On tap @ Flannery’s, Milwaukee, enjoyed while watching the night game after seeing the Packers win at Lambeau. Fruity hops, lightly sweet malts, very drinkable. Thank God this was on tap, because most of the other beer choices were pretty poor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best by 5/18/13, just getting to this in time. Received in a recent BIF box. 12 oz. bottle served in a Westbrook tulip.
A: Pours a golden orange color with a thick and frothy put white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thick cap that leaves sticky sheets of lace down the glass.
S: Floral notes with a dried grass backing. Toasted grains with some light citrus notes. Not a whole lot going on, but it’s solid.
T: Same as the nose. Dried glass with a light floral aspect to it. The citrus notes are slightly sweet with a grainy sweetness on the finish as well. Very mild bitter aspect to it, but the finish is pretty is clean.
M: Light bodied with a nice medium carbonation level. Highly drinkable with a clean finish.
O: The flavors aren’t going to knock your socks off, but it’s nicely balanced and highly drinkable. This is like a "dumbed-down" Daisy Cutter. A solid brew that I could enjoy a few pints of on a hot day like today.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft The pale ale poured a hazy golden ale with a thin white head. the aroma was resin like with ahint of citrus. The taste was of bitter resin and citrus hops. This was a very flavorful pale ale more like an IPA. The medium body pale ale had average carbonation. Nice finish with a mouthful of resin like hops. This was on tap at The Bar in Appleton while watching the Alabama game.

Draught sample @Ale Asylum + shared pitcher @Wisconsin Student Union 04ix13. Easy-drinking APA with unidimensional Cascade leafy citrus hop profile and still clement piney notes. Not hard to see why this is one of the best-selling craft beers of the region, although for multiple tasting it could do with some more body and malt character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a deep amber with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was very citrusy - grape fruit - a slight malt sweetness in the background. Taste was similar - citrus (grape fruit) and slightly piney with malt background and moderate to low hop bitterness. Palate was decent. Overall, a very nice pale ale - great hoppy flavor without the scorched earth bitterness that often can accompany these.
