3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of citrusy hop, perhaps a hint of pine. Tarnished brass color with a substantial head that sticks. Even a bit a lacing. Starts with a soft citrus character, decent mouthfeel, might be a hint of sweetness in the middle, but all ends well with a light persisting bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a slightly chill hazed golden color with a thin layer of white foam that sticks around and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass.
S: There isnít much of a nose on this beer. Some citrus and grassy hops and perhaps a bit of malt.
T: A pleasant citrus hop flavor without any real bitterness. The malt is present, but not overly sweet. There is a slight earthiness to the finish.
M: The body is medium but perhaps a bit on the thin side. The carbonation level is moderate. It has a nice crispness to it, especially when cold.
D: Nothing particularly outstanding about this beer, but itís a good session pale ale. Low alcohol content and a crisp finish would be nice on a warm day.

Golden colour with some haze, starts with a nice citrussy nose but with a little bit of cardboard. Again, in the mouth, there is a plaeasnt hops and citrus dancing together, but there seems to be some oxidation. Still a rather pleasant beer
