2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tampa, Fl. - Total Wine & More - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden, very light bubbly white head clinging to the edge of the glass. Aroma is slightly funky with some light pale malt accents, just a touch of pear-like fruitiness. Flavor is pleasant, but uneventful. Pick up some light grassiness, a touch of grain, some very brief citrus bitterness. Mouthfeel has a decent spritz to it. Does in a pinch.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home shared with LeninCat offered by TheAlum. Thanks! Pours a pretty clear dark golden appearance with a white head. Biscuit, bread, orange zest, and toast in the nose. Awfully bitter, orange fruity, chewy bready flavor. Pretty fucken sweet as well. I didnít like this though LeninCat was at 3/5 ticks.

its too potent is none of the right combination of anything that makes a decent pale ale. the malts and hops donít work well together and the bitterness is too in your face.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a slightly hazed, golden color, with rapidly diminishing, soft white, bubbly head foam, and some wavy ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was a little dank, lightly floral, with a bit of rind, and some ripened pit fruit notes. Somewhere between medium & light bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste presented hop bitterness that was earthy, rindy, and almost peppery, with lingering astringency, moderate malt influence, and a finish that was bitter and somewhat dry. Not overly exciting in character, but fairly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear Yellow Color Huge Foamy Head That Last and Leaves Lots Of Lacing. Faint Pine Hop Aroma. Lightly Buttery, Malt, Light Citrus and Light Hop Finish. Could be bolder but then again it is pale ale, so what did you expect. No matter what hardcore beer aficionados say, this one is miles away from macros, especially, knowing that it came from Stevens Point WI. Overall quite decent, refreshing and drinkable. Worth at least a try to see it for yourself. OK..

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a light, clear golden with a fizzy, white head that dissipates quickly and a little bit of carbonation. Nose has grassy hops and grains. Taste is grassy hops and grains. Not much malt to be detected in this one. Light bodied guzzler with no finish. Not offensive, but not worth buying when domestic lagers are less than half the price.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a crisp golden with a finger of frothy white head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing and carbonation. Nose is hoppy and citrusy with some sweetness. There is some malt present that is blended with an interesting pineapple/alcohol mix. Mouth is very bitter, but bland. Not a lot of hops at all. Some grain and malt with a stale, salty like taste. The citrus is no where to be found. Not much of a pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a light straw color. Small white head. Some lacing. Grainy aroma. Clean and dry with some mild bitter. I was intrigued by this when I picked it up as a single. Then I realized it wasnít even brewed in Chicago. Not a terrible beer at all, just very uneventful.
