Poured a copper honey color in a Brooklyn Ocktober fest glass with a 4F head.

Aroma: sweet, malty, fruit.

The MF is not very carbonated and is relatively mild for the style.

Taste: fruit- possibly tropical, with a lightly bitter, sweet,malty finish.

Another excellent Berkshire brew and one of the better Pale Ales I tasted.

LOOK: Hazy Orange to Carmel Brown in Color, Moderate Foamy Tan Head that Dissipates Quickly but Plenty of Lacing Remains to Coat the Glass

SMELL: Very Mild Citrus Aroma, Overall Not much Scent but Pleasant

TASTE: Refreshing and Crisp with a Mild Fruity Sweetness, Very Slight Bitterness after the Swallow

FEEL: Light Carbonation, Very Smooth

OVERALL: Enjoyed this APA very much and would Recommend it. The fact that I wasn't Overwhelmed by a harsh kick despite the Higher ABV (6.30%) was a BIG plus :)
