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 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 doesn’t work well with the biscuity malt finish. Medium body, frothy carbonation, prickly hops.

Bottle. Super clean light copper with a small head. Nice carbonation with bubbles showering to the surface. Good looking pour. Aroma is light hops, pine, malt, grapefruit. Flavor is hops, bitter pine, citrus, malt. Finish is crisp, dry, and slightly bitter. I found it to be quite refreshing.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This site is so guilty of lacking a "value" rating that someone needs to be painfully punished. Strong hop & barley nose. The head leaves a nice lacing but otherwise dies quickly. Hearty bitterness on the palate. Surprisingly light mouth feel. Floral aftertaste bitter but very watery finish!!! No maltyness what-so-ever!!!!! This is good, but not worth the price they want for it. Not at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 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 isn’t as bitter / hoppy as you’d usually expect from a typical pale. Not bad but far from outstanding...pleasant.
