3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample at New Beer Dist. Pretty nice Pale Ale. Pours a light amber with a medium, pure white head. Nose is somewhat hoppy, with definite floral notes. Flavor is quite earthy, holds some nice bitterness, and is balanced out a bit with some malty sweetness. Finish leaves a tad of bitter bite. Very drinkable.

A hazy yellow pour with rocky white head. A nice hoppy nose with mild pine aroma. The light to medium body has average carbonation and a slightly thin texture. It begins with medium bitterness, but finishes fairly clean.

Serving: Draft at Fireworks.
It pours a slightly hazy, light amber color with a thin, white ring around the edge of the glass for a head. The nose is full of pale malt notes, a touch of florals, and some malt sweetness. Light and mild. The taste brings a bit of honey, grass, florals, and the pale malt notes too. The mouthfeel is medium-light with medium-light carbonation and a medium-short finish. Overall itís a great session beer with mellow, easy flavors. A great everyday brew.

The aroma, flavor and body all seems to be lacking on this beer. maybe this was just a bad batch. the aroma is floral hops. the appearance is a pale reddish gold color, white head. The flavor was hoppy, flowes and citrus, some caramel. the finish was piney hops. Thin to medium in body. Not great.

12 oz. bottle. Pours like a classic pale ale, amber gold body with white head, quickly reduces to some bubbles floating on the top of the beer. Smell is floral hops, pine, buttery sweet corn malt. Taste is pretty balanced, with a crisp hoppy bite giving way to malts underneath, with some hop bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied, not thick, goes down easy. Would be a good session; a good example of this style.

Pretty tastey brew all around. pours a vibrant copper colour with a small white floral head. Hop goodness around the palate, fruity and sweet/bitter battle all the way through. Finishes very clean

bottle on 3/7/09... straw yellow pour with a white head... malt forward nose with some grassy hop notes... light to medium body with slight hops... more bitter than some pale ales but the hops feel pretty low in alphas... just feels off to me... lacks some body and depth... a very light pale ale. ok.

Iím not going to lie...I was a bit disappointed with this weak Pale Ale from a brewery known for kicking me in the ass with their high gravity / abundantly hopped beers. Pours golden with a thin head, aroma is faint of hops and you canít really taste the hops. I know this is a Pale Ale as opposed to an IPA so the hop content will go down, but I just thought it was weaker than it couldíve been. Iíll stick to what I like from this great brewery.
