Bottle. Nice golden in color without to much head. Somewhat of a citrus aroma with hops. Flavor consists of citrus and perhaps pine, while it is not to hoppy. Nothing really negative to say, but nothing to special to speak of either.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is listed as a summer brew, however It was not available in the store (in Madison, where it is brewed) until almost December. Hoppy and delightful beer, with a bit too bitter of an aftertaste. Overall good, but not a beer I would drink multiple of in a row.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper yellow with thin white head that dissipates. Aroma is lemon citrus with hops and cereal. Flavor is quite a bit of hops and bitterness. Body is light and carbonation is average. Nothing special about this pale ale....just another pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from sampler rack at PW. Pours clear golden orange with thin white head. Mildly hoppy, floral nose. Initial taste isnít as bitter / hoppy as youíd usually expect from a typical pale. Not bad but far from outstanding...pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber in color with a thin head. Aroma is a nice blend of pine & malts - maybe a little yeast too. Taste is a combination of citrus-like hops and a strong roasted malt flavor. I know Iím being vague, but itís hard to pinpoint exact flavors. Up front, youíre hit with the hops and that super rich "maltiness". The light bitterness slides in at the finish - itís almost sneaky. Not bad, but a little monotone for me.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Nice grapefruit hops aroma, light honey malts. Medium clear amber, thin white head, no lace. Strong citrus hops on the front with honey sweetness, then finishes a little off; the hops are more bitter than aromatic in a way that doesnít work well with the biscuity malt finish. Medium body, frothy carbonation, prickly hops.

Sweetish citrus lemon aromas with a hint of wheat and dough. Golden yellow with a white foamy head. Flavor is slightly bitter with some hay, light hoppiness, some citrus and wheat. Palate is light and crisp. Duration is bitter with a mellowing breadlike final finish.
