2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Surprised by the Dark Horse effort, or maybe lack of. Served with a smallish, fine, off white head that settled to a fine cover and no lace. Color is a clear, rich yellow. Aroma is malt, hay, and grain. Flavor is similar with sweetness coming out. Very little hop. Bit fruity. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor. Reminds me of some of the early pale ales that were "pale" in color, but nothing like a tradition "pale ale" of any sense.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Hopcat. Hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma of mild citrus hops mixed with some sweet malt and faint spices. Taste is mildly hoppy and balanced with sweet malt along with a citrus tang and some spices. Very mild bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at hopcat. Orange pour with white head. Aroma of citrus, herbs, peppercorn and light malt. Flavor is more malty and doughy than the aroma. Some citrus and clove in the finish. Crisp and refreshing.
