3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at La Taverna In Kunshan. Pours a very nice copper hue that’s hazy. Pure white head lasts and body has moderate bubbling. Aroma is floral, hoppy, bittersweet and fruity. Taste is bitter malt and light citrus. A real treat after miles of tasteless lagers traveling all over China. Leaves intricate white lace on the glass. Its a decent beer by American standards but numerical rating may reflect withdrawal from availability of good beer. This tastes so fine right now I’m tempted to clean the restaurant out and fill my suitcase to avoid the tsingtao and snow plague in the next town.

It is a pretty normal beer. Light body and light carbonation. High drinkability, but nothing special.

Average pale ale, west coast style, malt driven. Easy drinking. Sessionable but not outstanding.

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.
