Full Sail Pale Ale ....

Today I am having the Pale Ale from Full Sail Brewing Company.  The twelve ounce bottle lists 5.4% ABV.  The Full Sail web site shows 37 IBUs.

This beer poured with a small, bone colored head.  Beer color is a somewhat darker golden amber.  The aroma has some malty sweetness, a little spice, a touch of fruit or floral.  I expected a little citrus, but I am not really getting it.  Medium bodied.  The taste has some biscuity malt, some spice and a mild underlying sweetness.  Floral/herbal hops.  Not getting any real citrus to the taste either.  A small amount of bitter in the background, that sticks around a little in the aftertaste.  This is a nice medium bodied beer, just not quite what I was expecting.
