3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Clear and golden amber. White head. Sweet citrus and apples in the initial sniff. Slight caramel, "baked bread" aromatic undertone. Sweet and smooth flavor. Sweet hops round out the profile along with light malt roast. A touch light, but sweet and pleasing!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hoppy aroma. First impression is that this is a very nutty pale ale, more so even than some nut browns, but the hops make it better than many nut browns too. An odd pale ale, but enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colored with a lot of floating particles. Malt aroma has some cherry and plum notes, mostly an old grain smell. Thick, malty, sweet red ale type texture and flavor... there are definitly some nut flavors hidden beneath the semi-sweet, oily cedar flavors. Buttered nuts, perhaps is more accurate. Light cedar and toffee hop finish, marginal bitterness. I prefer an APA to contain more citrus flavors and be a little more hopped, but this try is not that bad. Drinkable and tasty.

Typical American hop aroma, reasonable malty body. Well balanced, easy drinking session APA. Certainly nothing special.

tap at brewery-pours a light copper hue with minimal white head. piney hop aroma but not the basic cascade note thing going. slighty green and earthy hop flavors and nice toasty malts make presence in the flavors. More an ESB than a pale ale. Nice refreshing body that has a very clean finish. nice pale ale!
