This is only my second experience of a Modern Times beer and once again it's a great bit of brewing. Described on the can as a hoppy sessionable pale ale, Oneida weighs in at 5.8% ABV and comes in Modern Times' usual 1 pint cans.

It looks beautiful in the glass, with a slightly hazy, light golden colour and a crisp white head.

The nose has a hint of lemon but resinous pine is the stronger aroma.

It has a decent amount of carbonation and a light body so when chilled, as this can was, it has a mouth feel that screams drink me.

It tastes brilliant; the citrus and pine follow through before a snappy but refreshing bitter finish. It reminded me a little of Sixpoint's Resin double IPA, although nowhere near as beefy.

Oneida is a great session ale which manages to taste lighter than it's 5.8 ABV would suggest whilst still packing in plenty of flavour.
