2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a hazy gold color with a small white head. Light buttered toast aroma. Semi-sweet butter scotch flavor. Not as strong and repulsive as the beer prior to this and hopefully not just from a poorly rinsed glass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Brew 1259. Poured lighter golden orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up toasted bready malts topped by a lovely pinch of lemon zest.. great balance of sweet and tangy. The flavor found fruity notes, honey, and sourdough bread at the core with earthy, floral, and lemony bitterness around.. bright and tasty.. well-balanced. Lighter-bodied with a feel that was a touch scratchy and delightfully tart.. felt good. This would make a great session beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that had some decent retention. The nose is a bit off, there’s some soap and light butter notes that are problematic. Beyond that there’s a bit of sweet honey and pale malt with minimal floral hops. The flavor has that same weird soapy, almost chemical, like note that mixes with the bready and biscuity malt not too well. Minimal bitterness and a bit of perfumy character to the hops. Lighter bodied and fizzy with a slightly clingy doughy texture to the finish. Never would have pegged this as a EPA at all.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Murky orange-brown. Mild, dry, soapy aroma. Sandy and toasty, with some light sweet malt and non-aggressive hops. There is some English flavor in there, fruity with a touch of that fining taste, though I would doubt they are used. Pretty good actually, I really enjoyed the medium bodied mouthfeel, not thin and watery some other examples.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange color with a thick white meringue-like head. Mild wet grain and slight yeasty aroma. Taste is slightly sweet with a light earthy hop influence. Would be a nice brew to drink next to the grill.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BevMo. Slightly hazy orange gold color with a decent beige head. Aromas of caramel and citrus. Medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is biting citrus over caramel. Finish is a bit flatter, but there remains a good amount of bitter. More hop than I expected.
