a bit dry. Nice change of pace for pale ale.

Nothing special here, a little disappointed, carbonated with a blah taste. The Hardcore Chimera is a buck less and so much better (I know its a diff style, but still).

Deep golden color with a frothy white head. Rich bready caramel maltiness with hints of citrus and pine to counter. A bit on the sweet side for my tastes but decent enough.

Can dated "enjoy by 10/01/15" (that would be tomorrow) into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy pale amber with a modest white head that dissipates rather quickly. Taste is, um, very neutral. Nothing predominates - there is some very subdued grassy hops, but it's offset by some equally subdued bisquity malt. Medium mouthfeel, nice amount of carbonation. Quite refreshing, if somewhat underwhelming. Very sessionable.
