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 thatís ridiculously popular.

Poured no head on a clear amber colored body.

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. Itís a decent IPA, but itís nothing special

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Amazed at the low ratings on this one--North Coast has always been good to me. When I crack it, I know why. This one is golden and slightly hazy, with a thin foamy white head. Nose is light and fruity, with pear and tropical fruit syrup. Not much hopping to speak of. Taste has an odd savory aspect to it that transitions into dry, mineral and pale malt. A touch of herbal hops, honey, and more pear on the finish. Thin and overcarbonated.

12oz bottle - pours an opaque deep gold with white head. Nose is hay/straw or straw/hay. Flavor adds grass and citrus with a small malty backbone. Watery but flavorful. Moderately bitter. Refreshing. I know understand the low ratings.
