   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2012
Appearance: lovely orange under a billowy pithy head which fades with large patches of lace in its wake. Head lingers with a pillowy clump in the middle. Swirls enticing.
Nose: like walking into a bakery with loaves in the oven baking, loaves cooling on the counter, and fresh dough being kneaded. Lemon pith in the middle with lemon zest along the sides. Subtle dryness of straw and bread crust.
Palate: as equally bready as the nose implied with loaves of white, whole grain, and honey. Chewy and rich. Bitter rind and pith in the back before more honey-kissed fresh bread cuts through and inspires thirst. Dry grains and bread crust in the middle. Not a long finish.
Final Thoughts: a solid Pale Ale that definitely brings to mind and justifies the term “liquid bread”. Whales Tale didn’t break any Pale Ale boundaries but what it did do was brew justice to the solid standards that are already in place. Good show.

Had with Blake in Boston. 5.6%, from Nantucket. Not bad, but probably could drink a few of them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kwik-lime (1628) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2016
Fairly lightly hopped, nicely balanced making it very sessionable for the ABV but lacking a real punch to make it interesting.

N3lson1 (828) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2016
Drank at the Publik House, in Chester, NJ, from a bottle. A very bland, normal everyday pale ale...not impressed.

beer-yum (1190) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2016
Restrained citrus aroma in a golden amber pour. A nicely balanced brew that has a different fruitbread body that seperate so it from its peers and makes for a nice change.

Very light aroma. Burnt orange color and no cloudiness. Light start - tastes like an amber almost. Mildly bitter finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhillyCraft (5100) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Can shared by Joe, thanks pal. Pours murky red with small to medium white head. Fruit punch and honey mustard notes. Brutal offering that my friend pushed back to the bar keep.

Dark Amber pour. Nose is bready with mild hop notes. Taste is crisp with a slightly tart bite. Mildly bitter grassy finish. Quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

luttonm (3968) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2015
12oz bottle on Cape Cod. Warm brown, thin head. Sweet fruity malt aroma. Some Amber-biscuit malt flavor, cloying. Sweet full flavor. Some bitter grainy finish. Ok.

MarkoR (865) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2015
12 oz can. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is toasted malt, cereal, straw. Taste is is same, plus citrus and floral. It’s ok.

phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2015
12 oz. can at Rudino’s, poured into a pint glass. It pours a somewhat cloudy orange-gold with a huge, frothy off-white head. Notes of toasted, biscuit, cracker, and cereal malts, straw, dead grass, faint citrus, and a sort of underlying earthy, floral note that’s faint but provides minimal bitterness. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. It seemed just a tad old but the can had a cryptic code on the bottom, not a date. Nothing was terribly wrong, it’s just dull.
