This a good, but weak ale. I definitely prefer mine just a bit stronger than this..

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: dark amber with off white head, made of tiny bubbles. Aroma rather muted, just faint tree bark bitterness to it. Well balanced malt/bitter flavor until a decent bitter kick at the end, again more like tree bark than hoppy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Nice clear orange-copper ale. Moderate head formation which quickly fades leaving no lacing. Lightly hoppy aroma is earthy. Light bodied. A bit overcarbonated. Nice hop bitterness which again tends to be earthy. Fair.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap: Weak aroma is lightly sweet with a flowery hop presence. Transparent amber with a small white head. Lightly sweet with some caramel and a touch of fruit. Some pretty big flowery hoppiness in the finish. More so than most bitters.
