3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This turned out to be my favorite beer in the flight of five I had here on 9/17/09. The flavor profile is closer to the American ingrediants of a pale ale than to a British ESB. Both the smell and the flavor are quite earthy. The color of the brew is light brown (and cloudy). Nice lace. The finish features a bittering hop that has some staying power in the aftertaste. The balance is pleasant and would make it easy to keep ordering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Prado. Poured a clearish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty, toasty, earthy, lightly hopped, and lightly bitter. Taste is very malty, with toasted bread notes and bitter notes as well. A relatively simple and refreshing brew. Mouth is smooth and the body is average. Overall, a decent brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an appetizing transparent mahogany with a fairly thick pale beige head. Aroma is malty with hints of cinnamon and a touch of hops. Flavor is malty with an undertone of spice and a little hop bitterness, satisfying if not complex. Texture is fairly smooth and nicely tingly and edgy. Definitely worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Lightly hazed, brown body with a nice coating layer of ivory-colored foam on top.
Smell: Bready, toasty malts with a hint of dark brown sugar. Light notes of fruit and earthy, herbaceous English-minded hops.
Taste: Pale malts with tastes of darkened bread crusts and biscuits. Light thriving taste of brown sugar for a touch of added sweetness. Faint fruitiness. Earthy, leafy hops with a medium-light bitterness. Finishes bitter, finishes drying.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-low carbonation.
Drinkability: Certainly more enjoyable than a trip across I-285 regardless of day or time. As with the Farmhouse Ale, Iím still stuck listening to the virtues of Eckhart Tolle from a plastered bar patron and getting further book recommendations. He suggests we visit the nearby bookstore Phoenix íní Dragon, which sounds more like a Chinese restaurant to me. In fact, Iím getting hungry just thinking about it! Heís an interesting character, but thatís probably true of most of the patrons of the Phoenix íní Dragon.
