2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Every pale ale Iíve poured is a coppery color like this one. This is on the hazy side with a small head, but good lacing. Aroma consists of cloves, hops and citrus. Nice crisp aftertaste and good carbonation. Weak bodied, but refreshing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2006 From the bottle.
Pours golden-amber, moderately clear with a adequate but short-lived head.
The aroma is limited. Palate is watery; the flavor is sweet, almost insipid, for a pale ale, with a late hit of very modest hop bitterness.
Nothing to drink here, move along...

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle 12 oz. Almost clear lt. golden, small head that died quick, almost no lace. Aroma is creamy light roast malt w moderate hops. Flavor is semi sweet lt roast malt w light hops, just a touch sharp & harsh, (like it wasnít stored properly or was old). Pushing medium bodied. There was a noticable bitterness on the finish.

Very orange pour....unusual. The flavor is of hops, but strange ones at that...slightly citrusy but kind of musky. The malt has low levels of cane sugar with just a hint of unpleasant bitterness. These Acme beers seem just a bit below the quality of what North Coast is capable of, but these are interesting in their own right.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A cloudy deep golden color along the lines of apple juice. Aroma show some light hoppiness and citrus. The flavor is all hops except for a faint taste of grapefruit. Lighter in flavor than a Bass ale this didnít impress.

Bottle @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Plenty of butterscotch in this bottle. Maybe an old bottle as the price was reduced... Some papery notes as well, indicating oxidation. Quite sweet and malty for an american ale, in my oppinion.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thereís some doughy, malty sweetness in the nose, a bit of orange/citrus; lively carbonation; simple mild crystal malt flavor with a detracting metallicness; slight bittering; generally unexiting and disappointing.

Bottle Pours a slightly hazy light amber. Fluffy off white head Sweet light malts mostly in the aroma. Flavor is similar. Light, pale and fairly sweet. I suppose it is quite drinkable, esp for those who are not ken of bitter hoppy ales. Lacking substance though esp considering itís nearly complete absence of a decent hops componant.
