Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mug glass.

A: The beer is a light amber color, with a large foamy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains a good blend of floral hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts with sweet flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering hops presence comes in. The malt character is hearty and provides a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Smooth and very crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not too filling, mild kick, very good representation of style, this is a nice flavorful pale ale to pound down for a long time.

New arrival at the beer shop. Attractively priced at $3.99/22oz.

Pours a slightly turbid pale gold with moderate white head.
Smells biscuity and grainy. Grassy hops.
Taste is mainly pale malts, a touch vegetal. Mild bitterness.
Slightly thicker mouthfeel than expected, though not unpleasant.
Nice well-priced pale ale. No weird ingredients or other gimmicks. Just an well-made pale ale.
