2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Keg @ 612. Light amber, small head. Nose is light melon, more caramel malt. Very meek, almost the absence of aroma. Taste is sort if sharp. Woody bitterness and butterscotch. Peach skin, if I’m being charitable. Medium body, soft carb. Forgettable.

Tap at George and the Dragon. Orange with a thin off-white head. Lemons, peach, grass and malts. Taste was lightly sweet with a lemony finish. Body was medium with a slick feel. Easy drinking pale ale, would be a good summer beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewery taproom. Smooth mild fruit nose. Dark amber color. Solid peachy / caramel initial / minimal bittering / finish is like the sweet milk left after the Cheerios have been eaten. Thin-medium body. Decent balance but not a lot of here here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice looking pale amber yellow. Aroma is some hops, and sweet grain. Taste is mildly sweet, clean, drinkable with a mildly bitter finish. Pretty light all around, but better than your typical pale lager.

Plain jane. golden color. The hopping levels here are very low indeed, making this inoffensive but weak. Some sweetness appears later on, with a hint of citrus. But below average in the crowded world of APAs. (on tap at brewpub)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap at APN 2013, slightly hazy yellow-orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, floral, and herbal notes, slight lemon in there, biscuit and bread come through as well. Taste is a mix of slight biscuit, bread, slight grass, earthy and spicy hops going into more biscuit, finishing bitter, dry. Not bad, but lacking in depth.
