3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale orangish gold with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma of a mix hop profile, herbal, citrus, and floral, strong malt and bread, and definitely a decent bit of spice. Flavor matches all too well with a slight sweetness to it. Decent, refreshing, but nothing I would mow the lawn with.

Cloudy yellow orange with minimal head. Slightly peppery hop aroma. Taste is bitter as anticipated, with a sweetness underneath and a faint spicy finish. Refreshingly light bodied, but the bitterness hangs around. It’s good, but Founder’s definately makes better ales.

An okay pale ale with not too much hoppy goodness. Good for hot summer day but nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Ales by Mail. Dark gold to.light copper, very little head. Spruce, caramel and grapefruit in the aroma. Taste is more complex and pleasurable: a fruity bittersweet note with underlying sweet malt tunes slightly bitter before the finish. Floral hop on the aftertaste. A classic pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours fairly clear amber with a very little white head. The aroma features a combination of malts and hops; piney and citrusy hoppiness is paired with nutty maltiness and a touch of caramel. Taste is initially light sweet, later light to medium bitter. American style hoppiness is balanced and supported by a solid malt base; pine and resin are strongest flavours but also malty flavours appear. The palate is light to medium bodied, moderate in carbonation. Quality APA – not just a one-dimensional hop bomb, also fairly malty.
