I really like this. Citrusy hops and a light malt bill make this akin to cold lemonade on a hot summer day. It has enough bitterness to have a short but enjoyable aftertaste and at such a low abv is crushable.

Pours a slightly hazy light orange golden color with off-white head. Citrus fruits and light malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, a little depth. Finishes with citrus and bread.

Look: Hazy golden yellow with a BIG fully, white head. A very good looking beer!

Smell: Orange citrus with bitter hops.

Taste: Orange citrus with bitter hops. Exactly as the aromas say it is, is how it tastes.

Feel: Very smooth, but crisp. Creamy, but refreshing

Appearance: Cloudy golden amber, with a big head of off-white suds. Nice loopy tree-line lace.

Aroma: Citrus hops. Very nice!

Taste: Bright and rich on the hops front, with a heavy body, especially for a “session pale ale”. This is a strong and flavorful pale ale, nearly approaching IPA status. Not bad.
