3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Amber body with a pale head. Solid APA with a tasty hop profile. If you see it, get one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled sample. Copper in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pale and biscuit malt, faint caramel, and a touch of spicy hops. Bready pale malts lead the way in the mouth, with a bit of light caramel and herbal hop mixed in. Moderate bitterness and fairly light bodied. Not a whole lot of hop aroma or flavour for an APA, and not dark or malty enough to be an amber either. An odd duck.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Eye-pleasing murky amber/orange. Aromas of citrus, malt and cherry hard candy. Nice gritty texture. Good bitterness from both hops and alcohol, finishing with a young wood aftertaste. Straightforward and likeable.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought at Stein’s and basically stared down all weekend at Avenue .. . Pours a light ruby/ dark gold .. medium foam, light sticky lacing .. . has a light dose of hops, some syrup and resin .. . pretty simple but for the region and the brewer, quite delightful .. . mild yet quite damn enjoyable .. . Ok, our mission failed but we learned a lot. Primarily that girls do not have balls.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not one of my favorites. It seems to be a little too bitter on the finish and it is not the tastiest either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is some bread and malt mixed with some vegetal type smell. Pours nice amber colored.
Taste is rustic pale ale, a bit malty, bit bready, bit roasted, bit hops. Finish is a pleasant lingering bitter.
Mouthfeel leaves a little to be desired as its slightly carbonated, but not tremendously so. All in all its fine, but in a raw rustic sort of way

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from ericandersnavy. Pours pale amber with a quickly disappearing beige head. Aroma is sort of aged bread with some sugary malt and floral hop. Or maybe more complicated than that. There’s a lot of malt and a lot of floral and maybe citrus hop. Actually goes a bit astringent, yet it makes me think of a light barley wine. Confusingly complicated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(12oz bottle courtesy of Fata!!) Pours hazy light copper with massive off-white head. Nice carbonation. Aroma of bread/biscuit, nice sweet florals and hard candy. Taste is sweet malt and a sharp hop bite that fades into the background allowing the malts to resurface. Medium bodied with an oily texture and bitter finish. A respectable beer here
