3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel malt is nice enough with some piney hops with light citrus undertones. Taste is also a nice enough mix between caramel malt with a light bitter finish with medium piney notes and some citrus as well. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad with good drinkability factor.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle and served in Bells tulip: Pours a amber hue with a nice frothy head and left spotty lace upon the glassware. The aroma is honestly a bit weak, some wet grains, hint of butterscotch, apple esters, herbal hop, and a touch of that ever present Pacman yeast character. The taste is better with a simple and clean hop bitterness over a layer of toasty mat with some hop spice and soapy tones. The mouth feel is vibrant and crisp with some metallic notes. Overall an okay APA but quite forgettable, I liked the Dirtoir Black Lager much better. Still can not wait to try the others in this series.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber pour with a huge white froth. The nose floral citrus, hints of evergreen resin, and a caramel biscuit malt character. Lots of bready caramel malts in the flavor with a resinous grassy hop character that also holds notes of citrus and flower. Thin palate with a sticky finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant malty aroma with some orange citrus and lightly spicy hop notes. Opaque golden body is topped by a decent white head that recedes quite rapidly to a thin but lasting cover. Flavour follows the nose. It’s pretty simple, and straight forward with moderate bitterness. Creamy texture and decent effervescence make for a very nice mouthfeel but overall this is a pretty middle of the road, quaffable pint. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in July 2010.
