2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle via trade. Poured an unimpressive hazy center light brown with clear outter edges underneath a small and quick fading white foamy head. Aroma of old stale hops, bad bread, rotting lemons and a hint of peach. Thinner bodied with avergae carbonation and a watery finish. Flavor is watered down compared to the aroma, notes of fruit, peach, nectarine, seltzer and grain. Meh.

Pours copper with no head and little carbonation. Smells hoppy, grassy and slightly citrusy. The taste is very dry and hoppy with a lemon finish. Very good beer.

Bottle. Dark orange with lacing light white/tan head. Sweet floral nose. Sweet, mild, light-bodied, mild mineral/chalk and not a palate cleanser.

Hazy copper color with a thin white head. Faint aroma of citrus and a hint of grass. Not much flavor. Sweet citrusy and not much else. Overall, okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A light crisp Pale Ale, with aromas of citrus hops and grapefruit, very light straw color, with a palate that is equally as soft, faint hops, copper and grapefruit are the strongest identifiable tasting notes. this Pale Ale isn’t going to rock anyones world but it is a very enjoyable beer for a hot summer day or kicking back with good friends

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy copper, lifeless looking, not showing much effervescence or head. Nose has faint hops, citric and floral. Biscuity caramelly syrupy malt background in the aroma, lightly oxidized, sherry-like. Very low carbonation, thin malts, papery sherry like, a bit like an old ale, with a medium bitter finish. Must be a significantly old bottle, except that I just noticed how similar my comments are to many other ratings...

On tap at the Olympia brewpub. A tangy version of a pale ale (good tang or sign of lines that need cleaning? I’m not so sure). It’s a pretty basic, fairly boring version.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the grain with some grass and orange citrus notes mixed in. The flavor is a mix of grass, wheat and some orange. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
