2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
High carbonated amber with a more red hue than orange and a stagnant laced head that doesn’t seem to disperse. Aromas of caramel, light apple, zesty hops, grain, slight grass, with a touch of honey. Flavors of light honey, caramel, grain, slight zesty hop backing. Lightly crisp and smooth, slightly bittersweet. More of a grainy/malty pale than I usually drink.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This has a nice, hazy cider orange. Large pillowy head. Darkish orange. Head sticks around for a while. Tiny specks of lace at the top.
Has a nice English Pale smell. Ale-y, slightly fruity (apricot/orange?). Sweet ale malt, few hops to be detected. Fruity and inviting.
Malty ale taste, with a fruity base in the malt. Musty hops act as a bitter parting shot, mild though they are. All flavors increase/improve as it warms up.
Thick ale feel. Slightly creamy and with a wet after-feel. It has a definite English Pale taste. Lovely actually; a fine, sweet ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper pour with a small sudsy white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, mild floral and citrus hops, and toffee. Flavor is a bit grainy and astringent with slight light sugar sweetness and the mildest of citrus. Caramel and toffee come through again. Palate is light to medium with a grainy-dry finish. Fairly nondescript.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orangish body with a one finger fizzy white head that fell to a thin film. The nose is minimal leafy hops with a bit of a buttery off-note, some light caramel. The butter flavor overpowers the beer too much to make it enjoyable at all. Lightly bitter floral hops on the finish before the butter takes over. Light to medium bodied with a bit of clinginess on the back end. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Pretty bad, nothing turns me off more than butter in my beer.

Pours a nice copper color with huge head and good lace. Aroma is light but features floral hops. Flavor has a nice biscut malt character and a nice fruitiness with a mild hop bitterness. Palate is sharp.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this one bottled at the brewery in Milford, New York. Nice dark reddish brown color, a piney, hoppy nose, well balanced with a very strong grapefruit and rose flavor, awesome.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours clear amber, topped with a large beige head. Aroma of malt, toffee, earth and mild hops. Flavor is initially sweet, with toffee, peat, and tea. Earthy hops gradually build and provide a fairly long finish. Very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice coppery, amber color with
little head. Aroma of earthy, roasted
malt with a note of (possibly) coffee.
Somewhat thin palate. Peaty, malty
flavor with some hops bite lingering.
A bit better than I expected it to be.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz - Rock solid from start to finish. Copper colored liquid under frotyhy tan head. Healthy carbonation of small bubbles. Nice bright citrus hops on nose. Palate is nice too, with malt fading to spice (nutmeg) and hops. A pleasant, well constructed, memorable New York brewed ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Crystal clear copper color w/ ephemeral head. Smells slightly of butterscotch. Malty, slightly fruity (but pulls back dry) and with earthy, spicy hops. Kind of a mess, but not flavorless. Carbonation is sharp.
