High bitterness up front mellowing towards end. Just average. No head to speak of.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with a very thin white head. Aroma of flowery hops and slight caramel. Flavor was malty with a slight citrus note. Very thin and harsh.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light hop aroma, but not much aroma at all. Golden brown. Medium palate and a hint of flavor make this an incredibly underwhelming beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bottled brew born in July of 2005 poured a small sized head of light brown colored mostly lasting foamy finely sized bubbles that left behind a transparent carbonated copper brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was that of dirty dish rags with a malt hop base. The mouth feel was tingly with a mild hoppy palate that mellowed in the finish. The flavor was slightly hopped and was missing the caramel I was looking for.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a clear amber/yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is very subtle with the smallest hint of pine. The flavor is somewhat piney with a little carmel. The mothfeel is reminicant to a glass of water I had earlier. Eh.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
120z bottle yields a rich amber hue with plenty of head. aromas are that of a typical pale. hops, must, earth mainly; slight honey underneath. the taste is also typical, but i got a taste of cardboard ever-so-slightly, the purist contains a tinge of sweetness towards the finish on the mid-front palate. mouthfeel is lively, and drinkability is average. it’s not spectacular, but gives way for others to shine. it beats a few, but trails many.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I could not finish this beer and that is something rare for a college student. The smell is of yeast and that is about it. Not a lot of hop taste, it tasted like yeast again.

good flavor, but everything else about this pale ale was unimpressive to down right bad.
