4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Baxter Pamola XTRA Pale Ale has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, lots of thick lacing down the glass, a few streaming bubbles, and a hazy, orange-gold appearance, which becomes hazier when the bottom of the can is swished and poured in. The aroma is of grapefruit, sugary malts, and white bread. Taste is of grapefruit, sugar, malt, and bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Pamola XTRA finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and lager like in itís somewhat flinty ending. Overall, this is excellent, and I strongly suggest giving it a try.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can shared by Dr. Silverworm. Poured clear pale color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

Sampled at the 2012 Portland Brew Festival. Deliciously hoppy and a really good hop-malt balance.

12oz can, thanks to parents. Canned 9/6/12. Nice lemon note to this, along with the satisfying fresh citrus hop flavor. Super smooth soft, lighter carbonation and dry texture, great mouthfeel. Great zestiness, light bitter. Thin white head leaves good lace. Mostly hazy flat yellow color. Definitely fresh-tasting.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft Portland Brewfest. Clear golden color with a small white head. Carbonated well. Nose of grain and weak floral hops. Flavor of light pale malt, subtle light hops. I donít like being real negative about somebodyís brew; I will simply say that this was to light and bland of my taste.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brownish amber color... nice two finger head. Aromas and flavors are malty nutty and a touch caramel sweetness. Hay, graham cracker all balanced out by slight touches of hoppy bitterness .

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Southern New Hampshire Brewers Fest. Enjoyed in a 2 ounce glass. Light gold appearance, no head. Smell is very effervescent. Belgian yeast sort of smell, saaz hops, centennial hops. Up front wheat and burnt malts. Some melted candies like butterscotch. Pecans. Itís sort of nutty and toffee like. Light body.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a darker copper color. Aroma is full of malts and hops. Honestly it doesnít really have anything special that sticks out, well maybe the stale and moldy basement aromas that also come out. Flavor is pretty much the same....malts, hops and mildew basement. Just very unpleasant. This could possibly be in the top 10 worst beers ever for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden, pale orange pour. Thick creamy head. Aroma is light spicy hops with a creamy, fruity depth. Strong apricot. Promises to be very refreshing. Light apricot flavor hits the tongue first, with the signature earthy dryness that comes with the fruity sweetness. Nice thick creamy mouthfeel. Light enough to be a serious summer quaffer, but with a real nice creamy palate preventing it from getting watery. Fruit slips into light spice and bitterness. Very mild bitterness mostly disappears in the finish, but not in a phantom kind of way. It just washes out clean. Not wildly complex, but just right for the style. I really think this would make a better summer beer than most wheat ales. Reminds me a bit of Oberon in that itís got body and flavor, but is totally clean and drinkable.
