3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a cloudy amber with a thin (less than 1 finger) white foamy head that was fully diminishing and had fair lacing.
The aroma was moderately heavy of citrus hops, a light crystal malt and a skunky yeast with hints of caramel and grapefruit.
The taste was mildly bitter and lightly malty sweet with a note of caramel from the onset then became a tad more on the bitter side with a nice strong citrus (grapefruit) overtone at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time allowing for the bitter taste of the hops to linger.
The mouthfeel was light to medium in body with a dry texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall a bold and tasty Pale Ale that offered just the right amount of bitterness that did not totally overtake the nice mild sweet malty undertone.

Bottle from Lowes Grocery Store. Malty aroma. Small head. Slightly sour tasting. Not a bad beer though. Fairly drinkable.

From bottle. Pours a golden clear with white head that disappeared. Mostly earth malt and spicy hop and a little cardboard in the aroma. Taste was thin and dry. May have been an old bottle.

Clear gold with white head. Faint musty aroma. Watery feel with a mild citrus taste overbalanced with bitterness. Not overly bitter, just overbalanced bitter.

12 oz bottle - a bit of a sour aroma. Tastes a bit like grapes. This isnít a bad beer, and I did drink several of them. It is just an average pale ale.

12 oz bottle. This was tasted at the Provisions Company in Holden Beach, NC. The pale ale poured a light yellow with a small head that stayed with the ale. There was a nice bitterness from start to finish. The ale could have more body. There was average carbonation. The finish was smooth with a sublte bitterness at the end.

Meh. Itís a standard pale ale. Nothing all that interesting about it, other than that itís from a local brewery. Eh.

Gift from SJ. This one had a hint of hop, citrus, caramel malt and bread. A tad thin in the body. Easy to drink.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. light floral hoppy aroma with clean pale malty notes. The flavor has plain pale malts and light floral hops. Really more like a golden or blonde ale, but drinkable nonetheless.

Pours light amber yellow with a thin lacing of white head. Aroma of doughy citrus with just a hint of yeasty funk. Light body and very straightforward flavor. Pale malt with some slightly minerally and citrus notes. Hop bitterness opens up in the finish and finishes dry. I would like some more bready/roasty malt flavors going on, especially for an "English" style pale. This straight forward ímerican.
