2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear dark golden color with a creamy white head. Sweet citrus nose. Mouthfeel is a bit powdery. Ample bitterness. The malt character is not adequate. And there is a stale flavor that underlies the other characteristics.

I don’t know about a malt-inspired body, it tasted mostly of hops. But it is a decent and inoffensive brew in and of itself. Looks nice, with a proper head and nice foamy lace. I could see this beer being popular with a wide range of beer drinkers.

Bottle pours Orange w/ medium particles & white head excellent lacing and mostly lasting. Hay aroma. Light sweet with a bitter punch, it really pushes the upper end of the IBU for most Pale Ales. A complex beer with both malty & hoppy flavors coming through.

Nice pour - a lovely redhead with good head. Oh, wait, I am supposed to be describing the beer not the porn I am watching. Yea, the beer taste good too.

Fort Collins Brew Fest 2003: Fairly hazy. Citrus aroma, definitely of Cascade hops, the taste, too. This was nice and refreshing during a nice hot Colorado summer day.

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

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was my most dissappointing beer of this Sampler Pack. Maybe I drank a bad bottle but this doesn’t rate high for me. Rather bland and too bready for my palate. Disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice piney, floral nose over a thin off white head with little retention and no lacing. Nice amber/brown colr with very slight haze. Flavor is pine resin with mild bitterness that lingers. American hops (Cascade and Liberty?) evident. Lacks individuality and hop character. May be a bit old.

copper pour from a 12oz bottle, the last several reviewers describe it perfectly, miminal head, little lacing, hoppy aroma and malty body with a decent bitterness and medium cabronation. In other words, a good american pale ale.
