2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hops, citrus, lite fruit aroma. Copper with very thin head. Farily bland flavour with sweet malts and lite hops. Crisp with bitter finish.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rusty gold, big beady head. Fair, but clip-artsy label. Caramel, moderatey fruity hop aroma. Don’t drink the foam - it’s fishy-metallic. Boozy, pith-bitter, crackery, lightly tart, not sweet at all until the finish, light diacetyl. Medium body. Lingering unpleasant bitterness, going metallic. Thanks to PorterPounder.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sweet with caramel and biscuit, some diacetyl. Mild neutral fruitiness. Papery and a little cooked corn. Brilliant amber clear, with thin off-white lacing head. Watery light body with mild carbonation. Starts pretty sweet, with some caramel and biscuit. Mild cooked corn, sugary sweet, like a fortified lager or malt liquor almost. Dry bitterness or nuttiness in the finish, with a sickly sweet after. Very little character to the hops, other than a dry bitter. Not a very good APA.

Another City Brewery beer. This one is on the subtle side of pale ales. It’s not real hoppy, but there’s taste, it’s just not a huge taste. Good stuff though, and somewhat local to me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin fizzy head with light carbonation. Nice hoppy aroma. Little citrusy and piney. Sharp nasal bitterness. Color is a dark amber. Nice and hoppy flavor with some soft bready malts. Zippy bitterness. Bitternes is short lived though. Finish is dry, a little chalky and bitter. A decent run of the mill pale ale. Good hops and a light malt for balance. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Minnetonka, Mn - MGM Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Slight funky aroma, hint of spruce to redeem it. Medium orange pour with solid white frothy head. Faint citrusy flavor, hint of mint. Decent bit of syrupy maltiness in the back end to balance it out. Good bitterness throughout. Mouthfeel is thick enough. One of the better ones I have had from this brewer.

I found this in Albert Lea MN. I found it to be a fairly good pale ale with a slightly bitter average length finish. I enjoyed the initial taste, also found the color and scent to be pleasing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Pat’s. Pours medium coppery with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of bready caramel malt, perfumy hops, some black pepper. Tastes sharply hoppy, with careamel malt, slight floral spiciness, and a tad of metallic notes. Medium palate heft.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Med.-light amber color, with a diminishing off-white head. Some lacing. Very pleasant, mild citrus/pine aroma. Initiall flavor is semi-sweet malt and dried citrus rind; unfortunately, the the malts play too large of a role. Finish is relatively quick and clean, but a slight bitterness does remain for a while. If you like your ales to be on the sweet/malty side, then maybe you’d appreciate this beer more than I do.

Bottle. So so. Kind of malty and relatively hoppy - not very good hop flavor though. Also has some off-flavors. Definitely have had better pale ales.
