2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Dick’s, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out boiled vegetables, slight diacetyl and floral notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with boiled vegetables. Not much else. This is rather bad. Not drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is more malt forward than a lot of pale ales, I find; there’s a bit of caramel in there up front with just a little floral hoppiness coming through afterwards. Taste is a little bitter, with just a bit of toasting coming through, and a hint of sweetness on the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy amber pour topped by a huge rocky white head. The nose is softly hoppy and a little bit earthy/herbal character. The malts are a little bit earthy and slightly oxidized as well. Sort of lightly sweet with a touch of soft sweetness. It’s okay, but definitely not great.
