4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crystal clear gold with a small white head. The aroma is slightly toasted malt with a touch of caramel and citrusy hops. The flavor is even more malty, and very tasty. Hops are a bit subdued but work wonderfully with the malt. Extremely well balanced and very tasty. Best actual pale ale I’ve had in a long time.

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.
