Poured into a pint glass from a bottle. Pours semi cloudy orange with a very fluffy white head. Smells of some hops but sweet grain. Tastes of wheat with a nice citrus hop bite. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

Poured from a growler into an IPA glass. Pale golden color. Poured with a nice head and some lacing. I had this in a bottle awhile back and did not care for it. However, for what reason I can not fathom, the taste seemed much better when it was on draft. Not my favorite pale ale but given its low ABV I would probably buy it again.

Drank from bottle & glass 5 Apr 2016, bottled 2? Feb 2016 (numeral obscured).

Dark lemon (a light tan tinge) with a pale head that didn't linger long. Smell was more impressive than the taste. Nothing unpleasant, with a decent hoppy top that subsided nicely, but nothing overwhelming in any category.

On tap in a pint glass. Overall a solid session ale. Nice pale gold color and
refreshing mouth feel.

Has this fresh, bready taste to it. A pleasant beer for easy drinking.
