PPRBSG 09. Pours a light clear golden and a nice head. Aroma is lemon and herbs, citrus with bubblegum phenolics and crackery malts. Flavor is a bit bland- cracker doughy yeasty bubblegum, fruity orange zest, lemon and a bit bready as it warms. Somewhat clean and smooth.

This was my first beer from Evolution and I was very happy. The apa was very hoppy with a good malting and mouthfeel throughout. There was no watery taste and it was just a nice enjoyable beer. I wish more APA’s had this flavor.

20100117 12oz bottle from State Line. I was pretty excited to get my hands on this one because for an upstart local brewery Evolution’s beers have been a bit tricky to come by initially. Fairly basic American pale ale. Light, clear amber with small white head. Aroma is mild but some notes of pine, citrus. Body is decent, medium light with even eff, a bit sweet up front, drying across the middle, and pleasant finishing bitterness. Somewhat bland stuff, unfortunately, and not quite sturdy. In fact, it couldn’t quite hold its own vs some fairly mild cheddar cheese.

pours golden and a little hazy with thin head. aroma i yeasty and earthy. mouthful is more of the same with a little hop hidden in there. definitely needing more hops for a pale ale..

Sampled on tap at RFD in Washington DC. Pours a transparent golden amber with almost zero head. I think the lack of head was more a result of a bad pour than bad head retention. The aroma was actually very nice, citrus hops, oranges, a little sugary candy, lemons, a touch earthy. Flavor was not as good. Nothing bad, per se, but a watery finish really lets this beer down. Flavors of sweet malts, some light orange, some light lemon. Needed more kick in the flavor.

Bottle. Pour was golden straw to a slight amber, haziness to it all. The aroma was faint fruity elements, some mustiness. The flavor was faint fruity esters, herbal, earthy, musty, citrus. Body was light to moderate. An uninspiring overall pale ale, not my preferred take, and nothing to write home about, although I was wanting to like this local(-ish) brew. OK.

GMCC2181 (1498) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 7, 2009
Bottle picked up at SL. Poured into a sam adams specialty glass. Weak golden yellow color, small head. Decent aroma of some lights hops and corn? For a pale ale its not bad at all. Light hops, little earthiness to it. Light in texture. Overall good for its style but I would rather have an IPA/DIPA.... 12-7-1941.... Drank this one for the troops!

Draught sample at the tasting room. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of citrus, some caramel, peppery. Tastes of light citrus, resiny, earthy, some tea like elements.

Nice caramel malt back drop, citrus and pine hops, moderate bitterness, clean finish. A bit thin, but I enjoyed this, very drinkable.

Maybe I shouldn’t have had this draft after finishing off an Arrogant Bastard... very medocre pale. Watery through and through. Minor citrus notes. Nothing much to speak of.
