3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-17-12 -
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance –The brew was served a clear amber color with a two finger white head. The head faded relatively fast to leave a light amount of lacing.
Smell – The aroma was heaviest of caramel and some bready malt aromas. Some citrus and a light pine hop were also present mixed within; although these aromas were on the lighter side.
Taste – The taste begins of a bready malt flavor mixed with a lighter caramel sweetness. As the taste advances from there, hop flavors begin to enter the flavor profile. A more mild earthy and piney hop are the first to be detected followed by a light citrus bitter hop. These in the end take away from some of the sweetness and leave a slightly bitter dryness on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – A body of the beer was medium with a carbonation level below average. Both suited the more bready nature of the beer quite well.
Overall – An OK brew, but nothing really all that special.

Poured a light copper, almost Amber with a thin head of light foam. Aroma was spicy with a sweet fruit note. Great carbonation helped bring out the bitterness of the hops very well and finished with a sweet caramel flavor. Very nice.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned. Dark amber with a large white head that is mostly diminishing. Heavily malty aroma with some raisins and cardboard. Chewy malt flavor with husky grains, straw, very faint grapefruit. This is a pretty poor pale ale. A shame.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber leaning towards copper pour with a pretty minimal head that doesn’t leave much lace at all. Spicy, fruity nose with caramel and earth undertones. Fairly earthy on the palate with a decent amount of fruit and spice. Enjoyable but might benefit from a little more carbonation.
