1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Had this beer on 1/22/2006. This thing sucks, I open the bottle and it goes all over. I tried to pour it and it foamed up over the glass and just kept coming out of the top of the bottle. Color is a pale brown. Carbonation is not as high as you would think with the way it foamed up all over the place and the head dropped down to nothing. Aroma is a bit sour. Taste is light and tinny. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp. Finish comes on with a sweet caramel like taste and a sharp bitterness. It reminds me of a home brew that went bad. Overall its just bad, this is just one of the worst beers I have had.

On tap at the Columbus airport. Clear amber beer with slightly tan head. The body is medium with lively carbonation. I thought this was only a moderately hopped pale ale. Citrusy, and somewhat piney. Dry finish. A nice crisp beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mid-amber with a small white head leaving light sheets of wet lace. Orange & dry tea notes (instant tea) in the nose, rye & more bittering late. Pleasant, bitter hopped flavor, light pepper & citrics before a sweetly citric finish. As per the menu, this one has a, "log, dry finish." Nice.
Note: Yes... the menu said, "log".

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gentle hoppy nose. Clear orange amber in color with a decent white head. Sweet hoppy flavor with a little bitter aftertaste. Finishes dry. A slight warm, frothy mouth feel. A pleasant pale ale. Not outstanding, but not uneventful either.

Good ale had on tap at a Steakhouse, for a relaxing time. Poured a typical amber body with a peppery taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2008 A light hop aroma, almost no head which is surprising. A fairly consistent bite throughout. Decent
First score 4.1 A nice beer with a good bite. Similar to the classic pale of Sierra but with a little nutty note. A very drinkable pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice hop aroma. Nice balance of bittering hops. Semi aggressive taste just lingers. Much better than Stone’s pale ale.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an orange tinged copper, with a one finger head that recedes quickly to a thin ring that leaves behind a sparse webbing of lace.
Smell; mostly piney and citric hops, but neither one really jump out at you. A bit of sweet malts are present, but I can smell a little bit of diacytle as well.
Taste; the hops come off as piney with a little citrus, backed my some caramel malts. The diacytle is even more pronounced in the flavor than it was in the smell, and almost overrides the other flavors. Maybe I just really don’t like butter in my beers and I have a hard time getting past it.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, and because of the buttery flavors, this one is hard for to drink.
