Look: Translucent ruby amber with a moderate eggshell colored head. Mild activity.

Smell: Sweet bready malt. Notes of light molasses, whole grain crust, apricot, piney hops, and light citrus. Sticky on the nose.

Taste: Light citrus and light caramel on the attack. A body of bready malt and balancing piney hops moves forward to then slowly fade to a finish of prickly marmalade smother bread crust and light grapefruit zest.

Feel: Sticky and quenching. Light plus body. Mild plus bitterness. Prickly carbonation. No alcohol. Semi dry finish.

Overall: An excellent American style pale ale. The hops might be a tad aggressive but the malt is there to balance everything as the beer runs its course. It’s refreshing while remaining full flavored. A perfect example of the style.
