2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle, is a clear bright pale gold color with a very thin white bubbly head, aroma is of older hops with a little bit of grain, the flavor is really bland and nothing stands out, no real hop presence, pretty much tastes like a higher level bud light, swing and a miss again in this mix pack I picked up.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind as a local bar session beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Aromas of pale malts and light citrus. Flavors of pale malts with light hop and citrus note. Easy drinker. Actually better than I thought it was going to be.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Although not typical of APA's (which have gone over the edge in hoppiness), I liked it. Pours a golden straw with a one finger head that dissipated quickly. Medium carbonation and very subtle citrus notes. In the end, closer to a lager but yet refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle - darker yellow in color. Not much in the way of aroma. I didn’t care much for the flavor. Tastes a bit moldy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with my father-in-law (thanks JoePeesie!). Pours a pale canary yellow with minimal white head. Aroma is mild of burnt caramel with a touch of pine. Better balance in the flavor with more hops presence. Slight cooked vegetable presence in the finish. Soft carbonation. Light overall and not bad.

Yes, it’s underhopped - being a ’pale ale’, that’s the point, and why I’m rating it very highly. ’Hoppy’ flavor is a by-product of American craft brews, which I find distasteful, & tiring - literally. Great floral flavors pervade this brew. It also has a light citrus flavor (not overpowering Belgian style), & the color is lovely. I was not expecting much more than Chicago Goose Island, but was so pleasantly surprised. Hats off from a very critical beer connoisseur!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Light amber bre with white head. Aroma of moderate malts and light hops. Taste is light sweet malts with a dry finish. Hops are very restrained. Weak. WHile I like lagers, the lagerishness of this one diminishes it. Yeah.
