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.

Bottle from total wine chantilly. Pours golden with a thin white head. Nothing on the nose. Malty on the tongue. Not much hop presence there. Finishes blah. Eh!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Bright brassy gold color topped by a medium-sized rocky white head. Mild grainy malt nose with notes of tropical fruit. Tangy biscuit malt flavor is balanced by a crisp citrus hop character. Lacks real depth or complexity, but very drinkable.

Pours a clear gold with a small short lived white head. Smells of biscuit, hint of spruce. Taste is sweet, mildly bitter - biscuit, honey, floral hops. Very mild for a pale ale, malty for the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
light yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of biscuits, honey, and a bit of hops. Pretty clean, easy drinking. People probably rate this low expecting a bitter hop bomb pale ale, but I still dig what’s going on here.

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.
