2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle from DrSilverworm. Pours a slightly hazy orange golden color with a medium sized white head that quickly disappeared. The aroma and flavor have pale, dry toasted malts, faded hops, light fruity, the lightest hint of bitterness to the finish. There really isn’t much going on here good or bad.

Bottle. Thanks to Drake. Light amber with a small head. Nose is pretty neutral. Bready with some honey. Little else. Taste is similar. Bread and some apple and pear. Light body, active carbonation. Overall, heh, "English Pale Ale".

335ml bottle. Ingested with way too many other beers to find it redeemable, it is light slightly hoppy, ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tan amber, ok head. This one is a grain-forward pale ale, with clean crisp hoppiness. Appealing, freshly-milled cereal grains in the aroma and flavor. Medium to full body--quite enjoyable throughout.

Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip #50. 12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Lexington. Pours an amber color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pale malt, herbal hops. The taste is stone fruits, citrus hops, pale malts and a slight corny note. Thin bodied.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Secret Krampus beer #7, thanks Peter. Another quality selection.
Pours golden, slightly hazy, fluffy white head, and not a lot of lacing or retention (though it’s a little better than the pale lagers that I’ve been opening). Aroma is grass, lemon, and sweet oxidized malt. Flavor is sweet and stale hops with some bitterness and a touch of cardboard. No idea when this was bottled but it certainly didn’t hold up well. Medium body with a decent amount of carbonation. Meh at best.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pint on tap at Holler’s, for $4.50. Clear golden orange color, little sort of bubbly white head, fades to a little amount around the edges, doesn’t leave any lace. At first impression, I thought this was a lager. Very bready, malt forward flavor, light caramel malt, minimal hop characteristic. If this is a pale ale, it’s a very cheap, totally un-craft pale ale. Medium body. Soft, stronger carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Mild bitter, lighter sweet taste. Sub-par pale.
