3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 fl.oz., BB Jun2014,
Bottle at ShakeShack, Grand Central Station.
Ale Starts malty, fresh. Highly drinkable. The mainpart is Bitter-typical, a bit roasted, malty-dry with nice hints of bittering hops. The aftertaste is long, highly drinkable, malty-dry and nicely roasted-bitter.
Nice session Bitter, but could be a bit deeper in aroma.

Plastic pint, Shake Shack on Columbus, UWS, 22/02/14- barely room to pivot my elbow gob-wards. Orange slicked with white. Pisswatter loosely in the English style; aroma of grain and vague aniseed; yeast and orange. That (absence of) flavour too with dried grass and bread hints; drowning sorrows, good fresh cracker afters; a hint of liver (?!). 0 fucking 5. Beige. Twigs. Bollocks.

Draft at Shake Shack on 18th in Washington DC. Poured a pretty clear copper color with very light citrus and malt notes. Flavor was biscuit malts, some light hops. Mostly inoffensive.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. An interesting floral hop aroma. Kind of earthy. Not much else to the nose. Pours a very clear golden color. Minimal head. Good lacing. Taste is initially very floral with a light peppery nite in the finish. Hardly any toasty character or caramel to the malt. Overall refreshing but not great

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Shake Shakespeare. A light cloudy deep golden one with a small islandy off-white lager head. Smells nice, but I just want to drink! It’s so damn hot outside today and I’m sooo thirsty! Tastes alright. Not to far off a regular pilsner really, except it has a nice body and mouthfeel. Almost a bit thick in the mouth. Slightly fruity in the finish also and it feels balanced with a gentle bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad at all, but I think even the saddest old pale lager would be sufficient for me right about now. 24.06.2013

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grassy hops on the nose. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Very balanced honey malts with grassy hops and an earthy bitterness with hints of lemon and finishes very dry. Excellent session beer very drinkable. And great with my burger!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the tap in a plastic cup.
Clear amber color with a small white head.
Earthy hops aroma, mellow malt and soft orange zest.
Biscuity malt flavor, lightly moldy earthy notes, medium bitterness.
Light-med body, not very interesting and short aftertaste. So so.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Thinner white head, lightly hazy dark orange copper. Earthy English hops, but fairly muted, some grass, and malt sweetness. Some apple, light maltiness, slightly sweet, and close to a dadsd pennant ale on the flavor profile. Lighter to medium body. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden brown, thin, light with a taste of wheatish tones. A tad bitter, a tid malty. Very decent summer beer. As one person on Untappd said, ’inoffensive.’ I’d drink it again.

Copper color in the (plastic) glass. Aroma of bready malt and a hint of noble hop spice. Good balance. Very sessionable.
