3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Nice mellow hop resin. Little pine and floral
Appearance: dark for a pale, but only a little. Golden in color
Taste:citrus presence with a light bitter finish. On the dry side but not overtly and well within style. Very good
Palate: very nice mouthfeel and presence. Hops add character without over loading it. Perhaps a little heavy for a summer session, but very quaffable.
Overall: there are few beers I buy repeatedly these days as there is just so many new styles and offerings to try. This has become a solid go to for me when I just want a beer I can drink and enjoy. Never disappointed and on sale for less the $8.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Mollie Stones. This one walks the line with caramel toasty malt and floral citrus hops. Not too sweet, not too bitter. A lot going on. Smooth. Not earth shattering but definitely complex and tasty. Well crafted.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Hazy golden with a full, off-white head.
Aroma: Crisp grapefruit and grainy maltiness, a little floral and more citrus, fairly clean.
Palate: Medium body with moderate to low carbonation.
Flav.: Maltier than the nose with some Vienna or Munich, still has decent citrus hop notes with a lightly floral aspect; dry with decent bitterness and a clean, citrus and Vienna malt finish.
Fair to good.
