2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber color with a moderate cream colored head. Caramel aromas with hints of weedy, old hops. Lightly toasted malt with dry caramel in the front. Middle is full of woody hops. A sweet sour sauce in the finish. Late in the finish, there are hints of malt again that are welcome, but just too much "unclean" hops and dirt flavors. No reason to think that this is not a fresh bottle. My sediments are the same as Pitonkas on this one.

Where the Wild Beers Are, 2011. Enough hopes to call it a pale ale, combined with brett yeast in the aroma and flavor. Lightly bitter from the hops, and the brett gives an earthy quality. Yellow beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2009 Medium copper colored body with a very thin light khaki head. Sharp orange citrus notes dominate the nose with earthy musk following up behind. some toast with peanut butter is also present. Light grapefruit is mixed in with cardboard and a little bit of black pepper spice. There is also walnut after drinking for a while. Decent and on the malty end of things.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer poured a hazey orange body with a small white head. It had aromas of citrusy fruit, fresh hops and soft pine. Taste was astringent, hoppy and piney. It was a nice beer. Suited my palate well.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle, brewed by "Farmhouse brewing".
Orangy copper with a slight chill haze and a two-inch head. Plenty of ripped sheets of clingy lacework for the duration.
Aromatics are pretty much straightforward stale malt, with a touch of honey, gypsum, and stale hop pellets.
Light caramel drizzeled on a wet paper bag.
Medium bodied and carbonation is decent.
Wet cardboard, stale malt, and drying bitterness lead off the pallet. Some faint, astringent citrus pith and minerally graininess.
Finishes..Well, letís not say quick enough.
Once again, no bottle date can be found, but this beer tastes like itís two-years old and abused.
And to think I picked it up just two weeks ago at the Foodery in Philadelphia for just over $3.00.

22 oz. bottle from BevMo (Mission Valley) - Pours a hazy amber color with a half finger thick off white head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is floral and light soap. Flavor is sweet malt and light fruity esters. Light to medium body. Worth a try.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pale amber, fairly clear, large foamy off-white head, decent lacing.   Unfortunately the nose yields some cardboard, wet
sock, and some overcooked vegetable like aromas.   Not terribly strong, but certainly there.   Has a bit of a musty basement twang
as well.   Flavor isnít as bad as the nose might suggest, a bit more of a floral and herbal flavor.   Light hop presense, even
lighter malts.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Doesnít seem hopped enough for a pale.   A very light Pale maybe.   Does
have a bit too much vegetable on the finish.   Possible old bottle?   Their Robust Porter was certainly good, and I got this from
the same store.   May need to rerate in the future as this one may be over the hill.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from BevMo in LaJolla, consumed in summer 2006. Clear medium amber color with a large fluffy of white head and a single, pretty stream of bubbles from the bottom. Toasty malts, lightly fruity with mild citrus and alfalfa hops. Nice hoppy amber ale flavor, toasty malts with lemon, a bit of grass and ample floral hops. Light to medium body, gentle carbonation. Another solidly made and servicable ale from Coast Range.
