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.

Nice citrus aroma, mild amber pour with a white-ish head. Smooth herbal flavor with a dry hoppy finish.

I’m 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 can’t 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 could’ve been. I’ll stick to what I like from this great brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is of light sweet malt, some citrus hops. Taste is sweet but the hops are all pretty light. The hops are citrusy and not all that present. Some other unexpected grain notes are also noticable. Not sure of the age of the bottle but, this one may have been on the shelf too long. Body is medium and the finish is light. Overall an okay brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a murky yellow-amber with a crazy big fluffy white head that lingers too long. Sweet aroma, with lemon peel, malt, yeast, and citrus hops. Taste is crisp, of citrus hops, preserved lemons, yeast, and malt. Lingering crisp bitterness that ends watery. Tasty, but I think it’s sat around a bit too long.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent Pale Ale. There was nothing very notable here, but it does go down smooth and drinkable. Could be a good session beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light floral aroma. Hazy, light golden color with off-white head. Light bodied, thin, malty sweetness with a tinge of citrus. Lightly carbonated with an abrupt sweet finish. Highly drinkable, albeit thin, and seemingly light on the hops for a pale ale. I was expecting more.
