On tap at the Falls Church restaurant.

Not your typical over the top DFH offering. In some respects a normal brew. Nevertheless, just an average effort on this brew.

A - Too pale. Faded yellow with a foamy white head.

The appearance was a nice light to somewhat hazy golden yellow to orange color. The bar pour didn’t allow too much head but once the beer went down the lacing looked pretty nice as it trickled for the most part. The smell had a nice blend of sweet citrus fruits and allowed the normal amount of English pale malts to amplify a smooth take on the style. The taste was mainly sweet but light. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium with a decent sessionability running about it. The carbonation seems appropriately matched for the style as it shows a decent harshness but not overbearing. Overall, I say this was a pretty good English Pale Ale that went excellent with the Reuben I had.
