Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-burnt orange/copper color. Finger’s worth of white foamy head. Messy lace. The aroma starts off with some sweet orange zest, some lemon peel and then some grassy hops. Caramel and toffee malts play with the balance along with some breadiness. The flavor leans malty sweet with a nice clean taste upon my tongue. Well balanced in the aftertaste and leads well into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine as it is. Overall, good American pale ale that I could come back to if given the chance.

Pours a medium-light gold, a little hazy, with a nice little cap of creamier white head that leaves small sticky lacing. The aroma doesn't exist beyond faint whiffs of grain. The taste is much the same, bordering into sweet. The body has a nice weight to it, mostly smooth with just a hint of carbonation.

Not much hop presence on the nose, almost lagered scent on the nose. Nothing too memorable about this one, but has the potential to be an everyday ale. Bottled from grocer in King of Prussia.
