12-ounce bottle. Batch number 3. Pours a dense dark amber with no head. Odd malty and hoppy aroma. Medium body with mediocre mouthfeel. Hop over malt flavor. Not well blended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. Interesting aroma - hops, cooked veggies and soap. Clear amber with white head. I taste spruce backed with piney grassy hops, citrus, burnt malt, grass, honey. Not a big fan of spruce but it is fairly drinkable. Unique.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a regular bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a murky amber/dark gold color with an average-sized foamy white head that had shorter retention, and modest cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a mix of grainy and citrus hops along with some sour barley and pine scents. The taste was a sour and bitter blend of citrus and earthy flavors with a bit of cereal and touch of banana. It had a fairly light and thin mouthfeel with somewhat low carbonation and life and a slightly watery character.

Not a bad brew, some hops,but nothing overwhelming, fruity for a pale, some apple, malt flavor, drinkable, better than a few pales I’ve had. Nice find at the .99 Cent store.

12oz bottle from Jungle Jim’s in Eastgate, shared with Jstax towards the end of a long day of ticking. Mostly clear amber color. Lots of yeast particles make it hazy. Minimal off-white head. Medium body. Smooth, softer, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. More bitter taste. Minimal sweet. Caramel malt, light spiciness. OK pale, nothing exemplar.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a very sharp aroma for a pale ale. Seems to have more accent on the malts. The flavor is really similar to a red ale. spicy with notable, but not prevalent, hops.
