3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a nice surprise of a pale ale. Aroma was nice. Just a hint of orange with sweet light malt. Pour was a nice light medium cloudy gold with a one finger white head. Taste is very full for such a small ABV. Just slightly sweet with notes of orange kept in check by the sweet juicy malt. No hops here. Decent carbonation. Nice beer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with a white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus over a malt base. The flavor has the malt underneath with a nice holly balance. The orange comes in the after taste. Quite refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Roth’s. Very hazy on the pour. Amber with a little red in color. Sweetish nose with a touch of hops. Sweet and malty base. A bit of hop character. The maltiness seems to dominate. Might be a hint of fruitiness. Fairly standard sweet pale ale. Once I got used to the sweetness, some nice hop character shows through the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy dark golden orange color with banana yellow edges and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Nice retention, taking longer to settle than expected and leaving large streaks of soapy lacing behind. A little darker and cloudier than I prefer but this beer has nice head retention and lacing.
Slightly earthy floral hop aroma with grassy pine and dank resins countered by pale malt and sweet, zesty citrus. The blood orange stands out with zest and fleshy citrus fruit. A little bit of bread/biscuit from the malts but they don’t hinder the hops or citrus.
Fuller bodied than expected with a crisp hop bite and some zesty citrus fruit sweetness. Dank and earthy with some grassy pine and bitter resins countered by a strong citrus/blood orange character. Orange peel, ruby red grapefruit, mango and pineapple sweetness but the blood orange is very prominent. Again, the malt presence is light with some bread and caramel providing nice balance without hindering the hop and citrus flavors. Well balanced and easy to drink.
