3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had this stuff just after hiking up Half Dome in Yosemite, so take this rating with a gain of salt. I canít comment on the appearence because it was by the bottle and I did not have a glass... Anyway, it was kind of a heavy tasting beer with a malty aftertaste and not too bitter. Overall it made the end of 18 miles and a 5000í accent much better...

Copper color, medium head. Mellow medium malts and hops. A very nice English Pale. Lots of flavor, not a lot of bitterness. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is malty with a slight bitterness.

Good balance between malts and hops. A bit crisp which cuts into the overall flavor of the beer. Not offending and will appeal to most as it is fairly light.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Fairly ordinary and straightforward, but not bad.

Nice aroma, could be a bit stronger. Nice appearance, but the head could last a bit longer. When you find a good beer, you have to nitpick over the small stuff.
