Shore Break Pale Ale

This is a 5.9% ABV pale ale from the Rhinelander Brewing Company of Monroe, Wisconsin (think Minhas). I picked this up at a Fresh n' Easy store in California. Not sure if it is a contract brewed store brand or not.

The beer pours a light copper and amber in color, with, perhaps, a touch of haze, very light. There is over an inch of thick and somewhat creamy head that raggedly foams down. The aroma is light toasted malt and caramel, along with citrus, particularly grapefruit. The taste follows the aromas directly, sweet caramel malt met with citrusy hops. The bitterness is moderate, but there is a bit of a metallic note in the finish. It is fairly highly carbonated. Overall, meh.
