3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Pretty dark for a pale ale. Amber/brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, honey. Hops are surprisingly subdued, though present. Taste is smooth, sweet, semi-bitter. Malty, honey. Subtle hops. The definition of a good but nothing more pale ale. Nothing bad I can say about it but certainly nothing exceptional.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
ReRate from 2/10/02: I didnít give this enough props before! I just had it again this weekend and I was reminded of how good it is! VERY Hoppy, gives that slight stinging tounge sensation. A bit too carbonated - but still really excellent.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
tap at smokehouse- pretty nice offering- very drinkable fruit and hop flavors- certainly balanced towards the hop, but fits the bill nicely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a small white head. This beer has that same "stale" hop taste that Bass has. I donít mean "stale" in a bad way though. It just tastes different making it stand out from others. So, I guess this is a pretty distinct pale ale then. It was higher hopped than other pale ales I have had, making it very enjoyable. I will drink again!

Bland, not much taste good or bad. To me there was nothing overly fantastic about this APA. It did linger a little too long on the tongue though.

Dark amber color, thin white head. Nice pine and citrus hop aroma. Same hops in flavor with solid malt character, slightly sweet. Medium body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft@ Smokehouse. This poured a dark ruby orange. Lightly and refreshingly hopped with a sweet caramel malt aroma. This beer has some cirtus character to it, but nothing too strong. Slightly above average for a pale ale.

Draft at the brewpub. Fresh, wellmade pale ale. Very enjoyable and reliable, just not very memorable.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good malt and hop aroma with hops to the forefront. Balance of malt and hops but not enough bitterness (even by english standards). Fermented dry finish leaves a winey character. More of a warm finish than a hoppy or dry finish.
