4.43/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

pours a clear blonde with minimal, even white head which has long retention and leaves spotted and stringy lacing. smell is amzing. nothing is over the top. its not a citrus blast or just a blonde. its got a noticeable amount of aromatic malts and smooth tree like hops.

taste: has a mellow mix of pine hops and a very potent yeast quality.

mouthfeel: starts oily and ends silky. exactly what i want in a pale ale.

drinkability: this is a very refreshing beer. as well as full flavored and interesting.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Light amber filtered color with a strong head lasting a while with strong lacing on the glass.

S: Hoppy and sweet with a good touch of citrus and spice.

T: Strong in the hops and citrus spice and has a touch of light caramel malts.

M/D: Light but sticky and dry in the mouth. Very good drinkability I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A slighly dark straw color with thin looking white head. Doesn't look all that impressive.
Smell: Some pine and citrus, nothing strong or overpowering. Almost like a lager with extra hops.
Taste is nice, clean and crisp. Citrus and pine blend well. A bit thin in the feel, but very drinkable. I liked this one overall.

From the website:
North American two-row and European Pilsen malts are blended to give a pale straw color and pleasant, dry maltiness. A generous use of Cascade hops lend a crisp, citrus finish.

My review:
The color is very pale, like a pilsner. A clear beer, my glass had a noticeable head and left some lace as I drank it. The aroma also reminded me of a pilsner: the malt was crisp and the hop was light.

Rounder than a lager, this is a very dry brew. The cascade hop is evident. Overall, the beer is far more flavorful than it first appears. The aftertaste is also dry with a slight hop bite. Given the color, this is a fuller bodied beer than expected.

In summary, this is an aled pilsner--quaffable and light.
