3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 355ml bottle on 22/7/2015. Pours a clear light golden with a medium white head. Has a slight lemony aroma. Flavour wise, thereís some light bready malt, and a sharp, slightly spicy lemony bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. This is an odd one - it has a bit of character but doesnít real come together.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Unfiltered hazy golden appearance. Smells bready/malty mostly, with some hops and floral notes. Mouthfeel is more abrasive than I expected. Taste is just OK. Not in love with this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lovely dark golden pour w/ a big white head that leaves excellent lacing. The aroma is slightly faint for the style w/ the malts & breadiness standing out. The taste is really clean & crisp. Thereís a minute hop undertone that sort of lingers after the finish. It has a really nice mouthfeel & overall Is a solid & drinkable brew!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
First time trying this today from a bottle (pack date 10/20/14). As expected, a clear yellow beer with a white head. I wasnít sure how to describe the taste/aroma until I saw another comment that said "grapefruit, lemon, crusty bread" which says it perfectly. Also strong bitterness, but not hoppy bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is an under appreciated beer in my opinion. Itís way less hoppy than most pale ales on the market these days...but itís still very good. Pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Taste is light with a slight bitter hop flavor and a crisp malty sweetness. The malt is really at the forefront of this beer, and it almost has a lager sort of character to it. Light body. Overall a nice spring/summer session ale thatís well balance. If youíre looking for a pale ale that is a little less hopped...this is a perfect choice.
