Wellhead Pale Ale into literstein

Copper with golden highlights, a dense three finger light beige
rootbeer float style head. Definitely looks the part. Great lacing to
boot.

Nose is caramel, candied citrus, toast, herbal hop, fruitiness.

Interesting palette for a pale, more inline with the English style
than American. Fruity, toasty, sugar crusted tangerines, light
caramels. Not nearly dry enough to fit the Yankee style, definitely
enough residual to fit the British mold.

Soft and smooth on the palette, with a low level carbonation.

Easy drinking sessionable brew. Quite handily fits the style from
across the pond, and quite easy to put down too.
