3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a off-white head that fades over a clear amber body. Aroma has a bit of a honey note with caramel, and hops. Very weak. Taste is hoppy and caramel. A real run of the mill pale ale. Fizzy and dry.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. pours a subtle amber with a quickly dissipating head, the smell is of a citrus and floral aroma with a slight spice that permeates above the glass. Initial hit to the palate, is subpar, quick hints of citrus but a piney, maltiness quickly superceeds the taste and Im left with nothing more than a bitter aftertaste. Hops arent quite up to snuff and its just an average ale...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle found at a mellowmushroom in alabama while visiting the inlaws. Clear amber pour with fair tan head. Light honey malt and faint hop aroma. Citrus and floral hop flavor with bitter bite on the tail. Perfectly average and boring for this style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Tea-coloured amber, clear, thin white head. Modestly hopped caramel profile, sweet, leaning towards being thin. Easy drinking, but nothing outstanding here. Nice to know that the profits go towards the San Diego Fire Dept (at least that’s what the vendor said to me).

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A light floral hop aroma. Not aggressive at all, this is rather light and floral, with a small hop bite in the finish. Really quite nice-smooth throughout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Poured an amber color with a smallish off white head. Aroma of sweet malt with some earthiness and caramel. Flavor was ok; pretty sweet with a good amount of caramel. Not too much hopping at all. Fairly standard but nothing actively bad about it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good everyday beer. Malty and a hint of belgium sweetness. Some chalky bitters. Smells like cheap beer. Nice clean and quick taste. Doesn’t linger and I don’t think it should. Wouldn’t turn this down when watching a ball game.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Clear amber ale with a slight orange tint and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is mostly malty with notes of toffee and caramel… no huge hop presence. Medium-bodied with a very creamy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Leans just a hair on the bitter side of balance. Nice, crisp, lightly bitter finish. Muchos kudos to douglas88 for shipping this bottle my way!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. BottleSmell a bit of fruityness, licorice and rye. Nothing remarkably impressive. No head at all, and very little residual lace. Hazy honey/dark amber color with yeasties swirling around in it. Not much in the way of flavor at all. thin initial taste, and thin bitter leftovers. None of the fruityness I smelled earlier. Bland. Eh.
