L - now that's a lot of haze for a pale ale! My lanta! Brick of yeasty yellow color with a vibrant and sticky head.

S - oats, pineapple, and orange peel. Full-bodied aroma. Fresh, earthy hops. Like the can says "exceedingly aromatic" is right!

T - pale malts and hints of rindy fruit. Flavor is subdued compared to the nose. Lemongrass and pithy orange. Finishes with a strong, bready oatiness. Pure grapefruit rind at the end.

F - smooth and creamy, thanks to the oats, but has a youthful innocence to it. Drinkable. Love oats.

O - I like this beer. I'm a sucker for easy-drinking, lightly juicy, mildly pithy, creamy oat type brews. At such a low ABV, this is a beer I could find myself drinking a lot of. Goes down smooth, has rich flavor, and is right up my alley.

Draught pour at the beer cafe. Definitely the most underwhelming of their beers I've had. All the others were good to great, but very surprised by the mediocrity of this Pale Ale. Won't revisit, nor recommend.

Pours hazy, bright yellow in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is lemon, orange rind, and some tangerine. Slightly bitter, light bodied and fruity. Very good pale ale. First beer from the brewery and it has me curious for more.
