2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at FH, this one missed the mark for me, no real hoppy flavor from the hops at all, means a boring german style pale? perhaps. herbal is a good way to put it, as the brewer has done, just doesnt jive with what I want from a pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Pours a clear burnt orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt, floral hops, light fruits. Flavor of very bready/stale malt, burnt malt, toasted malt, light fruits. Flavor is a bit stale, and a touch sweet, very disappointing. Aroma was ok but flavor was quite underwhelming.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Hints of fruit with herbal and floral hop aromas.
Appearance: Clear dark gold with light head.
Taste: Medium-heavy sweetness with a light sourness in finish.
Palate: Full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, long finish.
Overall: The maltiness of this beer is a little overwhelming, isn’t mellowed or balanced by the hops. I’m a little disappointed.
