3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle. Pours fairly light yellow w/ a bit of foam. Piney, bitter, yet clean hops. Very clean, subtle malt profile as well. Would’ve liked a stronger malt backbone to support the hops, but that’s just me. Not too crazy about the the all-Pilsner malt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery - Pours hazy pale yellow with a white head. The aroma has doughy pils malt, spicy hops and herbs. It has a medium smooth body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with nice semi-dry pils malt, spice, herbs and some citrus. The finish dries out a bit and has tangerine and pepper. Solid pale ale.

The label says Pale Ale but what it really is, is a hopped Pilsner. If you review it based on that it would be much higher. It's a great light flavor compromise for a Hop Head.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle. Unclear pale yellow, big white lasting froth. Citrusy yeasty floral aroma and taste, thin lean malt, some spice, herbs and grass. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, moderately hopped. Reminiscent of a poorer Belgian blond. Kinda. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Bottle at Imazato. Pale gold with lace and floaties. Funky wheat, yeast in the nose. Bready, lemony flavor, rather yeast. Not impressed.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not what I was expecting. Like a pale lager or something. It is the color of Mello Yello. Smells like grains. No head, tiny bit of lacing. Tastes alright. A little fruity and "zingy". That’s a new term I just made up. Go ahead and use that in your reviews. Not awful, but not something I’d return to, though I wouldn’t turn it down if given to me. I hope that makes sense. Right, then.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Toasted gold color with medium carbonation and low head. Aroma is cereal, dry hay, hops, apple and pilsner malt. Flavor is mildly refreshing with some lemon citrus and more grainy cereal. Nice dry hop character but it can’t mask the lackluster base beer that failed to deliver. Come on dsmith4, how can you seriously give this a 5? Gross.
