3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On Tap at the brewery in Troy, NY. Pours amber with long lived white head. Aroma is of caramel malt, ripe fruit and hint of hops. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Sweet caramel malt, ripe fruit on the palate followed by earthy hops. Finish is long and bitter. Too much sweetness in this brew for me.

Bottle labelled as "Brown’s Pale Ale." Pours orange with an off white head. This was either off or old. Light floral hops, sweet toffee, and a bit too much diacetyl. Passable, but not good by any means.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Super hazy copper coloured body with a thick, soapy off-white head about three centimetres tall. Aroma of yeast, english hops, corn, dry malt and a touch grassy. Medium-bodied; Strong bready and yeastie flavour at first with a bit of the light hops hitting soon afterwards. Aftertaste shows a bit of a grassy and floral note, with a lot of cereal malt flavours and some dry rice notes as well. Overall, not such a great APA, bordering to me on an EPA, but not too impressive. Not horrible - but there are better beers out there for sure! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$2.60 sampled at home in Washington on 22-December-2011.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazed light amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of pine and malt. The flavor begins with a decent dose of malt, followed by some piney hops. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. No problems.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Served a clear copper-orange color with a finger of white head. The head fades fairly quickly to a ring with some decent lacing on the glass.
S - Sweet caramel malts and with some subtle hop aroma mixed in. There is a touch of citrus and bread also in the nose.
T - Starts off with sweet caramel malt flavor and a touch of light. Through the middle some bread flavors and some light citrus hop come through. Finish is a blend of caramel sweetness and some bread flavor that lingers nicely.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels fairly smooth and pretty crisp. The finish is a touch dry which is nice.
D - Very drinkable. Pretty well balanced overall. Could use a bit of flavor, in particular a bit more hops overall.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange with minimal head. Flowery aroma, mild citrus / lemon hop. Rather English.
Mild pale English malts, sweet flowery hop. A little German malt at the end, pleasantly musty; breast at the end.
Fizzy and thick feel. A nicely sweet, mild pale with an English bent.

Pours a light brown, small white head. Taste is pretty malty, sweet, touch of hoppy bitterness as well. Pretty solid, not outstanding, but pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber golden pour. The nose is fairly fruity but with an odd soapy quality. A touch of pale malt and a very unusual astringent character. As it warms up it takes on even more mango and peach flavour. Fairly assertive bitterness on the finish. Okay, but not great.
