3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has some malts, light hops, and some toffee detectable. Light amber pour, white head. Flavor is sweet kings Hawaiian rolls, peppery hops, fruit. Body is light, I like it. This is a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Restoration Pale Ale", 5.2% abv.
Nebuloso color giallo intenso con riflessi arancio e saponosa schiuma bianca. Aroma fruttato e luppolato simile a quello di una APA con sentori leggermente aciduli. Gusto dolciastro, maltato e delicatamente fruttato con il luppolo che passa in secondo piano; finale appiccicoso e un po’ sgradevole. Corpo medio-lieve, effervescenza nella norma, struttura parzialmente oleosa. Peccato per il retrogusto, poteva uscirne una birra semplice ma dissetante.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
@ Party Town / Bellvue KY hazy dirty orange, 1/2" head w/ good retention, stripes of lace. Aroma is pleasant hops. Taste is mild caramel malt that is somehow over-run by equally mild hops. I’m not saying there is nothing here, only that all is understated. Actually very sessionable, but would quickly grow tiresome for lack of flavor.

Pours a hazy yellow with smallish head. Light pine aroma. A little thin and lacks balance. Disappointing.

Light floral citrus and bready malt aroma and taste with a lightly bitter finish. Not much going on here.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bert’s
Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a decent sized white head and minimal lace. Aromas of pine and grapefruit are evident as soon as I pry off the cap. Bready caramel malt with a hint of sulfur provides a base for the aroma. The flavor is bready caramel with lots of light juicy fruits. Hop flavors are rather mute with a light level of hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Smells like there might be some hops, but they must have turned to fruit. Easy drinking mild pale ale that I could easily session if I weren’t always looking for more hops.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a golden color little to no head. Great smell really enjoyed the sweet aroma with a hint of hops. Sweet taste slightly bitter at the end. Enjoyed the taste at 5.2 it can be a session beer overall an ok beer from the fine folks at abita.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a cloudy golden color with a hint of copper. White quickly dissipating head with very slight lacing. A crisp hoppy start with lemony citrus notes for the finish. Fizzy and easy to drink not as much complexity as I desire but a suitable pale ale that leaves your mouth quenched and refreshed.
