3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This brew pours a clear copper-orange color with a medium thick and frothy white head that diminishes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, floral hops and citrus. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, hops, and fruit. The finish is sweet with a lingering malty aftertaste. Above average all around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper pour big head. Aroma of malt, honey yeast, spicy flowers.
Tastes solidly malty. Rye bread, nutty flavors are present with a firm hop bitterness and a firm acidic component. Seems like a very light brown ale in flavor. Very well balanced.

7 Seas Brewing – Gig Harbor, WA
Good malt and hops aroma. Malt was earthy with the bittering of the hops this was a great British ale. Golden in color and clear. Strong bitter hops made this a great finish. Has very much a ESB flair. The earthy flavors where interesting also. Do we have a new style?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz pint can, purchased at the Beer Authority in Lake City, Seattle. A little bit of gunk seemed to have seeped out of the top lid. Pour is almost entirely clear golden orange with a well formed two inch white head the falls slowly with foam and lacing. Aroma is mild cereal grain, along with soft floral hop and a whisper of lemon sourness. Mostly clean, the seepage did not seem to impact the nose. Taste is the toasted cereal grain, along with some breadiness and the floral hop character of the nose. Finishes dry, almost dusty. A touch of the sour shows up in the aftertaste, and disappears completely as it warms. Palate is medium, a bit mouth coating, nice prickly carbonation. This has a nice drinkable body to it, nice.

Can from Whidbey Beer Works. Pours light copper with a 3 finger foamy off-white head. Aroma is floral over light caramel. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is very light caramel, almost pale malt, with some mild florality. Finish is quite dry. Bitter is not strong. It’s arguably over the pond stuff. Drinks well.

Tap. Light almost too light and yellow for a pale but a nice head. Aroma is floral and fruity yeast. Flavor is toast and yeast with some light bitter and floral hops. Clean beer flavors but a little boring.

Pint can. Pours copper with a medium, bubbly head. The aroma is honey, floral hops, pine, and corn. The flavor is mild bitterness and a good malty sweetness. Medium body, with a velvety, silky feel. Overall, this is a good, well balanced pale ale. Nothing special or complex, but tasty.

16 oz can from By the Bottle, consumed as a shower beer(!) before a World Cup match this summer. Yellow pour, small white head and not much lacing. Smelt of light floral and citrus hops with some light biscuit malt. Really not that much aroma at all. Tasted of floral hops, lemon and biscuit with a thin mouthfeel. Not an awful beer, but not all that great either
