Very average, down side very cloudy and way over carbonated. May be of bottle forgot to check if there is a date on it. Standard bitter hop aroma standard bitter hop flavor. Older sense f hops, not super fresh. Oh well

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy copper colour, minimal white head. Nice malty aroma, brown sugar and some citrus in the background. Bitter taste but not overwhelmingly so, very smooth. Mouthfeel is soft, not a whole lot of carbonation so it’s very easy to drink. Enjoyble beer overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper with an off-white head with decent lacing. The aroma is on the maltier side for a pale ale, unfolding notes of caramel and roast, while the hops contribute resin and fruitier aspects which are rather short-lived. The flavor follows the nose closely: caramelly and rather roasty for a pale ale up front, followed by resin and citrus peel on the mid-palate before a profound bitterness and warmth from the alcohol kick in to make up the long, dry finish. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours cloudy amber with a thin cream head. Smells of orange and booze and faintly pine too. Tastes fruit sweet with a mildly bready malt note and a complex but mild juniper-spice-hop twang on the finish. Carbonation and body are average with an acidic finish. Surprisingly complex pale ale... hopefully it remains so after the AB buyout.
