4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color with tangerine hues shining through. Luxurious head with tenacity bonds to the glass forming a meniscus shape. Great lace work. Overly ripe fruit smell with perfume aromas and hops merging. Citrus peeking through. Spritz and champagne characteristics on the tongue. Gentle malt flavors give in to a subtle dryness. Very faint copper flavor is unobtrusive. A touch of alcohol subsides unveiling a long hop finish. Very smooth, yet smoother as it oxidizes and warms.

Excellent Abbey pale ale, golden in color, very nice soft lacy head, very clean & crisp taste, fruity undertones in the flavors, lots of floral aromas, a bit of a spicy & hoppy kick in the flavors & aftertaste, overall a very excellent abbey ale

Clear light yellow color with an average head. Full of large floaties. Musky pears, apples, and alcohol nose. Rather clean and light in overall taste. Small fizzy carbonation.
