3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is mild, with citrusy notes. Taste is well-balanced with some caramel malt undertones and slight citrus from the hops. Palate is clean, with a light mouthfeel. Overall a very enjoyable, classic, easy-drinking pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours gold with thin, fizzy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is oranges, floral and citrus hops, cereal, cookie, and biscuit malts, and light pear. Flavor is balanced sweet malts and grassy hops with citrus fruit esters (mostly grapefruit) and light toast; dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours deep clear gold with an off white head. The mild aroma offers up a light mix of citrus, pine and floral hops with a bit of malt sweetness in the background. The taste is similar where a style relevant pine to citrus hoppiness starts things off with a decent level of bitterness. To midway and into the finish it gets more floral hop like and then ends with a faint lime quality. Pretty nice Pale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is malts and sort of an odd, perfumed tropical fruit. The flavor is kiwi/tropical fruit, fruit/berries, mild sweetness and a hint of grassy hops in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark, clear gold with 1 finger of white head. Its malt forward and fairly tasty. Would be good to have multiple of due to the alcohol content being reasonable and it having enough flavor to keep you satisfied.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2013 Nothing crazy, but I actually thought this beer smelled pretty good. Pleasant mild citric hop aroma without some of the sticky herbal notes that can come through in American Pales. Pretty standard gold-orange color with almost two fingers of cream-colored head. Taste is light citrus to pine hops, simultaneously balanced by a malty backbone that I would have guessed to be crystal. There is a fruity finish that hits up the bitter tastebud area of the tongue (while not coming across as bitter) that I enjoyed as well. Nothing outlandish or worth writing home about here, but a decent offering. Does 5% count as sessionable?
