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.
