3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Millerís Ale House. Dark gold color. Thin white head with decent lacing. Aromas of sweet malt and floral hops. Upfront explosion of fresh hops, herbal tones, slight bitter citrus. Whatís really noticeable is the long, lingering hop bite. Itís almost too much. Seems like it needs a bit more malt sweetness to balance it out. Fairly dry finish. Medium to light mouthfeel. It has the body of a pale ale, but this drinks like an IPA pale ale. Definitely not bad. Iíd like to explore this one again.

on tap at the brew pub. Four String Brass Knuckle Pale Ale is a lighter amber clear beer with a firm head of white bubbles. Nose is grapefruit and lighter malt. Taste is a nice bit of grapefruit zest and clover honey. Body is lively and thinner. a very nice APA.

12 oz can at home. Pours a dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, a hint of caramel, citrus, grassy, herbal hops, grapefruit, finishes kind of bland, dry, ok but there are many superior options.

Draft at Nation, served in a pint glass. Pours a clear deepish golden color with a small eggshell white head that settles into a ring. Pale and sweet malt backbone holds together leafy, grassy, citrusy, and slightly spicy hops, with some green and black tea for measure. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tea-like, slightly malty, barely bitter mouthfeel. Not really a ísession ale,í as they say, because itís a little too heavy on the palate for that and the ABV is to high. But itís a good APA nonetheless.

can @ Party Town/ Florence KY --- Clear medium orange amber, frothy white 2" head, splashes of lace. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste is a little malt, followed by solid, but pleasing, citrus hops. The hops donít load up enough to drown the malt, so the finish is somewhat balanced. A nice enough pale ale, but I can see no way to justify it as a session brew (5.75%abv? no way; on top of that, a very full body)

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear orange amber with white head. Aroma is fairly sweet and not too prominent with caramel and some piney notes. Taste is moderates bitter and mild to moderately sweet with flavors of caramel, toffee, biscuits, pine and grassy floral flavors. Overall average for style.

Can shared. Poured a darker orange color with white head. The aroma is bitter and citrus. Medium malt base with the citrus on the front end and a long lasting bitterness on the back end. Wouldnít really call this a session beer. Itís not offensive in any respect drinkable but itís just another beer off the shelf.
