On tap in a pint glass.

Pale straw gold color with a touch of chill haze. The 1F white cap tapers to a thin film and leaves moderate lacing.

It smells good, like light lemon-herb tea with biscuits. The downside is that the smell is soooo light.

The taste leans slightly toward a light lemon fruit beer with a lean malt base.

Light and refreshing. Some malt sweets then a hop finish to round out its APA designation.

Just enough hops to make it an APA, no bitterness and modest abv make it an invitee on a nice day.

The slightly hazy golden colored beer pours into a Duvel glass with a 1/2” white that slowly but visibly recedes to an irregular thin island of foam on the surface while leaving a ring, some legs and a sheet of lacing on the side of the glass. Sipping creates lots of small scattered patches of lacing that cling to the sides of the glass.

The aromas are moderate in strength and include some bready malt, some floral, some citrus (lemon) and a touch of earthy, grassiness from the hops.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with the bready malt sweetness up front and being backed up nicely with some lemon zest and some floral notes. The well controlled but noticeable bitterness is gentle and a bit earthy and grassy.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium bodied and fairly smooth with some light, finely bubbled and persistent carbonation. The finish begins as the malt and sweetness begin to fade, allowing the citrus and floral flavors tho show a bit before they to fade away in to a nice dry slightly grassy bitterness.

Enjoying this beer and will probably be looking for more since the flavors are moderate and enjoyable. In my view and APA should not have the same intensity of flavor as an IPA and this one fits the bill nicely. Also, this would be a nice refreshing APA to have on offer in a cooler set out for a backyard party or barbecue.

On tap.

A - Pale straw gold colored pour with creamy lacing.

S - Lemon peel with a little earthiness, graininess, and honey malt.

T - Light lemon peel, crackery honey malt, some graininess, and ends with a bitter crisp lemon-like finish.

M - Light medium body and coats the mouth with a citrus grittyness.

O - This reminds me more of a macro lager. Would be an easy crusher on a super hot day.

A; crystal clear; pale gold; 2 finger white head that receded to a splotchy cap; nice lacing;

S: seemed a little light struck; not especially aromatic; some lemon;

T: evenly balanced between malt and hops; I would have liked more hops; mild bitterness on the finish;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: good, but I expect an APA to lean toward hops;

12 oZ bottles.

Totally, sparkling clear golden color, lively look, very much like a fine pilsner. Complete with a fluffy, crystal white foam top. The fluffy foam recedes pretty slow with nice lace left-over.

A malty biscuit and honey aroma seems interesting for this pale ale. Light, fruity hoppiness, some herbal and pepper tones too.

The body is very light, crispy start, malty smooth finish. Has the body feel of a Blonde ale with a very light pilsner style sour malty bite. This stuff could be used as a hydrating liquid for big hikes. Forget Gatorade, Trail Vision could go in my back pack bladder. This beer will pair well with just about everything, especially pasta dishes and fish.

Very light in feel and flavor but the malt and hops are in pretty good balance for tge style in most ways. It could certainly have a slightly bigger malty profile and hops that stand out a bit, but that's just not what this pale ale's about.

Would have liked it more, but carbonation was a bit heavy for me.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an Ommegang fluted glass.

L: Clear light golden pour with 3 fingers of foamy white head. Falls fast with great lacing.

S : Lemony citrus and cracked grains.

T/F: Follows the nose. Light bodied brew... easy drinking with ample carbonation. Crackery grains and malts. Drinks almost like more of a lager than a pale. Lemony citrus notes... hops for bittering but still on the sweet side.

O: Pleasant... sessionable... nothing all that special, and again... tastes a bit like a lager/pale hybrid. Worth trying in a mix-a-6.
