2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours a nearly clear, light coppery body with a smallish, white head.
Smell: Sweetish aroma with a smidgen of caramel and perceived fruitiness backed by some toastiness.
Taste: Pale malts, toasted grains and a little lingering powdered sugar accent. Medium bitterness, with floral, lightly citrusy, earthy hops. Remains still a bit sweetish even on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-light carbonation. A bit on the thin side, bordering on watery.
Overall: Fairly humdrum, though a few of the cans worked in a pinch snatched up at Publix to pre-game in the parking lot for the Pearl Jam show in Greenville, SC last weekend.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours clear golden, thin white lacing. Aroma of light fruit and mine, bread, and caramel. Fairly faint overall with no one aspect dominating. Medium sweet taste. Light body, thin texture, dry hopped well with a light medium dry bitter finish. Hints of the sweet malt are present as well. Nice session APA.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Good appearance with nice head, slightly floral flavor, mild aroma. Too much CO2 at initial taste (sting), settles down to a drinkable ale

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear medium amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Very light nose of biscuit and hops.
Light body with a texture that has smooth moments. Below normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the finish.
The flavor profile is good, in a lawn mower or session sense, albeit not very complex. You get a modest hop flavor accompanied with a modest pine/rind bitterness over a modest biscuit sweetness with a hint of caramel. The finish lingers with a rind note.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer is a light copper brew with a firm head of white bubbles. Nose is mild pine needle hops and maybe a bit of metallic aspect. The taste is slightly sweet with a bit of hops at the first taste, but then broadening to a cloying sweetness in the middle. finishing to a bit of a metallic bitter aftertaste. Body is lively.
