Dark yellow and solid white one inch head on it. Aroma was not really all that hoppy. If it was dry hopped, it would be a surprise. Old school.

Taste a little sweet, good amount of pale malt, hopping is still way down. That is its biggest detraction.

Silverback is a slightly bolder and higher-alcohol (though still low in the scheme of things) version of Light Rail Pale. It's a little bit hoppier and more flavorful, so if you want something in that realm, give this one a go.

Clear orange/gold color pour with a small airy head. Smell of flowery hops. Initial taste is nice with a balance of grapefruit and pine. Body has flavors of citrus and a little biscuit. Finishes with a citrusy bitterness.
