2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On the Eighth Day of Christmas 2013 the beer gods gave to me . . . one terrible pale ale. Wow. North Coast is behind this debacle? Has a nice golden pale orange haze with white foam head but goes downhill from there. A skunky aroma with a malt bomb, rusty taste. Drain pour.

Bottle into shaker. Decent pillowy head, clear amber, swirling carbonation. Caramel malt aroma. Flavor of light honey with metallic aftertaste. Thin, sweet finish. Not a bad experience, Overall just OK.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: light copper gold. Clear and poor head. Almost stale. Wet malt or wheat husk, dank yeast leas. Malt dominated. Sweet, not sour and moderate to low bitterness. Low carbonation but citrus flavors. Almost commercial. Not challenging.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color of this beer is a slightly hazy golden with a medium white head, and the aroma blends a slight skunkiness, sweet bread malts, and floral hops. The taste is a touch bitter, touch sweet, and slightly sour, and the palate combines a medium body, average carbonation, abrupt finish, and a slick texture. Not that bold or crazy, but this brew is quite drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Serpico. Pours a hazy gold with medium, deminishing, off-white head and some soapy lace. Nose of caramel, some faint citrus and pine. Sweet, mostly caramel malt. Medium body. Not a hoppy apa at all, very mild bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Pale amber with a slight haze and low diminishing foam. Cushy aromas of warm grains and fruitcake. Taste of apple and caramel precedes a lively minerality. Finish leaves a slight coagulant feel common to session beers fermented with a particular American Ale yeast that’s ridiculously popular.

White head on amber yellow body. Aroma is sweet citrus. Flavour tends to the malt side with a speedy lightly bitter finish. Acme, the choice of coyotes everywhere.

Poured no head on a clear amber colored body.
The aroma is wet grain with some fruitiness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A perfectly serviceable pale ale. Not the best, but I would drink this again, no problem. Typical malty/bready flavor with spicy hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours copper with a white head. Hops aroma with bitter/sweet notes. The taste follows the aroma and is bitter/sweet. It is medium in body with a sticky, bitter finish. It’s a decent IPA, but it’s nothing special
