Pint can poured in a standard pint glass.

Honey gold color, no haze. 1-plus f white cap, drippings lacing. Clean look.

Lightly caramelized and toasted malt aroma. A bit earthy, some citrus.

Strong grapefruit flavor. Light caramel malt and a touch of pine.

Medium body. Strong grapefruit rind hop bitterness, lasting. No alcohol or sugar affects.

Classic APA with a West Coast IPA touch.

For a 5.5abv RS is amazing….
Agree with all of the previous reviews, not going to drag you through all that…one of the best low abv ales out there…nice and complex, great mouthfeel…don’t want to gulp this one and it works well with a wide variety of food…backs up whatever your having (or not having)….but also stands alone nicely.

On tap at WECO Beer Garden, 16 oz. in a shaker pint.
Light hazy golden, two fingers fine white head. Full cap and curtains lacing
Grapefruit, pine, bread yeast aromas.
Grapefruit, pepper, pine, lemon zest flavors.
Rich flavor and body for a pale ale, great carbonation, nice bitter citrus aftertaste.
Very nice.

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium to dark golden honey in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and moderate dark golden yellow + amber + burnt orange + caramel colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense sudsy foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film covering a little more than 75% of the surface of the beer surrounded by a large patch of slightly mottled very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of toasted + caramel + pale + bready malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. Moderate aromas of earthy + citrus/grapefruit rind + floral + pine hops.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of toasted + caramel + pale + bready malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of earthy + citrus/grapefruit rind + floral + pine hops which impart a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and definitely an old school pale ale. Enjoyable and nostalgic, reminds me of year past.
