Pours golden yellow with a white head. Aroma and flavor scream Avery hoppy ale, which I usually don't care for but do dig in this situation. A little floral, citric fruits such as a blend of lemon, grapefruit, and orange, and some pine along with some cereal graininess. Flavor is quite similar with some nice citric fruitiness, florals, and it closes out with some decent piney bitterness and cereal graininess. A thinner, active mouthfeel. Overall, a very nice sessionable pale ale.I was quitye impressed with the flavor and aroma that was able to come from a 3.5% abv beeer. Glad to have tried and would drink this one again for sure.

On tap at 38 Degrees in Alhambra, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with earthy and herbal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it seems pretty subdued in the aromas and flavors.

"3Point5 Pale Ale" Served on-draught into a 4 oz taster at Avery brewing. Reviewed from notes taken in December 2012.

A: Pours a quarter finger beige colour head of nice cream and thickness, and fair retention. Body colour is a clear pale copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Floral hops, pale malts, hints of citrus, and wheat (?). An average strength aroma.

T: Clean malts, floral hops, and soap. This clearly spent too long in primary. Balanced but overly simple. It's decent, but not impressive. Quite boring and bland.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Decent carbonation. Decent thickness. Suits the flavour profile okay.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable. A good session beer. I wouldn't get it again; it's quite pedestrian.

On tap poured into pint glass.

Pours a light golden straw, with a white head that's slightly smaller than two fingers. Decent aroma, some light citrus notes with a little bready malts in there. Not to shabby. Taste is a whole other story, not much going on here. I understand its a 3.5 session ale but give me more than this in flavor. Very very light orange and lemon on the tongue but besides that its got nothing. Feel is very light as well, close to water in drinkablity. Nothing about this beer is good, aroma is okay but that's about it.
