  • Pours a pale amber color with a quarter inch white head. Some retention on the head as a layer of foam resides on top of the beer long after the pour. Lacing is web like.

    Aroma is relatively mild, but I am getting mostly malts and a floral hop presents.

    Taste is bready malts and a bit of earthiness with a mild floral sweetness. I am also getting a hint of honey on backend.

    Light to medium body with medium carbonation. Watery with a bit of dryness in the finish.

    Overall this is a decent pale ale. This is not a very complex beer, but is enjoyable and refreshing. Worth a try and is a pretty easy drinking beer.

  • Pours slight cloudy with minimal white head. With such a small amount of foam, the retention was equally non-existent and no lacing to speak of.

    Aroma is sweet, grain while minor floral notes play back side. Slight on the nose.

    Taste is big on the malt. Grain, bread, and toffee malts take the forefront. The hop profile is on the low end and almost non-existent.

    Light body with a medium carbonation.

    There is nothing over the top here or fantastic about the beer, it is a nice drinking, malt forward APA. If you need your APAs to be hop bombs, don't drink this and go grab an IPA instead. Enjoy!

  • A: Nice gold color, average white foamy head with low retention.

    S: Malty and grainy and a low sweetness. Maybe fruity, but it's a litte stretch.

    T: Bready and sweet. Most of the taste notes (fruit, floral, or bitterness) of the hops are way in the background. A low to mid-level mouthfeel, and medium carbonation.

    D: Nothing offensive. Not any distinctive elements in it's personality. A very easy drinker. It kind of grows on me and I would definately grab a few if I found them rolling around in a cooler on a hot summer day.
