A: Pours a clear slightly cloudy pale straw color. One finger of bone white head,
with thin retention. lacing is sporadic.

S: Sweet. Malts. Light floral aroma. Butter and caramel.

T/M: Creamy. Malts. Sweet. Grains. Grassy yeas taste. Has a light hop kick/taste.
Finish is yeasty and grainy. The finish is on the dry side.

O: Above average pale ale. Nice malty taste. Could have a more pronounced hop
flavor. Still worth a try.

Cheers!

Poured from Berskhire growler into a Sam Smith pint glass.

A - Pours a clear golden yellow. A one finger head movesto a thin lace.

S - Faint pine, toasted grains.

T - Toasted grains, mild bitterness, and pale malts. Clean and balanced. Hints of mild blueberry as it warms.

M - Carbonation medium high, works well for the style.

O - Good pale ale, well made, and is sessionable. Makes for an ideal summer beer.
