One of my local Fredneck brewers so I'll try best to avoid any homerism. For session ales (pale or IPA), I found this one to be one of the more enjoyable and truly sessionable ones. Very sessionable,flavorful but far from the "hop water" types that seemed to have flooded the market. I will try to buy a lot more of this one whenever possible.

A - Dark gold. Darker than a typical session APA.

S - Light malty sweetness with light floral hops. Well-balanced, but not strong or overwhelming.

T - Follows knows. A very nicely balanced beer. Based on taste, would guess a higher ABV

F - A definite strong-suit of this beer. Very creamy and heavy relative to ABV.

O - Tasty low ABV beers are difficult to make. Obviously, this is not going to blow you out of the water like a traditional 6+ABV APA/IPA might. But it is a tremendous accomplishment to pack the flavor, balance, and mouth feel into such a low ABV beer. Great work!

As far as Session Pales go...this is excellent. Monocacy is quickly becoming my favorite Maryland brewery. Hard to make an ale with this refreshing, slightly citrusy, well balanced flavor below 4% ABV. Impressive. I could stand for some more hop punch though. If this was in 15 packs of cans like Founders All Day I would singlehandedly make it worth their while.

Sampled at Snallygaster 2014. Seems like a nice IPA, hard to believe it's a low ABV pale aleā€¦but otherwise nothing special.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Pours cloudy orange red with a fluffy white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of earthy and piney hops, but pretty weak. Tastes of piney hops with slight earthiness, with a tad bit of sweet grain. Beer is light bodied, easy drinking, but heavily carbonated. Overall, an above average beer.
