This paired with oysters is always nice.

This is a solid APA worth trying, but not brilliant for sure. It pours a rather light hue, more of a golden ale color than an APA. It has a slightly musty nose, but mostly undefined malts. The look of the beer is pretty average, clear, slightly carbonated, some head, no lacing, some retention. Solid.

As for the taste, there are very cereal like grains, dryish malts, not much hop, and not much else to write about. The mouthfeel is slight, not much aftertaste, not much hop anything, just more of the cereal like grains. This beer is what it is, nothing fancy, but okay.

Poured an orange skin color, decent head, the bouquet is hops and you can smell them from the crack. Taste is good in the mouth, nice back of the tongue tang. It is hoppy and may not appeal to milder hopped drinkers, but this is good enough for two if you are out. Better poured than in the bottle.
