3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours from 12 oz can medium coppery hue, nice craggley head of foam. Aroma caramel malts, earth, field grass with bready dank. Flavour lightly bitter floral citrus hop taste, herbal and grassy, perfectly balanced with light pale malts with a little sweetness. Malt seems to dominate, not too terribly bad APA.

For the style, very beguiling, and one of the better ones. Quite complex -- solid malt backbone, but there’s some sort of slight sweetness -- fruity? citrusy? -- mixing in there, too. Hops of course are there, in balance, and ends with a satisfying slight bitterness.

Bottle. Medium golden pour, slightly cloudy, substantial lasting head with good lacing. Aroma is mild malt and hop with minor citrus notes. Flavor is a nice balance of malt and hops, with a surprising level of resinous taste. Finish is fairly bitter for a pale ale, and it lingers quite a while. Overall, pretty refreshing pale and the pushes into IPA territory. Solid.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of HypoLuxa at Asahiya.. A lovely golden copper pour with a foamy beige head with staying power. A great tropical fruit hop bouquet wafts from the glass. Medium full bodied with a zesty mouthfeel like a spritzer. The taste is well-balanced between fruity hops, piney notes & biscuity malts. Love the label love & the flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber thanks to michaelinwa. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a small foamy head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma is very nice. Nice mix of citrus, pine, and grass hops with a big bready and biscuity malt base. The hops are more subdued in the taste. Nice malty sweetness up front and a light bitterness in the finish. Big biscuity taste throughout with some nice citrus fruit and dry hops. Crisp finish. My kinda pale ale.
