3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is light and mellow with notes of toffee, brown sugar, and a touch of citrus. The appearance is oily and caramel colored with a very thin white ring that eventually dissappears and leaves no lace. It’s a taste blend of medium bitter and sweet. The texture is thin and oily with a light carbonation and a medium malt body. Toffee, grain, and citrus flavors comes through first, followed by a roasty, grain and caramel finish. A bready aftertaste lingers lightly.

Good bready, toasty malt, light caramel. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good, easy-drinking texture. Nice pale ale, very satisfying.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent lighter copperish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of mildly bitter hops and pale malt with a touch of grain. Tastes like it smells with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad, but grandpa’s APA.

On tap at the brewery. Pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma is of ripe fruit, bready and caramel malt, hints of citrusy hops. Body is medium and crisp. Herbal, piney hops are balanced on the palate by bready and caramel malt and hints of fruit. Finish is long and bitter. This brew is more like amber ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft in a sampler at Barley’s #1. Pours a fairly dark color for a pale ale, more of a cloudy brown-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, toasted malts, cereal, and earth. Flavor follows suit for the most part; balance of citrus and toast. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation. Not a bad pale ale, and a unique take on the style.
