2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Unusual slightly hazy light brown color. Estery, yeasty aroma with earthy/mushroomy hops, some honey notes. Very British. Flavor is crisp, lightly sweet with more dissipating hoppy flavors, moderate yeast, some floral aspects. Quite bitter finish, prickly carbonation. Not a fan of the yeast used here or the hop, apparently.

Key Food, Prospect Heights ($10.49): Pours a golden color with a frothy white head. British-like piny hops aroma leading me to the assumption that it as at least partly modeled on British style IPAs (the few that I’ve had). Quite hoppy and bitter with citrus notes throughout. Sessionable, but also very flavorful. A good, well-balanced brew.

Drank from a pint glass poured out of the bottle. Nice hazy golden pour. Fresh floral citrus hop aroma. Taste is at first a light malt moutful that fades nicely into a refreshingly crisp hoppy finish. Solid pale ale

$9.49/6 pack. Gabriels. San Antonio, TX. Golden orange beer with a medium size head. The aroma has its own kind of grain scent. It really reminds me of the Steam just a little bigger. The taste has a nice delicate citrus hop taste, pepper, with a low to medium bitterness in the end. This really is a balanced beer.
