3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 On tap at Avery brewpub, where it was called something other than what RB has here - 3points session ale, I think. This was a totally superior light summer ale. It is hoppy and easy on the malts, with a low ABV - very fresh and tasty, with a little citrus and pine. Excellent - and not like any other brew that I can think of.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on tap at the Avery Taproom on 9/28/2012. This American Pale Ale pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, fruity and hoppy. A medium to light bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Nice balance. Good carbonation. A touch of grain, some malts and some hops is a very nicely mixed. Definitely a good session ale. Very nice crisp and dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is a lingering slight bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Looks, smells, and drinks like a bitter pale ale with pine and a dry malt backbone. Clean mouthfeel. There’s a lot of taste in here for a low ABV beer - well done.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clearish dark gold with a nice persistent foamy white head. Grassy hop aroma with a touch of earthiness on the nose. Flavor has a really light body, though has a full and pleasant flavor. Smooth grassy leafy hop taste with a mellow sweetness from some grainy cereal notes. Nice bitterness from a beer so small, but that fresh lupulin-y tone gets annoying after a while.
