Pours a pale copper color with a little off white colored head

Smell- Sweet smell of malt, caramel and slight citrus hops.

Taste- Nice mellow taste of sweet malts, citrus and a slight bitter hops finish.

A little lacking flavor. Was hoping for a bit more.

Bought this assuming that the "extra" would mean there's something extra about it but apparently its just a plain old pale ale, oh well. Maybe it'll surprise me.

Pours a clear golden straw color head with lots of visible carbonation and a decent sized white head. Looks refreshing. Smell is very earthy and herbal, nice change up from the citric thing. Grainy taste all the way through with a clean dry finish. Very bright and clean and totally sessionable. Thirst quenching with a slightly slick swallow.

I wouldn't mind this beer on a hot day where I really couldn't handle anything heavy so its not bad. Flavors are very mild but that lends to its sessionability I guess.


I think I was being too nice to this beer earlier cause I was parched when I had it. Flavors are really underplayed here.
