Bottle gifted to me on Christmas 2018. Tastes pretty fresh, no skunking. I haven't had this beer in over seven years probably. After years of fancy shmancy IPA's, stouts, geuzes, lambics, oud bruins, wild ales, pilsners, lagers, etc. Etc. I was surprised at how simple, unpretentious (just like the label says) , tasty, crisp and clean it was. I drank it pretty fast, I really can't tell you what the appearance or aroma was, but everything else was deserving of high marks. Went well with veal meatloaf.

Pours gold slightly hazy foamy finger head that lingers. Aroma- orange candy, grapefruit, hops. Pretty muted. Taste- little grass, bread, orange. A little sugary. Mouthfeel, very tingly, crisp, and watery. Favorite part of this beer. Refreshing. Overall- easy drinking untainted beer. Little bit more flavor than another light beer.

Perfect balance of hop bitterness, grapefruit flavor with a nice malt finish. My favorite New Glarus all-year round beer and one of the best examples of an American Pale Ale

12 oz can poured into a pint glass no canned on date.

A: Crystal clear light amber burnished gold body. small white Soapy Head that clings as a film.

S: lots of over ripe fruit light honey and a nice caramel smell.

T: Lots of light soft over ripe cantaloupe and orange then a nice toasted caramel finish.

M: Light crisp clean well carbonated.

O: this beer has nice fruitiness with great malty backbone and a very crisp clean drinkability. This beer is pretty close to perfect.

For a pale ale, this one falls into a crowded field and does not stand out. It pours a clear yellow with a thick white head that dissipates rather quickly leaving no lacing. The aroma is biscuits and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet malt with a gentle hop bite in the finish, I'm missing the citrus hop or any flavor profile for that matter. I want my pale ale to have actual flavor; not taste like any other run of the mill ale. This one falls into that category. I'll pass.

12oz bottle (date stamp I108 15:00) served in a nonic glass.

Appearance: Mostly clear dark gold with just a bit of chill haze. Persistent thin white head with some islands, sheets, and strands of persistent lacing.

Smell: Really amazing smell with lots going on: citrus, pine, floral, herbal, berries, tropical fruit.

Taste: Citrus and tropical fruit up front, bready malt middle, and then pine and citrus light bitter finish that finishes a bit sharply.

Mouthfeel: Good carbonation. A little thin. Dry finish.

Overall / Drinkability: Probably one of the more aroma-heavy APAs I've had. Easily drinkable, very interesting, and I would not mind another, or at least a full 16oz pint. Went well with vegetable lo mein.
