Kind of a darker appearance for a pale ale, this one comes in looking amber. Aroma is fitting in that regard as well.

Thankfully the malts aren't as heavy as the appearance, there is a faint hoppiness, faint bitterness and pretty much you realize this is the same old stalwart of the 90s pnw scene that it always was. Mild, easy drinking, something you can easily make at home.

Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Lacings are average.
Smell is bready malts with just enough herbal hops to keep to style.
Taste is herbal earthy hops with a light funk to them. The malts are bready and lightly dirty.
Mouthfeel is medium fairly low carbonation and a bitter / sweet finish.
Overall a Pale Ale for every day drinking. Eclipsed in most was by the bigger and bolder trend, it is still an easy drinking un pretentious example of an APA.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery orange amber with a one finger off-white head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of biscuit and slightly toasted malt, light herbal hops. Flavor is slightly sweet bready malt, earthy hops, finishes slightly dry with pleasant residual hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a moderate creaminess, a pleasant surprise from a pale ale. Flavors are subtle, but well balanced. A quite pleasant light pale ale.
