3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dull orange color, very clear, and with a rocky head of fine bubbles that slips away quickly.
Aroma is restrained with a balanced caramel, crispy biscuit malt, light floral hop notes with a very slight herbal edge.
Taste is lightly malty in the front, with a delicate grassy bitterness balancing the malt. Very clean finish with a floral aftertaste. ACPA has kind of a blond ale taste. Nothing not to like. Comforting, like a favorite pair of shoes.
Feel is watery and smooth. Lightly bodied with lower carbonation.
This is an interesting pale. Starts like a blond. Finishes like an English. A good beer to use as an introduction to beers of better flavor than the macros.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with small, frothy, diminishing, white head. Biscuity, malty aroma with cautious honey touch, vegy, yeasty overtones, some orange zest. Taste is minimally sweet fruity, hints of orange and mandarine, light body, slightly watery. Loveless, anaemic, refutes any positive prejudice about California (concerning beer, of course, not e.g. the weather).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Pours a honey-color, a bit hazy with a pretty good-sized head that dissipates and leaves just a bit of lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty and faintly citrus. Taste is also malty, citrus, slight bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Light bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pure malt garbage. No hoppy flavor and is just a terrible tasting beer. Pours light orange in color. Smells malty. Had at Carolina ale house on Charlotte.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is light citrus, tangerines and a hint of fresh leaves. The taste is classic American Pale Ale, but maybe a bit on the lower side of everything? A little biscuity, slightly toasted malts with mild pine and vague lemon peels. A pretty dry aftertaste. It’s refreshing, but not the coolest one around.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Clear gold. Thick, lasting, white head. Pale, lager malt aroma. A little fruit salad. Taste is light sweet. Hint of bitter. Clean, fresh palate. Finishes a little dry. Sweet close. Not the tastiest beer, but quite refreshing, and easy drinking.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
"a tiny bit better than others in the acme line, but still a slightly below average pale ale. not enough balance in the beer, the hops are ok, but they have no other presence to play off of."
