Bitter burst of citrus and honey initially, then settling to an utterly forgettable McPaleAle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells mildly of hops. Pale gold color, bubbly white head. Has some good malt sweetness and moderate hops but it tastes mostly watered down. Really easy to drink but it honestly is one of the most watered down pales I’ve had. Not a winner.

Pours a clear gold with white head. Grain, hops, citrus, and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Easy to drink beer, but quite uninteresting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 Botled, consumed on 10/18/07. Pours a clear, pale gold. Head is white and made up of fine white bubbles. Fades rapidly to a ring around the edges and a thin skin on the center. Sweet citrus hops in the nose with a hint of malt and resin underneath. Thin but smooth, it slides into the mouth easily. Maltier than I expected, almost like a red or amber ale, with sweet honey notes. Astringent with mild bitterness as it goes down, the aftertaste lives on in a tingly patch in the center of the tongue. Very mild grapefruit hop note lingers as well. After beer warms, I would be fooled if someone handed me a glass of this and said it was Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I might not buy another bottle, but it’s a fine drinking beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Cloudy dark yellow with an overwhelming head. The head dissipated slowly leaving brussels lace stranded on the glass. The aroma was sweet yet sour, both floral and fruity. The taste was soft and refreshing but nothing memorable or worth trying again. The carbonation hits you first followed by little else.

Hazy light golden color with a small, but long lasting, white head. Mild aroma of lemony citrus hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is also of lemony hops. Finish is pretty dry and bitter.
