2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not much aroma, and lacking in hops for a pale ale. Initial taste reminded me of portabella mushrooms. Not great aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from trade. Pours golden yellow, white head. Aroma of spicey yeast, no real hop aroma. Taste is fruity, very much so. Again, no hop bitterness, even for a bpa. Not a fan.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can to snifter. Nose is moderately grassy with some medicinal character to it, like band aids. Taste is initially bitter then fades to show off a sweet bready malt flavor. Some grassy and earthy hop tones come through mid palate. Finishes semisweet with some candy notes to it. Tolerable but not my preferred style by any means.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemon zest, Belgian candi sugar, and light mango. The aroma has real promise so the taste is a bit of a letdown. While there is nothing off-putting, the taste is weak with only mild flavors that are featured in the aroma. The lingering bitterness from the yeast is a bit surprising since there is little more than a hint of it in the flavor. Not a bad beer but not one I would recommend from what has otherwise been great from DC Brau.

A golden pour with a small white head. Aroma is lite and sweet with a hop profile that is floral. Very unique beer that could be drank year round a little sweet and a little peppery.finsh is dry and just a touch bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can courtesy of Greg G. Golden amber hue, murky clarity (cannot see through glass) with mostly diminishing white head. No lacing. Sweet aroma, grain, citrus (orange), floral aromas. Sweet taste (citrus) & grain up front with more grain on the finish. Light body, oily texture. I may have missed some things on this beer, but I enjoyed it. Had "The Public" after this, rating on this one to come.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can into a tulip. Pours a deep golden/light amber color with a thick, long-lasting white head. Smells of fruits and sweet malts. Very little complexity to the flavor, just sweet malt and a hint of fruit, with a dry finish. Not a bad beer, but not great.
