4oz on tap at the brewpub. Clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Thicker sheets of lace. Looks good. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish, more slick though. Moderate-plus bitter taste, moderate sweet. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. A very nice, hoppier pale ale overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at Asheville Pizza and Brewing Company (Merrimon Ave), 1/3/15
Aroma: This one has a mild nose of pale malts, and some light hops
Appearance: Pours a clear orange, with an off white head, and medium-plus lace
Flavor: It has a light hop flavor, is also light sweet, with some spice notes
Palate: It has a fairly light body, and closes with a long, somewhat dry finish
I thought this was a pretty decent one, but nothing too exciting or memorable.

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.

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.
