2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a foggy golden copper with a small (1 finger or less) off white creamy head that receded down to a thin film with a small collar and had good streaky lacing.
The aroma was somewhat mild with a light grain malt, floral hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was also mild with a lightly sweet malty taste and a hint of caramel at first, and then became lightly hoppy with a touch of citrus at the end. The flavor hung on for a good long while, with a slight increase in bitterness and a more pronounced citrus peel presence as time went on.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a light and decent tasting Pale Ale, although the increase in the citrus peel bitterness sort of changed the overall flavor of this brew...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is caramel, then barnyard and lemon.
The taste is caramel sweetness, spice and lemon bitterness, a touch grassy.
The texture is crisp.
It has a strong spice and grass flavor, which could be off-putting.
