3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow, light colored sudsy head. Very nice looking beer. Smells like a good beer should, a good bit of hops with some malts to back it up. I really enjoyed this beer. It would be great for a session beer as it goes down extremely easy, but not in a too light/watery way. This is a great example of what a pale should be. Enough hops but not enough to make it a slow drinker, and just the right amount of sweetness to balance those hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light orange pour with moderate foamy light cream-color head. Aroma is on the hoppy side - mostly citrus and some light pine. Taste is a pleasant balance of bready malt and citrus hops, not as hoppy as the nose indicated it would be. Dry somewhat bitter finish. Nicely balanced brew that goes down quite easy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
spruce, citrus, golden, clear, white foam, frothy, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter
Initial hop burst of citrus/spruce which fades fast. Malt is balanced with bitterness quite well for a mild effect. Pours golden with decent white foam that persists well. Mouth feel is slick, slightly soapy, with a mildly bitter finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Quite a floral nose and taste. Bitter aftertaste, with lingering malt aftertaste. Perfect with crisps or nuts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This may be the best ale I have tried. Pour a cloudy golden color with a nice sized white head. The aroma is hoppy. The flavor is also of hops and may I add just the correct amount. Very nice brew.

golden orange pour with a nice thick head that faded quickly. floral aroma that was a little weaker than i'd like. hoppy (although certainly not *heavily* hopped) with a slightly bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light orange color, thin and quickly dissipating white head - Aroma: Light fruity aroma, hints of flowers and resin, citrus hops, biscuits and corn / grains in the aftertaste - taste is slightly sweet an bitter at first and gets more bitter towards the end, resulting in a rather dry finish - medium to full body, creamy, maybe even frothy, nevertheless crisp and fresh texture, average carb.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice hoppy aroma. Pours golden amber with a moderate head. Not much lacing. Head thins and clings to the side of the glass. Nice hop flavor with considerable bittering hops. Good middle addition of flavor hops. Fruity and tart with a floral touch. Typical of American Pale ales with a bit more carbonation. And being around since 1975...it’s no pretender

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
355ml bottle. Pale gold to deep gold colour with suspended sediment. A towering, dense, creamy head with a buttery tinge. Wonderful head retention and some lovely lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops, biscuit, peach, honey and some caramel. Light to medium bitterness and light sweetness. Light to medium body, smooth texture; a wonderful mouthfeel. The finish is semi-dry but still managers to linger with a beautiful balance between the sweetness and the bitterness. A cracker of a beer.
