Flying Fish Extra Pale Ale

Hey all!  I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving, and are now ready to make the transition into the winter months.  Tonight I'm highlighting a beer from NJ's Flying Fish Brewing Company.  Flying Fish recently completed a move into an old building in Somerdale, NJ, not too far from where they were previously located in Cherry Hill.  They are aiming to make their new brewery as green as possible, and are also promising some new beers to be released once they're settled in.  I, for one, will be looking forward to that!
Extra Pale Ale
Flying Fish Brewing Company
5.2% ABV
11.2 IBUs
Best by:  ??  (There was an area on the label for a best by date, but it was blank)
Random Tidbit:  According to Flying Fish's website, the Extra Pale Ale is the best-selling local craft beer at the Philadelphia Phillies ballpark.
Extra Pale Ale pours a golden/straw color with a one and a half finger head.  Lacing starts off pleasant, but as I drink this beer, it becomes spotty.  There is only minimal aroma.  I get light smells of citrus and biscuity malt.  This beer tastes very straightforward.  Like the smell, there are flavors of citrus and biscuity malt.  The mouthfeel is somewhere between light and medium, with no hint of alcohol.  Quite refreshing.

Overall:  Extra Pale Ale is a decent beer that isn't going to challenge anybody.  It could be a great introduction to somebody who's a craft beer novice.  I probably wouldn't buy this one again, but instead would buy something from Flying Fish's Exit Series.  5/10
