2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, best by 2nd week of June 2013. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours clear amber with a one finger white head that leaves a ring and a light sheet of lacing and holds a good foamy cap.
Aroma is dough, yeast, grainy, earthy, dirty with some floral hops, some notes of cardboard. Gets better as it warms, but still not great. A little off.
Flavor is bready, doughy malt, some caramel, some earthy hops, hint of citrus, somewhat sweet, good bitterness, minimal alcohol, finishes sweet. Gets more and more sweet as it warms.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, with good carbonation.
OK. And that may be a stretch. Average at best.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 12 oz. Clear burnt orange with a lasting quarter inch of meringue. Nose is toasted earthy dog biscuit with touches of resin, white grape, eucalyptus, and lemon honey. Taste is the same combination, but thankfully after a few sips the wet dog and grain begins to take a back seat. An increasing resin citrus and yeast presence dries the whole thing well. Quality brew with some complexity for a pale ale, but also a bit bipolar and all over the map from sip to sip. At its best it reminds me a bit of a low-abv tripel. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is dry. Give this one 4-6 oz. to develop some flavor (at keller temperature of course) and it becomes a good session ale.

On tap at the brewery. Bright amber. Nice lacing. Fruity, spicy aroma. Light sweetness, tempered by a hint of bitterness. Very easy to drink. I really liked this and found it sessionable.

Clear orange color with slight white lacing. This beer has a clean toasted aroma with a slight hop feel. Smooth clean palate with crisp hop finish indicative of the English style. Good use of this base malt and give me some fish and chips.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bronzed body, ring of head. Cardboardy English hop nose followed by a similar flavor. Stale, but with moments of fruitiness. Not a fan.
