Absolutely love the label on this. The simplicity of the whale tail and cool looking script.

Crystal clear copper body with a very thin layer of soft looking sandy colored foam that leaves some fair lace.

The nose is pretty light and one dimensional with biscuity/cereal english malt. There is a touch of fruity hops in the background.

Very pleasant flavor of biscuit and cracker with a lighter sweetness from the malt. The hops add a mild fruit and citrus flavor with light bitterness.

Light-medium body with crisp and clean feel.

I put the drinkability on this very high. A very flavorful pale ale that I could easily drink several of. Solid brew.

12 ounce bottle poured into a Unibroue tulip. Best buy November, 2012. Hazy copper body, off white head, moderate retention. Clear lacing, sticky. Aroma includes earthy bitterness, some caramel sweetness. Taste is slightly bitter with slight sweetness on the back end. Really not a bad pale ale, just nothing too memorable.
