3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ brewpub. Amber. Bright hop overtone in aroma but not dominant, it smells pretty balanced. Balanced but uneventful, easy going with a good hop finish.

Light amber. Mellow floral aroma is fairly appetizing. Mild bitterness. Floral, light bready malts on the palate. Good, balanced example.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
One of my early BA reviews.
A pale orange color with a slight haze. Bubbles rise quickly and constantly to the surface, but there is no significant head.
The smell of the glass itself seems stronger than the beer, unless the beer smells like glass. Slightly dry with a subtle bitterness. Nothing notable in terms of fruity or piney smells. Malt seems to dominate.
Dry and bitter. Malt dominates, with only (slightly lemony) bitterness giving any indication that hops were used at all. The finish is almost entirely pale malt flavor. Kind of like what you’d expect from a bottle if it were just labeled "Beer."
Medium body, but possibly just very very carbonated. Prickly in a way.
About average. It won’t kick your tastebuds much, but it could be good with a burger or something. If you’re only drinking beer, you’ll probably get bored of the flavor unless it’s being used primarily as a social lubricant.

from brewery in taster. Looks like light apricots. Some head. Smells pretty good. Tastes not so good. Hardly any hops noticable. Pretty weak pale ale compared to what i have been drinking (a lot of Dale’s!) Overall 4 of 10

Pretty mild tasting pale ale. I taste the requisite hops, but on this tasting not much else.

12 ounce bottle from variety pack. Pours a clear copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, grain, citrus and piney hops. Taste is piney hops, yeast and caramel malt. Fairly well balanced. Easy to drink.

Nose is floral and lightly sweet. Not much going on. Pours hazy golden, thin head. THe flavor is lightly sweet, a touch of bread, pale malt, and light spicy floral hops. A touch of citrus. Easy to drink, not that interesting, sessionalbe APA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours copper/amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma us pine, citrus, caramel and spice. Taste begins with a nice mellow bitterness into pine and citrus and the it just falls into nothing the taste stops there. I feel like the is half a decent beer but needs a bright finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan, with a foamy, patchy head. Toasty, bitter aroma. Medium bodied, quite easy to drink, approaching watery. Solid crisp bitter hoppiness, really evens out the creamy Vienna-malt tones. A touch of fruity ale yeast flavors in there too. OK, sort of a light West Coast Pale with some fruity Oktoberfest/Amber tones going on as well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a great pale ale that goes great with dinner. Nice copper pour with a malty aroma. The flavor is mildly hoppy and smooth. I would recommend this one to anyone who likes local pales or well balanced beer
