Pots copper/amber with an inch off-white head. Slightly fruity nose, with some pine notes - a little dough. Light to medium body, good carbonation. Thin w/ some hops in the finish. Nothing extraordinary, but a decent beer with a burger.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy gold, thin white head. Nose is grassy hops, caramel, a bit of mineral character, honey sweetness. Flavor is toffee & very light raisin malt, a bit of herbal hop bite. Some nice bitterness comes out in the finish but it is sweeter than I would like. Its a nice enough beer though - just not extremely interesting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very good everyday pale ale featuring a malty caramel profile and earthier noble hops. Definitely east coast. Pours a clear amber with a one-finger white head. Light lacing. Nose is fruity with berry notes and caramel malt. Flavor is much the same. Very balanced. Long semi-sweet finish with a slight whack of hop bitterness. this beer would work with most American-style cuisine. Well done.

Pours a clear, brown amber with a thin white head and some lacing. Citrus hop aroma with hint of wheat malts, flavor of more hops and slight bitterness in finish. Not bad for style.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear, brown amber with a thin white head. Citrus hop aroma with a little wheaty malts. Flavor is lemon citrus hops and some light caramel malts with an unfortunate metallic finish. An ok American Ale.

Uggh, very poor beer. As in pour it down the drain. Just a cheaply made lager. Metallic and stale, not good.
