1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. The look is clear, off white head, and copper colored. The smell is dill, pickle juice, hops, tart, and fruit. The taste is malts, stale hops, old, and not up to par.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reddish orange in color with an off-white head, this pale smells strongly of highly caramelized malts... Roasted, almost burnt. The flavor is nice... Dark caramel malts dominate the palate with hardly any hops decorating it. Perhaps some astringency spears in the finish, but its hard to tell if that’s from the malts or hops. It really reminds me more of an amber than a pale ale. not much to this beer... But if it were labeled an amber I’d give it more respect.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; color was an amber orange color with a fairly big khaki head. Aroma had a lot of toffee and some dark fruit, reminds me of Halloween for some reason. Flavor had the same profile as the aroma with a touch of wateriness. Toffee and fruity, a bit unusual for the style. Some toasted and earthy elements near the finish. Ok overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caramel and dark fruit in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and fruity with a little flowery bitterness in the finish. Better than I expected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Barcade, pours hazy copper with light to medium head, not much lacing. Notes are pale malt, belgian yeast, grapes, saison shampoo, and hops. Drinkable but lacked citrus and sessionable qualities for most pale ales.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, bottled on 08/2012. Deep copper color. Thick tan foam, nice lacing. Aroma of Brett, spicy rye, and bubblegum. Very interesting nose, wild yeast scent for sure. Caramel malt, notes of honey, nice pine hops, some herbal notes, and dry earthiness. Spicy, peppery tingle in the finish is either the presence of rye or wild yeast strain. A very nice APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(22oz bomber) clear medium amber, wispy fine white bubbles. Nose of brett, urinal, funky, light cat piss, very unusual. Taste of brett, florals, bit woody, potpourri, soapy, weird linger.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
How good could a pale ale be with its rich malty sweet but above all, nutty body? Uhhh. It looks good. Taste, not so much. Too nutty and sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2013 22 oz bottle. Pours a medium amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of bread and caramel malts and floral hops. Taste is just like the nose but with a very thin body. Too watery. Very dry. Definitely not in my top favs for Clown Shoes. I would let my people go so they didn’t have to drink this again.
