3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz. bottle straight from the brewery. Pours pale malt gold fizzy white head. Nose is floral, bready, citrus, sweet fruit. Taste is upfront sweet and tasty citrusy hops leading way to a more sweet pale malt and hop bouquet. Hop presence more like an IPA just of course not as strong, just throughout. Nice pale ale, hops don’t become unbalanced after consecutive drinks.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a hazy copper color. The aroma here is very earthy, a little biscuity with grassy notes and damp grains which I also noticed in the 825 stout. After half a goblet, I decided this may be for English pale lovers. It’s balanced and easy drinking but also lacks serious citrus character and the malts are very prominent. The finish is earthy, musty, and I want to say tart or metallic, but I can’t commit to it. It’s a fair pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden ish copper, thin ring of white head. The nose smells very ’German’ with some mildly earthy biscuit and toast, with a subdued but very present grassy hop tone. Flavor starts with some toffee and strong leafy/grassy hop tones, a bit of marzen flavors, biscuit, leafy bitterness, and lots of lagered toast flavors. Interesting. And delightful!

Malt and light caramel nose with some orange citrus. Taste is biscuit malt and round palate with balanced bitterness. Nice pale ale.
