Growler purchased from the brewery. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a clear pale amber color with a thin off-white head that faded to a lasting collar.
S: Fragrant hops on the nose, floral and lightly fruity, with undertones of bready malts.
T: Follows the nose with flavors of bready crackery malts with the hops taking a back seat. I get notes of light pine and a bit of mineral water. Flavors are quick with almost no aftertaste. An extremely mellow beer.
M: Medium body, slick and clean mouthfeel with light carbonation. Light bitterness in the finish.
O: I thought the nose was way different than the mouth. A very light and quaffable beer, albeit light and a bit boring.

Poured into a pint glass at the brewery.

A: Half a finger of light head. Clear golden body.

S: Wet barley. Bread. Dank hops.

T: Tastes like weed. Mint. Hops. Rye. A little like a pumpernickel pale ale.

M: Only moderately substantial. Boring.

O: A pretty good pale ale, but not great. Would not have again or recommend.

Taken from my notes...

Burnt orange, clear hue, no head. Nice clean malt aroma. very crisp flavor. Citrus hops in the flavor. Grain malt flavors blend nicely with the hops, which back it up. Juicy, light hop after taste, or is it the malt? This borders on the line of a strong best bitter. It's not as even as per say, a Magnolia brew, but it's alright. The malt character is bolder than I'd imagine. After having this beer sit for a bit some of the after tastes that I liked at first I began to dislike. Instead of a lingering good hop aftertaste the beer seems to get a second wind. Glad I tried this brew. I'm typically a fan of their nonbelgian brews, because it's a nice change of pace, this just isn't bad, just not my thing.

On tap at O'Brien's today.

Pours a dark clear copper. minimal thin white foam cap from the bartenders pour. Smell is grainy and earthy, in a hop sorta way. Taste has a nice and smooth combination of earthy hops and mild crystal grains. A perfectly good session beer. I've never been a fan of this style but found it amazingly drinkable if in the right mood. Nothing to complain about in the carbonation department.
