On-tap 8/4/13 at the brewpub in Willimantic, CT, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains citrus, piney hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts with a quick burst of citrus and caramel sweetness. Then a nice hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, decent kick, very good representation of style, this is a nice poundable beer to drink for a long time.

A - Pours cloudy and golden with a yellow\white foam.

S - Smells like a lemon italian ice to me. Very citrusy, fresh, and inviting.

T - A nice summer beer that has a lemonade kinda taste. Some sugary sweetness, then the lemon tartness, and finishes with a little bite of hops.

M - Refreshing, light bodied, and crisp with some bubbles.

O - May not stand out, but it is a good summer beer from a quaint brewery.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a murky light brown with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, bready malts, hop spices. Flavor is quite citrusy with lots of orange and grapefruit notes. Lots of hop spices and fruity citrus notes. This pale ale is really more like an IPA but that's what the brewers called it. Awesome beer, I really enjoyed it. Awesome palate and drinkability. This is pretty similar to Address Unknown IPA, just a little bit less hoppy.

Note: From the Willimantic website "An unfiltered Pale Ale brewed with Centennial hops at 47 IBU's"
