look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Looks like a macro lager, with a crystal clear golden color and a modest head; nice lacing, though

Smell: The pilsener malt dominates the aroma though there are no hops to be found; a touch of sulfur

Taste: Very husky and grainy, up front and throughout, with just a hint of residual sweetness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Can't say I am much of a fan of this beer; not exactly sure what the brewers are shooting for but I guess it might quench a thirst on a really hot Texas day

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity

A pretty good sized off white head settles into a decent lacing above a clear straw golden colored beer.

A subdued aroma of light grain malts and even lighter hops notes with a light yeastiness.

A light almost sour grain taste with some light bitterness from the hops sneaking in.

A light dryish aftertaste with some hops notes on this light bodied beer.

Pretty disappointed in this beer, it seems that they are trying to make a mass market lager with a craft beer price tag.

Thanks for sharing, Bobby.

A: The beer pours a clear, light golden color with a finger of white head.

S: A nice floral hop character to it along with some mild citrus, especially citrus peel. There are some sweet malt notes as well as just a little bit of yeast and biscuit malts.

T: Biscuity malts with a nice sweet bread not to it. Some floral hops along with citrus peel and a minimal bitterness. Just a little bit of piney hop flavor to it.

M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: Not bad, but not quite as nice as the pils or the IPA.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a soft light yellow color with a fair transparency about it. Some carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. Flimsy white head quickly died off. Not much lace. The aroma had some sweet freshly cut grassy notes, light lemon, some sweet corn. The flavor was sweet through the previously mentioned aromas to arrange as I expected in the aftertaste and finish. The feel was light bodied with a great crushability about it. ABV felt as projected. Overall, pretty nicely done blonde ale.

(I think this should be classified as an American Pale Ale, not an English Pale Mild Ale as it is listed on this site.)

Drank from a can at the The Common Table.

The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of grass and orange citrus hops with a little bit of bread and biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same, with some juicy orange citrus notes coming from the hops. The bitterness is fairly low and the beer is well balanced. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice beer overall.

Clear golden pour with a frothy one finger head and medium carbonation. Aroma is light floral and lemon. Light bodied with a mild flavor composed of floral hops, lemon, grain and malt. Finishes with a slightly bitter, grainy taste.

A: Pours a clear golden/yellow color. A two finger white head rises that is well formed. Lots of spiderweb looking lace is left behind.
S: Toasted grains, crackers, bread. Musky and dank with a slight metallic twang. Not a big fan of the nose.
T: Much better here. Big toasted grains, crackers, and bread again. Grassy and herbal hops with a lingering bitterness. Simple, but very nice.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. A bit on the watery side though. Very easy and enjoyable to drink.

Simple and enjoyable. I like it. Not the big hits like Fire Eagle or Pearl Snap are, but still a well made mild pale ale. Excellent for the summer or just everyday drinking.
