3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma does not make one think that anything special is coming. It’s got grassy hops and a dull clean maltiness. The appearance is deep gold with a small head. The taste makes up for a lack of aroma with a big sweet malt punch to balance a robust hop quality. The palate is thick and smooth. Overall a very good beer!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh bomber. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden amber color with a thick, fluffy head of eggshell to beige foam. Dense, solid walls of lacing coat the glass almost entirely. The nose is very bready, showing a clean, lightly toasted, dry cereal grain base that is balanced with a light dusting of grasses and mild citrus. Flavors largely follow suit, again coming across as balanced and mostly dry. Lightly peppery, grassy green notes cut through the dry, wheaty cereal and toasted white bread elements. Hints of pithy citrus lend further drying, bittering character. The body is moderate in both stature and carbonation, drinking easy because the heft seems more from well-attenuated and unfiltered grain malt than from laboring residual sugars. Good brew. Nothing fancy, just solid and balanced. Boring perhaps, but free of any off-putting qualities.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from smith4498, thanks Jason! Pours a somewhat hazed, deeper gold colored body with a thin, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is fruity citrus florals and grass with a bready pale malt backing. Some decent lemon, grapefruit, and orange notes with a slight sharpness. Flavor is similar. Lots of floral citruses up front with a bready pale malt backing and a caramel sweetness. Finishes dry and moderately bitter with some malt sweetness and a good amount of citruses. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, nothing special, but a pretty decent pale ale. Enjoyable enough.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden orange on tap with thin cap of lacy white head. Aroma is pale malt, fresh bready grain, and slight citrus hops. Taste is pretty much all the bready grain, with a hint of bitter. Nice when it’s fresh.
