3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Dark gold to amber color with a white head. Nice earthy ansd spicy English hop aroma with some underlying toasty malt. The flavor has a light toasted malt character, snappy earthy hops, a touch of fruit, and a mild caramel sweetness. Hoppy, but well balanced by the malt flavors. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. I dug this overall. Follows the balance of an APA, but with a nice English malt and hop character.

This ale had almost no aroma. Was a crystal clear amber color that was bitter at first then sweet then back to bitter. Overall a good combo. It was light bodied and crisp. Not bad

Tap. Dark amber. Malt and hop aroma. Quick bite but also a quick finish. Not a lot of depth to this pale ale.

Very pleasant tasting pale ale. Fairly bitter, a bit like an IPA. Thin head, a little carbonation.
