2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster on tap. Pours a clear medium amber color with thin head. Aroma light hops. Flavor has a nice hoppy bite on the front, mellowing to a medium bodied balanced salt finish. Good beer for eating pizza. Just enough character to stay afloat. Overall, a well-behaved and balanced ale without a lot to distinguish itself.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 On tap at BAR. Pours copper with a lacy head. Aroma of caramel and pale malts plus a little bit of floral and piney hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent pale ale. Edit: Dec 2014. Better this time. Hoppier. Moved from 3.3 to 3.5.

Pours a heavily filtered dark orange, with no lacing. Aroma has hints of metal, but predominantly pince, resin and grapefruit. A somewhat biscuit malt component balances the hops out. Hints of diacytel.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slight dark yellow with a very thin light white head. If I inhale really really deeply I might get a slight hop every once in a while. Some hop character on the tongue but it doesnt linger.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My favorite and least flawed beer from the BAR. This is overall a pretty well balanced pale ale with solid hop/malt blend. This was the only beer I had from the night that had a pleasant aftertaste of bitter hop zing. This was a little bit on the watery side, but overall not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A basic refreshing brewpub pale ale. Uninspired but well brewed, I can’t complain.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear golden blonde body topped by a small off-white head with good lacing
In long: Nose of standard pale ale (light C-hops kind of nose). Taste has some citrus fruits, soft caramel, light grapefruits notes. Mild bitterness with a light tartness. I’ve had a pale ale like that 100 times before. I cannot fault it for anything. It was a hot day and I drank my pint in 10 minutes. I liked it. Inoffensively drinkable. It is what it is. The BruRm brewpub is right next to the prestigious Yale University. It was kind of weird for me to see all these high class kids sitting in a pub at 4pm working on their laptops. I sat in front of one, opened my laptop, looked at him and said “I sank your battleship". Good times.

On tap at the BruRoom Brew Pub. Serviceable cascade lke pale. Golden yellow body with lace sheets down the glass. The aroma is hoppy, but also malts. The carbonation is right there. Good orange citrus flavour, good drinkability.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
Fruity yeast and hops scent this thin Pale Ale’s mild caramel malts, leading to light wooden hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam still laces atop the golden clarity.
-The nose is not appealing at all. Very low on hops, and there was some window cleaner (chemical) aspect as well.
-Carbonation was smooth and the body well rounded.
On tap at the brewpub.
