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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The scent of malt is really faint here. I took a few deep whiffs and caught some orange peel in there, but again, really faint. The brew is a pale amber, a shade deeper than a pilsner gold. The head is white and thins pretty quickly. The taste is pretty clean, not very dynamic, but it has a lightly sweet singularity. It is paler than pale, lighter than light. It’s crisp, tastes fine, but there’s not much character. There’s mild carbonation burn on the palate with every sip, but it’s not bad. There’s a thing filminess left behind. Not bad, but only a little more interesting than a Coors Banquet Beer.

On tap at Buffalo Bar, Brisbane. Golden with more malt on nose than hops, ucommon for APA’s these days. A nice combination of malts for the tastebuds and a bit of spice on the palate.
