2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear light gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is lightly citrusy and fruity hops with a minimal malt impact. The flavor is pretty bland, very minimal hop flavor and bitterness levels. Light, slightly bready pale malt base, a slight graininess on the finish. Light bodied and thin with fizzy carbonation. Pretty bland and boring stuff.

Pours the way you want your APA. Smells great, with a smooth hop grassy oral experience. Balanced sweetness and bitterness deliver a well rounded effort here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Easy drinking pale ale with slight hop bitterness. Gets a little grainy as it warms. I can see this as a decent bar beer with some food. Drink um cold.

Copper color with a small head. Very light piney hop aroma. Strong grainy flavor. Rough bitterness. Fairly full bodied. Some heavier Noble vegetal hop flavor as it warms.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, dark copper, with almost no head. Some floral notes in the aroma a flavor, but the malt and grain both are much more pronounced. I have to say this was kind of underwhelming.

Clean, fleeting taste. President of Excelsior Brewing talked about their goal of approachable beers. This brew fulfills their philosophy, and could appeal well as an all-purpose ale accessible by all levels of beer fans. Muted and safe, but I think that was the point.

Citrus nose. Pretty balanced brew. Kinda muted in a sense. Ok to put back a couple but nothing crazy.
