2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a pint glass from a 16oz tallboy can.
3.0 A: Clear medium orange color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and a short ring of lacing is left.
3.0 S: Resiny and piney hop aroma with some orange citrus underneath. Malts are primarily clean and offer a neutral sweetness, but there’s also some breadiness. Light caramel character to round it off. It’s okay, but needs more strength.
3.25 T: Mild bitterness. Hop flavor is again resiny and piney with just a touch of citrus and grass. Bready malts with caramel. Not as clean as the nose, but has a lot more power.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Just a touch of creaminess.
3.0 D: Good enough but solidly average and not any better.

16 oz can. Poured a hazy gold with a small white head. Aromas of cereal and light fruit. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of cereal and light citrus with a smooth dry slightly bitter finish. Just Blah.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz can. Pours a pale amber with a white head. Easy drinking pale with not too much character. Slightly sweet malt notes. Not all that much going on but enjoyable enough.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber pour with frothy white head (doesn’t look the role of PALE ale). Nose doesn’t smell like a pale ale either, mostly picking up not-quite-ripe strawberry melon. Flavor is not like a pale ale either, getting melon, semi-sweet malts, and earthiness. Not horrible, but definitely not good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good but nondescript. Amber and clear. Solid balance with nice malt backbone. Would try again.

Tap at brewery. Average pale in every way. Not bad but not stellar. Worth while if in town

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle, courtesy of FIL. Mild malt sweetness, with some biscuit and caramel. Lots of carbonic gaseousness and frothy bitters, with some neutral fruity hop character. Beautiful deep amber clear with creamy-foamy white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with muted sweetness and some neutral fruity character, a little orange. Some caramel. Mild hop flavor with light carbonic acidity. Bitterness is closer to astringent but not too detracting. Has a homebrew-y taste to it, but I’m not sure why. Finish is smooth with light sweet after.

July 24, 2013; 22 oz. bomber in St. B chalice. Unfiltered (a lot of sediment in this one) pale ale with the character of a fruit beer. A bit thin, but quite drinkable - especially during the summer months.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber pours golden amber with a silky cream colored head. Solid malt base in the nose mixes with mild hop resin. More sweet and malt based than expected. Honey sweetness and creamy mouth feel cover the palate. Easy to drink but seems a tad watery at times. Not a bad beer, just something that is meh and a bit uninteresting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours tannish amber with an off white head. Light flowery hops with a pale a lightly sweet malty base, as well as lighter earthy notes. Good, not great.
