Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Light malty aroma with some hoppy notes. The flavor is pretty well balanced with some dirty grainy malty notes and some floral hops. Decent.

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear light copper with a medium sized white head. Aroma of grains, barley and bitter hops. Taste is much the same as the aroma with a light tangy taste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep amber beer with a sticky white head. Aroma is quite hoppy. Orange peel and light grapefruit with a bit of citrus pith as well. A touch of butterscotch sweetness behind the malts. Flavour is lightly hoppy with a bit of chewy resinousness. Okay beer, but the sweet malts don’t play all that well with these hops.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery. Has a very mild aroma, with traces of Cascade (perhaps) hops and light carapils sweetness. Light orange-amber clear body with slight haze, topped with light off-white head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with light malty character, sweet sugar notes, and quite a hit of floral-grassy hop bitternesss. nothing really stands out here, but it’s a solid pale ale. Has a mild chemical soapy presence, fleeting, that’s really hard to nail down. A bit bitter in the finish with bitter chalky after.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned. Clear gold with a rich white long-lasting head. The aroma is a bit non-existent, but there are hints of caramel, pine, citrus, and o-zone. Clean, rich, full taste on the other hand. Nice bitter and citric notes, and is balanced beautifully by the cask.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewpub. pours orange amber with an off white head. Initial flavor of caramelized malt that transitions to a mild grapefruit bitterness. Short, semi dry bitter finish. Not outstanding, but good.
