3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
As the beer sets in my glass, a deep burnished copper color, the head mountainous in size, the color a winsome light tan and the consistency creamy. Nose is malt, sweet, crisp and fresh, the start is richly malt, the top middling in feel to the palate. Finish has a spiteful acidity, the hops present and spicy in their bite, a dry aftertaste, and another good beer from a great brewery.

Sweet fruity (raspberry) aroma with some ice tea notes. Slightly sweet with a light bitter finish. Interesting pale ale. Would have again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber body, rising carbonation, medium white head, malty nose with a hint of hops. I don't really like the sweetness of the body. A bit of Cascades in the finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma has a nice tinge of hops but also a woody/pine essence - OK malts. Has a fake caramel color and almost no head. Medium high carb with medium watery body. Decent taste - quite a bit of hops but not overly bitter. There is also a spicyness to it - pine or juniper? that I didn't care for. A little tart/sour, also.

Medium light-tan head atop clear amber body. Aroma is sweet and malty, with a hint of floral hops. Taste has strong floral and earthy characters, along with some subtle biscuit. Medium sweet. Mild bitter finish. Solid English Pale.

Perhaps my least favorite Brooklyn so far, which has been very solid to this point. Unpleasant bitter-style malt. Tart. Good looking light brown. Maybe a tad watery. Still better than midline.
