look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: I was drinking this on tap at a cool eatery in Front Royal, VA. The place was dimly lit, but the golden color definitely comes through well. A nice, frothy head that dissolves quickly.

Smell: Light, almost breathy, with a little sweet, a little malty mixed together.

Taste: Not bad, very smooth, with a light, grassiness to it. Am I standing in a meadow? No, but the thought crossed my mind for a second.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, smooth. Good.

Overall: A well-made Extra Pale Ale. I liked it overall, and it added to the atmosphere of the place where I was eating. I had this with quail. A good combination. I'd definitely get it again. Lovely on tap.
