2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled at the brewpub. It poured an amber/tan color with an off-white head. The aroma was of caramel with some bread and light hops. The taste was similar with a little maltiness in the backend.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster at the Coxe Ave brewpub. Looks decent; malty though. A transparent copper with off-white head. Smells malty too; sweet pale malt and some hops. Getting close to cloying on the nose. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as sweet. Average on the palate. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Comes out of the tap a dark amber with a respectable pale tan head. Malty aroma has a strong hoppy note that pushes it towards an IPA. Flavor is more hoppy than malty, somewhat bitter, rather IPA-ish. Texture is fizzy and smooth, if not firm. 828 is Asheville’s area code - I got your number right here!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap with a movie at Merrimon location. One of my favorites from these guys. Pours really dark for a pale- almost amber with a thick white head. Taste is on the sweet side at first with a mouthfeel that flirts with too heavy for a pale. Interesting hop profile- tames the sweetness and works well with the darker malts. Enough hops to be interesting but still finishes smooth. Really good.

Tap at he Merrimon location. Copper, frothy beige head. Smells sweet, with some perfumy hops (and a touch of butter) Taste is toasty malts (like maybe oatmeal cookie) and a woody, piney hop finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep amber brown on tap with thin ring of off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is very light hop presence with a caramel bready make overtone. Taste follows, light and unimpressive. Meh, perhaps it’s old, all the hops are gone.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very hoppy on the smell. Smooth. Looks great. Good head. Nice red amber color. Taste is a little hoppy. A little malty. A little light and water on the palate. Finish is smooth.
I had low expectations looking at the other beers but this was an amazing beer. Exactly what a pale ale should be.
