3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
for some reason i had remembered this as being a terrible watery beer, but upon a second tasting i was surprised with a nice pale ale--darker in color than i had expected, a deep almost amber coloring with a full hoppy nose. full of flavor and hop, a bit fruity and a bit thinner than i'd have liked, but overall quite a solid beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Copper Hue, Passes Most Light, Thick Off White Head, Great Lacing
S: Bready, Mild Herbal Hops, Mild Crackers
T: Bready, Mild Grainy Malts, Mild Herbal Hops
M: Great Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Drying
Overall, a pretty sessionable pale ale but the hop character is very boring and matted down by the malt character.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: It was poured into a notched pint glass from the tap at the Ellicottville Brew Pubís Fredonia Location.
Appearance: The body was a perfect amber color with a bright white head. The head slowly faded to just a ring of creamy foam about half way down the glass. At the top it left some nice lacing.
Smell: There was a nice mix of sweet roasty grains and solid citrus/piney hops.
Taste/Palate: It has a good medium body with light bready sweetness, mellow roasted grain and citrusy/piney hops. All this is in good balance with the hops popping out in the finish and leaving some pleasant bitterness to linger briefly on the tongue.
Notes: This is a fine example of a nicely balanced American Pale Ale.

Pretty light amber color. Flavor of pine, which I like. A good tasting beer that would be hard for me to drink more than one or two. Good body with a log long finish.
