3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy Orange Coloring. Sweet Malt/Citrus Fruit Aroma. Medium Mouthfeel Towards Light. Sweet Malt, and Light Grain but Perhaps a Bit of Pepper in There as Well. Nice Fruity Profile on Top for a Sweet Tasting Summer Brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not actually sure if this is supposed to be an American or English Pale Ale. Feel free to change it if you are in the know. Doesn’t have a typical APA taste to it, but certainly is more bitter than a typical English Pale. Smells like a hefe with banana notes, faint hops and kiwi. Very unique aroma. Nice, lasting, tight bubble head. Cloudy golden body. Perfect lace. Tangerine, citrus and pepper on the tongue. Bitter. Has some cask-like qualities, particularly in appearance and serving temperature. This brew is unique but a little confused. Certainly worth a try, however.
