3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle at home. Pours a hazy straw gold, rather opaque. Aroma is subtle -- mostly citrus hops, a hint of something floral, yeast, and a very light bread malt. Taste-wise the beer balances its malts and hops pretty well, though both flavors are subtle. The palate isnít very crisp, which leaves me with the impression that the beer is a bit flabby. The flavors donít pop much, either, though itís great for a light food accompaniment. Pretty tasty session beer, but thatís about all I can say for this one.

Light floral aroma, not strong. Has a golden color with a thick white head. It has a floral taste with pine, not overly strong in the hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint pour of crisp goldenrod, or slightly more pale. Nose is light citrus and malt notes... I feel like thereís more there, but Iím not getting it. Flavor Iíd much more noticeable, hop forward and crisp, light apple notes and lighter citrus. Quite dry palate and light body. Not a bad one, but drinkable. I feel like Iíve gad this one in better times, but it just seems light today

12 oz bottle for a buck. Pours a hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, a little grassy and doughy. Taste is similar with none of the flavors really standing out. Average body. A decent pale ale, I guess, Not really my style though.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 0.355l. Slightly hazy orange golden color with small creamy off-white head, fair lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus and toasted malt. Taste starts with smooth and rich malty backbone, following is refreshing citric with dry mouthfeel and long bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Nice sample for 1000th rating in my private database :)

Bottle. Appearance: slightly cloudy amber, thick white head. Aroma: malty grassy hoppiness, slight citrus and strawberry. Flavour: mild enough, grassy, lemon and strawberry, flavour does intensify as time goes on. Decent long bitter finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Stern golden, slightest haze beneath a decent white head. Bullish floral hop nose. Very clean and simple APA. Shaved juiciness, dried out straw mopping this up a bit but making it more drinkable. Lemony, not massively hopped up front but a floral. Agressive pale malt and carbonation throughout. Heated bitterness on the finish, exemplary clean lemon finish that doesnít spoil it. Gallons of this could be drank with good reason.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle. Small, white head. Limited lacing. Murky yellow-orange in glass. Lemon nose with floral hop notes. Upfront bitterness, but but not going too far in this direction, with passion fruit and basic malts behind on taste. Dry palate.

Bottle, a gift. This beer have a good taste and a good smell of hops, it it very light in the colour with almost no head. It is the good taste and the way it feels in the mouth that makes this a good pale ale. Not the best and not the worst beer.
