2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Hilltop in Stevens Point. Really pale yellow in the glass, macro-swill appearance. Aroma is subdued, but some decent fruit and hop character. Taste is watery and fairly bland, with some citrus and a decent kjick from the hops @ the end. All in all - pretty pedestrian, maybe a little less.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little hazy, straw yellow with a rocky white head. Crisp hoppiness. Piney with some fruity malt. Lower body makes it a quaffable drink, but hoppy for a ’sconny beer. Like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2004 Amber body with a thin, soapy head. Aroma of floral hops and some citrus. A flavor with malts & hops of a good APA with decent hop bitterness at the end, intruding on the maltiness. Low carbonation. Another good brew from Central Waters.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A really pleasant pale ale, not extraordinary in any way, nothing wrong either. Sweet citrus and bready aromas. Decent amount of bitterness that washes over the tongue, very solid bready malt backbone.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a nice deep golden amber with a modest head and lace that remained thoughout the drink. Aroma was mainly of malts with a slight hint of hoppy fruitiness. Taste started with malts and quickly slid into citrus tones with a moderate to heavy hop finish. Overall, this is very good quality but my rating may be slightly lower since I am not a big fan of heavy hops.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pretty orange/bronze with a good finger worth of solid off-white head. Beer appears somewhat cloudy, but tons of tiny bubbles race to the top throughout. Very nice orange fruit aroma. Good bitterness in the taste but leaves as quickly as it appears. If I were drinking this in a blind taste test, I’d think it was an IPA rather than an American Pale. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper color, nose of flowers, citrus, bread, yeast. Real bitter up front, followed by nice bread notes, a bit of sweet honey and oats. Not a big pale fan, but this is very well balanced.
