2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy straw yellow with a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that dissipated quickly down to a small collar and possessed poor lacing.
The aroma was of a faint biscuit malt, a light floral hop and a sweet yeast with notes of citrus (orange and lemon), caramel and a sweet apricot odor.
The taste was a mild malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a slight fruity presence at first, and then got a very mild hop flavor with a light citrus note at the end. The flavor faded very quickly and was quite mild, leaving behind a very lightly hoppy sweet watery taste.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall a brew that possesses a very mild fruity hop flavor with just a hint of a sweetness and a low ABV, great light session beer...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wood, fruity hop aroma with notes of bread. Appearance is gold with an average head with below average head retention. Flavor consists of fruity, woody/spicy hop flavor with notes of bread and caramel. The beer is oxidized. Mouthfeel is light and carbonation is medium. Overall, it's a below average pale ale. The beer tastes oxidized and there is still 2 months left till it "expires." Plus it tastes watery.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange-yellow with a one finger white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of biscuit malts, pine, sweet malts, and some metallic notes. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some vanilla, herbal hops, and grass. Has a medium-light bod with a semi watery mouthfeel and a slightly bitter, medium-short finish. Overall, a rather mediocre XPA.

A pretty mild-mannered pale ale. Goes down easy, not overly hoppy or piney.

"another average offering - nothing bad. nothing stands out. a little cereal malt, a little sweet, and a bit of floral and bittering hops, but not very aromatic."

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Muted nose. Average carbonation. Straw yellow color - not my favorite. All beer flavors are mild and muted. No off-odors or flavors. Pleasant, but definitely not one I’d buy in the future.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Faint caramel malt aroma. Taste is a plain mild hops with a bit if a grass malt taste. Nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an almost clear golden yellow with a fluffy head. Some peach aroma. Taste has some bitterness with a dry finish. A bit too bitter to be a refreshing summer ale.
