3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy burnt orange pour supporting a creamy toasted white head never left the glass. First impression on the nose was sour apples and yeast followed by sweet malt and some hops. The sour notes in the aroma were more apparent in the flavor with a distinct sour bite at the tip of the toungue right away. Malty sweetness came through at the center along with apple, pear and caramel. The hops finally showed up to the party but not until the sour/sweet guests were already in command. Finish was slightly sweet, bitter and still a bit sour. I was beginning to think I might have had a bad bottle or one that was poorly maintained but after seeing that I’m not alone in finding this PA a bit sour, I think it’s more likely that this is just not a very good beer - a disappointment from a good brewer.

Poured an effervescent amber with a fizzy off-white head. Plain yet refreshing hops aroma. Taste is rather thin, with some light malt, prominent lemony hops with a small hint of smoke. Very dry, bitter and somewhat distasteful finish. Thin bodied.

Coming from Cisco Brewing i was kinda disapointed. This was your everyday pale ale. Had an abundance of hops but it just didnt do it for me. Also, $9.99 for a 4pk. Not so good.

Copper pour with big, frothy, white head. Aroma of bready malt, buttery hops. Tastes bready malty, with some caramel and fruit at the finish.

Hazy light orange, off-white head is timid. Almost smoky aroma with house cleaning stuff hints and a tart tingy. Sweet and floral yet tart and earthy. Growing spicy hops bitterness, light carbonation. A bit stale.

750 ml Bottle. Amber in color. Sour tasting. Citrusy. Aroma of lemons. Yeasty and hoppy. Not one of my favorites. Hops are harsh.
