3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh.
Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

Sampler at the Four Queens Casino Brewpub - Also called "Pale Rider" at the Brewpub. Poured a orangish-amber in color wth a whitish head. Aroma was heavy of citrus-pine hops with a hint of malty sweetness. Flavor was pretty hoppy... citrus-pine and cascade grassiness too... the way I like it. Very good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Called Pale Rider at the brewery. Clear medium gold colored. Dry, bitter with a cloudy wheat or burlap flavor. Dry wood and charred fruit but not in a good way, think old cardboard and carrots. Has a fresh hop nose, somewhat resembling thje dry-hopped note of Alpha King, but still with the stale presence and so something I would not drink again.
