An amber color that leans a little darker with an orange hue to the body, this beer is fairly clear. It develops a creamy and pretty rocky head that rises pretty high and falls pretty quickly. It does keep up some of its form the rest of the way, and it leaves a good mix of patchy and spotty lace.
The aroma is a little faint, but there's a good balance, though it's a little maltier than it ought to be, while a light hops presence adds citrus with a touch of rind.
The hops really do need to come out stronger, and particularly so against the malty backbone. Caramel sweetness and toast are the main element, while some of the pithy citrus does come out as well. It does have some graininess running underneath.
Smoothness seems to be favored over crispness, but there is a bit keeping up. It almost runs out of life as it goes, but doesn't quite. Carbonation does remain steady.

Poured into a beer mug.

I got this as part of a Dundee sampler 12 pack.

Appearance: Pours a three-finger off-white head; golden orange/light amber in color.

Smell: Smells subtley of citrus peel and a bit of sweet grains.

Taste is light, with a slightly bitter hoppiness and a grainy taste. Almost like a standard lager with some extra citrus hops.

Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is light but creamy; medium carbonation. Refreshing.

Overall: A little light, and not exactly setting the standard for pale ales. I'm not sure how true to the style it is, but for the price it's not a bad beer. A casual drink.

Bought as part of Dundee's Ales & Lagers Seasonal Pack from Southtown Beverage on 4/26/13. Case price was $ 17.99.

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a nonic. Served at cool Temp.

appearance: light amber with a three finger white head. excellent lacing.

aroma: faint pine notes with a hint of citrus.

mouthfeel: thinnish..

taste: a wide variety of hops provide different types of bitterness to a thick bready maltiness.

notes: this actually works pretty well. A pale ale should be restrained and this is that but in a complex way.
