2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A cloudy, golden color. Had a very frothy, persistent head. Smell was sour and grassy, not terribly pleasent. A thin palate, with a sweet initial flavor balanced by "a surprisingly light hop finish," per the commerical description.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rusty tasting with bits of watery pickle juice thrown in to make sure the flavor canít recover. Poured nice though. One of those good from far, but far from good beers that are all too common these days.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: This one has an evergreen and lemony nose, maybe a little flowery with some yeast hints; the body has lively carbonation and a mild, somewhat watery and bitterish-perfumey taste and slight oxidation. Move along.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle Pours a hazy pale yellow. Strangely almost identical to the ZON whitbeir I just had. Huge white fulffy head. Faint light grain and cereal aromas. Very easy on the hops. Flavor was similar. Plain and bland. There is some kind of sour twang in there as well. Bitter at the end, but not in a good hoppy way. Dissapointing

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(12 oz bottle: Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) I donít know what it is with organic beers, but so many of them have the most bizarre flavors and smells. The flavor and aroma of this extra pale ale is intense creamed corn, with a side dish of cardboard and perhaps some peppery spice. Thereís a mild bitterness toward the finish, but it doesnít have much impact or make much of an impression because the corn flavor and aroma is so dominant. Light to medium body. Like other extra pale ales Iíve sampled, this is medium yellow in color, and itís ever-so-slightly hazy in appearance. A fairly vigorous pour yielded about half an inch of off-white head, which gradually receded to a thin layer, leaving some spiderweb lacing on the glass. Iím not offended by beers with that creamed corn, grainy flavor, but this one is pretty strong.

Hazy straw colored, minimal white head that laces nicely. Not much going on here, a bit of malt sweetness but overall thin with a bland finish. Might be a good transition beer for Bud drinkers though.

Thanks to BŁck Dich for this one.
This enters the glass with a large white head above a clear medium yellow body.
Little to no aroma. Lightly sweet flavor. The body is light with a watery palate. Very thin and disappointing. The only reason to drink this one is to rate it.

This has to be the holy grail for pale ale lovers, itís taste like a pale ale times 3, i know why it says extra, good beer but iím not into the pale ales that much.
