A: Pours a clear copper to amber in color with light amounts of visible carbonation at the surface. The beer has a finger tall dense light beige head that reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of toasted pale malts with some light fruits and hints of citrus hops.

T: Like the smell, the taste of this beer is mild with very good balance - not too sweet and not too bitter. There is a toasted malt body with some light hints of caramel. There are also some light citrus (orange/lemon) hops which impart a delicate bitterness which does not linger.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: A little more delicate in flavor then I expected but this is a very enjoyable beer. The beer is quite easy to drink and could be sessionable.

Pours a muddy orange amber with a slight head and light lacing. Orange light malt with light citrus. Finishes with a light malty, spicy flavor. Nice for a low ABV ale. Darker and more flavorful than I'd expect from a pale ale. Boulevard does a good job on these beers

Thanks to Jackie for the bottle. Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Served chilled.

A) Clean amber with good clarity. A finger of head with a bit of an orange tint. Decent retention, no lacing.

S) The aroma is mild pine, citrus, light malt presence and a little hint of yeast.

T) Mild flavors like the nose, but this strikes a nice balance. This beer will not wow you with flavor, but there is enough hops to keep it interesting. A remarkably clean finish.

M) A medium to lighter medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel here is really what you look for in a session ale. Smooth... This goes down with ease.

O) Nice Pale Ale right here. Not as flavorful as some offerings, but if you're looking to knock back a sixer on the patio, or around the fire pit, this will do the job. Glad to recommend this beer.
