3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very well executed color (copper amber), lacing, aroma and texture. Pours with an exemplary head and immediately reeks of fine, quality ingredients. The taste starts citrusy with hints of caramel, but the hops soon take over, in a welcome, lasting rush of nicely calibrated bitterness. A very fine pale ale whose quality far exceeds the shoddy design and print job of the can from which it was poured.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Never a good sign when brewers aren’t even aware of their own culture...How can you name a beer Full Nelson that seemingly has so Nelson Sauvin hops in it? Has that earthy caramel and NW hops tone going on, tastes like a beer from 15 years ago. I would have been more disappointed had a I picked up a sixpack instead of a single. Drab and unenticing. Some earthy onion/garlic hops tones.

Pours dark gold pale, huge white head. Aroma is fruity, juicy, citrusy. Surpising balance of fruity hops and soft malt, with a bit of bitter kick on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great flavor...I love the choice of hops. Could be just a little more crisp. A little heavy on caramel (I prefer the use of a malty rather than sweet grain...like Vienna).
