2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at brewery. Quite hoppy. A little sweet. Medium bodied. Not bad but pretty one-note and nothing I’d go back for.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells of mild hops with a pretty big pale malt backbone and some light biscuit. Tastes like it smells, but with more biscuit. Average on the palate. Either an old keg, grandpa’s APA, or both.

A great pale ale. Hoppy, with a clean finish. Definitely a beer you can have on its own or with a meal.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Bier. Pours a nice pale amber with a sticky off white head that persists. Nose is resiny and full of hops. Some citrus notes and a toasty malt profile overall, faint caramel? On tasting, really clean and fresh, well balanced. Upper tier APA here. Solid.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated hazy dark yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was mild hop. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of citrus and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden orange pour with white head and above average lacing. Aromas of pine, spruce, peppery, and some citrus. Taste is bitter with some light sweetness. Has a light body with a dry finish. Overall, a good beer with solid flavor that makes it very drinkable. Great session beer.

A very solid pale ale. Good balance of hops and malts with a great mild bitterness. A very sessionable beer that would go well with almost anything.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average creamy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bitterswwet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Stopped at the brewery to check it out and did a full tasting. This one was my preference and picked up a growler. It has a nice citrus flavor that shines through. Probably the best local pale ale shy of Alpha King. I hope Bier tries to get hoppier and push the citrus and pine flavor boundaries to truly stand put from the pack. The growler was not cheap, so it will take something more enticing to get me to come back, given the fresh Bells, Founders, and 3 Floyds available in this market.
