Flat, slightly grainy aroma with light citrus hops. A fairly laid back APA.
Clear, amber colour with a small white head.
Grainy malt hits the palate followed by mild citrus hops. A bit astringent and sweet. Below average for a "craft" beer.
Medium-full body with moderate carbonation.
Not really the best APA. It's a bit too sweet and the astringency isn't good.
Serving type: on-tap

A - pours a clear mid amber, some fleeting wispy head and no lace.
S - sugary sweet malt, honey, lemon juice, not the worst.
T - artificial honey and caramel flavours dominate, accompanied by some nutmeg but actually less tasty than it sounds.
S - medium carbonation, moderate body, slightly syrupy as it warms.
O - pass on this.

330 ML poured into a globe
A-- Poured a hazy, amber orange color. One finger off white head. Holds up pretty well before going to film. Looks not that bad.
S-- Quite sweet. Sweet Carmel biscuit and lemon zest. More like a lemon tart with Carmel. Lemon smells somewhat artificial.
T-- Earthy, malty, very grainy and somewhat metallic. Lemon is really muted by a odd metallic taste.
M-- Medium carbonation and medium feel. Somewhat of a soapy feel to this. Still very earthy and grainy. Feels heavier for the ABV. Sweet lemon citrus finish to this.
O-- Another of the long line of very average Pale Ales being made here. Taste of this just does not work as over malted and tastes and feels artificial in a lot of ways. Probably better on tap but this is bottle. One and done.
