3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Copper with big, frothy, beige head / Muted nose of pine, citrus, and spun sugar / Medium body, a touch watery, hint of sweetness but mostly dry, lightly astringent, with good balance and bitter finish / Flavors of Fruit Pebbles, spun sugar, pine, and soap / Pleasant, and nicely balanced, if a bit peculiar and weak.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Large, thick, foamy beige head with a lighter amber/dark copper body. Darker than a usual pale ale. Citrus aroma - a bit of malt, grassiness, and floral elements. Taste is citrusy with a bitter feel mixed with a solid malt backing. Citrus upfront, followed by sweetness, and a bit of toasted malt feeling at the end. There is no lingering hop bitterness at the end. Low carbonation and a somewhat creamy smooth mouth feel. I think this is what they mean by a clean finish.
I quite enjoy this one.

On tap at Tony Roma’s, Mall of America. Fruity and oniony hops aroma with stone fruit and faint strawberry. Almost clear copper under a thin, white cover and lace. Flavour is salty hops with onions, bitter resin, and apricot in front of sweet base malt. Very high bitterness lingers through the finish and is slightly astringent. Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth.

12-ounce bottles poured into a large dimpled mug. Tasty, not too bitter, the best pale ale that I have had (although the color was a bit dark for the type).

Really hard to rate, as ths was on Nitro. If I had known that I probably wouldn’t have ordered it as it was just dominated by the nitro and I got very little aroma or flavor out of it. Certainly not hoppy. May have to give this a try in the bottle.

12 ounce bottle. Amber orange pour. Large creamy beige head with noticeable lacing. Rich malty aroma has earthy caramel notes. Flavor has notes of caramel malt and citrus hops. A wonderful balance of malt and hops. Sweet and spicy. Peppery hops finish this nicely.
