Marketed poorly as an APA. This works more as a solid blond on all levels. The balance is nice and the flavor is alright, but you don't get hop presence and any bitterness to indicate an APA. My score is probably a balance of evaluating by style vs. taste impressions.

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with thin head and minimal lacing.
Smell is very faintly grassy. Not much to it.
Taste is grainy biscuit with a hint of citrus. Minimal hops.
There's an odd, funky, almost pumpkin spice at the finish.

Clear and pale with a thin white head. Light and drinkable with balanced flavors. It's definitely light on the "American Pale Ale" style - it's a lot less hoppy than other APAs I've tried. Still a good brew though.

Beer pours a cloudy, dirty yellow with no head to speak of.

Basic malts on the nose, minimal hops detected, a sweet smell.

The taste follows with malt and a slight hop bitterness, but there is an unpleasant sweet taste to this beer that I do not enjoy.

The feel.is on the heavy side, almost syrupy. Minimal carbonation.

This was not a good beer for me, and I may have been generous with the straight threes. This is more of a blonde than an APA, but it isn't that much of a blonde, either. Not recommended.

Pours a medium amber color with white head. Light citrus and some grass on the nose, with a little malt; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with malt mostly.
