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.

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

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was purchased in bottle at the Blockcade Runner on Wrightsville Beach. The full bodied ale was a modest APA. Small head that laced down the glass. The clear color of amber was very inviting. This ale had excellent balance of malts and hops. It could have more hops. We were watching the US tie England in their first game of group C.
