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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is initially a muted grass and grain with a touch of stone fruit (underripe apricot?) which later emits more distinct grapefruit and lemon notes combined with crusty bread. Itís a clear and dull gold color with noticeable sediment suspended in the liquid. Itís topped by a white dense soap head that has moderate retention and lace. Itís texture is oily with an active fizziness and a medium body. Roasted flavors of grain and toffee are initially noted with a citrus sweetness. The finish is crisp and long and is initially a spike of bright citrus but turns waxy bitter with a hint of marmalade that leaves behind a wax and bread crust aftertaste.
