3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Nose brings out pleasant floral hops, some tropical fruits, and some earthy herbal notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with crisp crackery malt, floral hops, a light tropical fruitiness and some herbal notes. Very fresh and crisp body. A pleasant pale ale that is quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I poured this ale into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a hazy, pale yellow body topped by a big, fluffy head of white foam, which lingered for quite a while. The aroma was floral, with some generous hopping (or at least I could assume so, since this is what I smelled through my cold.) Some slight sweetness, balanced by the bitterness of the hops, which quickly faded to a minimal aftertaste. This ale is medium bodied and had a smooth texture, making it quite drinkable.

Straw golden beer on tap at some Mexican restaurant served in a frozen bacardi mug... Well it earned eventually and revealed a nice hoppy pale. Floral and slightly citrusy, clean and refreshing.
