look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.75 A: Moderately hazed orange brown color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy off-white head. Retention is very good and lots of lacing is left. A few small floaties in there.

4.5 S: Lots of citrusy hoppiness in here. HUGE orange aroma with peach and mango underneath. Mild doughy yeastiness. Sweet neutral maltiness. This smells wonderful.

3.5 T: Unlike the nose, the taste isn't nearly as impressive. Just a mild citrusy hop flavor. Mild bitterness. Light neutral malts with light yeasty breadiness.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess with just a touch of chewiness. Not bad.

3.5 D: This started out so strong, but failed to pull it off with the taste.

Review from 4/2/14, on tap at Tribeca Tap House, NYC. Pours clear yellow gold color with a huge foamy 2 finger white head that was full of small bubbles and faded very slowly, leaving good lacing as it dissipated. Smells of lemon zest, citrus, malt, spring-like hoppy notes, grains and light caramel; nice balance and appropriate for the style. Tastes like it smells but with more citrus and piney hop notes to go along with the lemon zest, malt, herbs, grass, light bready grains and caramel; very has nice balance with a little malt sweetness that makes it very easy drinking. I drank 2 of these quickly as they felt nice and light with average to mild carbonation, a medium body and very good drinkability. Aftertaste was clean and near crisp, this was a definite session beer and one I’d like to try from a bottle. A solid brew.

I purchased this at Shady McGrady's enjoyed chilled from a goblet.

The color is a golden hued amber with mild hazed look and thick white head that drops to a ring with ring of lace. The smell is fruity hops with some mild yeast ester and hint of malt aroma. The feel is decent with balance of malt sweetness and slight bitter hops with fruity and tangy yeast with moderate carbonation and semi-dry finish.

The taste is good with slight pine tinge from the hops with light citrus and slight astringent flavor like overbrewed tea with a mild malt flavor which adds sweetness to balance the slight bitter aspect. The taste of malt is pretty well interwoven with the hops and yeast as a pale should be. Overall this is a nicely flavored pale, not very complex or intense but it is good for the style

a. The head on this beer lasts and lasts. Carbonation bubbles up from the bottom of the glass for several minutes after it is poured into the glass. Color is a golden orange - hazy. Can see the yeast in glass at the time of the pour, floating upward in the glass.

s. Light smell with a fresh smell - a hint of hops, possible citrus.

t. Well balanced and light. Some citrus, some hops, some high notes.

m. Perfect. Velvety with the constant carbonation. The lingering taste is in the middle of the tongue.

o. Scores range from a 4 to a 5 on this one. Have to say it is an excellent summer choice. Refreshing, playful, light. An outstanding beer that would be welcome at BBQ's and Picnics.
