Bottle to pilsner glass; while cooking for super bowl. Go Eagles.

LOOK: dark yellow, small off white head. Good color for a pale ale.
AROMA: biscuit, cereal, hints of floral and citrus notes.
TASTE: sweet malted grains, light hops. light sour lemon/grapefruit like aftertaste.
FEEL: full bodied for a pale ale. Carbonation gives it some real zing.

Very good version of a classic pale ale. Enjoying more as I get into it.

My favorite beer of all time. Has a fresh somewhat fruity taste. Similar to Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale but with better balance and flavor. Maintains a crisp floral flavor from top to bottom.

I had higher expectations for this beer. It seemed to lack complexity for my palate. True, it is a single-hop variety, but I did not find it to be an inviting beer. It was a bit dry and grassy. Reminds me of a conventional, mass produced beer somewhere between a lager and a pilsner style, lacking any real distinction. Sorry.

A good beer but too hoppy for me. A good summer ale
