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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very dark brown (a chestnut) colour...very dark for a 'pale ale'. Somewhat sweet smell, but one similiar to an english bitter. A strong malty flavour, not much noticable hops. Somewhat sweet taste, but slightly overwhelming. A strong initial taste, but very thin and a very long bad tasting aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tastes exactly like I thought it would: malty pale ale, something like an English pale ale with cleaner yeast. Lots of Maris Otter in the mouth and spice in the nose. Well brewed, but not my favorite flavors.
