Semi-clear amber, with a nice, thick head of carbonation. Lace is lovely thick cobweb-like.

Nose says more amber ale, as I get more toasty grains than hops.

Flavor echoes this. Seems sweetly malty, pleasant, with a touch of citrus hops later on the palate. Expect a well-done English-style pale ale, rather than a hoppy American pale, and you'll be alright.

That said, this is solid and sessionable, for certain, but not one I'd look to again.

12oz bottle poured into an Imperial pint.

A - Medium sized white head recedes to a small cap of foam. The color is golden with near perfect clarity.

S - Real nice balance between hops and malt. The malt has a nice husky/grainy character, light but distinct. Hops are a little bit of citrus with a touch of spiciness to it.

T - Quick glimpse of those biscuity base malts withhold any sweetness. The malt holds a little background for the hops mid-pallete. Hops have a nice earthy flavor to them. Little bit of hops finish up the flavor and last moderately into the aftertaste.

M - Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry.

O - Great session beer for a hop head. I appreciate the balance of malt and hops but still showcasing traditional hop qualities. Very drinkable and what I would think to be perfect for a spring cookout.
