2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours yellow or slightly golden with a thick fluffy white head. Slight aroma of malts, a little hop underneath. Not hoppy. Malty. More of an amber ale. Not bad, but mislabeled.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden color. Smells a little skunky like a lager, actually. Taste is too malty for the style. I don’t get any of the hoppiness coming through. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Straw yellow pour with small white head and good soapy lacing. Hoppy with a crisp pils like flavor and a bunch of malt. They revamped this beer so it is much better then the reviews would suggest.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Wow, bad luck for my first couple beers back in the states. Had this in Princeton from a mixed sixer at wegmans. Definitely a misfire for the style. Pours very pale. Taste is astringent but not exactly bitter. Hops just taste weird here. Smell is odd as well, with an almost sour maltiness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus and grass. Taste is sweet with faint hints of bitterness. Light bodied and very easy to drink, a lawnmower beer and sessionable. Unfortunately a little bland for an APA.
