Helios Pale Ale

Final beer from Upland that Penney brought back from Bloomington, IN, USA for me. Thanks! 12 oz bottle.
Orange body on the pour into the tulip glass produces a thin looking body that lacks presence. Good clarity, but lace and head are both very scant.
Poorly balanced pale ale for me that lacks depth. Almost watery. Acidic overtones that lead to mild heartburn on the way down and obviously reducing the drinkability quite alarmingly. Malts seem absent.
Some acidic like hops, but as for distninction, there is none. It’s wet, but that may be it’s best attribute. Not much need to visit this again, I might even prefer a cold macro over it – at least I would feel that the beer lived up to its billing.
