Pours a clear gold, nothing too hazy. Smells a bit fruity, some citrus to the nose with an afterthought of toasted malt. Taste is a bit thin at the start, with the mouth feel a little bit weak. The follow-up is a nice little kick of hops that at least keeps things interesting.
Impression: The first thought with this is that there is just a little bit lacking. Be very careful about keeping this a little bit on the warmer side. There are some good notes here as long as you don’t bury them away by keeping it ice-cold. The hop profile is pretty nice actually, mostly citrus but a little bit of pine note on the back-end.
This is not an extraordinary ale, in fact I think an ordinary ale is the perfect way to describe it. It is just a standard pale ale. There is really nothing wrong with it but it just leaves you wanting a little bit more.There are some notes that make this a worthwhile beer to try, however it is not worth searching for it. On the other hand if you are at the store picking out a 6 pack, it would not be a huge mistake to throw a bottle in.
