As the name suggests, it is very pale! Almost a greenish hue to it. The head dissipates pretty quickly.

Smells of honeydew and grains. Aroma is pleasant and sweet, but a little mild.

Fruity flavor. Reminds me of melon or cantaloupe? I would like a little more of a hops presence.

Exceptionally smooth, with a clean finish. Chewy and very drinkable.

It's a little bit mild. But it's quite nice and well balanced. Certainly worth a try.

Poured from a bomber into a mug, the beer is hazy, muddled goldenrod color with no head whatsoever. Aromas of roasted grains and a touch of honey sweetness, with a light hopping. Flavors are toasted cereal grains with a floral highlight and sugary sweet toffee blend. Slight, inconsistent layering of cling on the glass, the beer has a medium body that is smooth. Aftertaste is rich and sweet, with a slightly cloying finish. The beer has more of an English Pale feel to it than anything.

Appears a hazy light gold with a small white cap that forms a solid collar. Solid tubes of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of fruity peach, apricots, and citrus.
Taste is of the aromas with a fruity blast of melon and apple.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, and chewy on the finish.

From a 22 oz. bomber stamped Best By 03/07/12. Sampled on February 27, 2012. The pour is a cloidy pale yellow with a tremendous head building up from active carbonation bubbles. The aroma has malts, a little yeast, and clean hops in there but there is something else akin to citrus. The body medium and holds its texture well when swirling on my tongue. The taste has a kind of grainy, malt sensatioin along with this hard to define tart, citrus note. The hops end clean. Likeable.
