2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear medium tan with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit of apple, actually. Flavor is a bit sour, but not apple. Hard to say on this one. I donít know that I particularly like it, but itís not bad.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2012 Bottle: "This delightful brew is a medium-bodied pale ale that is balanced to perfection. It has a fresh hop aroma and a mild sweetness that finishes crisp and clean" it even better! Food Pairing: Blue Cheese arugula flatbread.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light amber color and is crystal clear.Pours with a small head that is off white and dense. It seems to linger a while but has no lacing. The aroma is pretty bland with malts and grain hulls. Hops are very light. Taste is like the nose, some malts, grain hulls maybe a little toasted too in there. Hops have some flavor but I canít quite put my finger on the taste.
A medium weight on the palette and not all that smooth. Finishes clean.
Although there is nothing really bad with this beer, there really isnít anything good with it either.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Originally reviewed: 2/12/09. Pours a darker gold with a good 2-finger white head resting on top. Decent amount of bubbles rising up. Retention is ok; great lacing. Smells of sweet malt and honey-kissed breads. Some light floral tones present as well.
Decent enough flavoring, but I had to mark this point as the lower one due to the slight beef-stew like quality to it. Tastes meaty to me. I love meat, but itís kind of weird in my beer. Otherwise itís wonderfully balanced. Slight hop bite at the finish. Pair that with a nice crisp mouthfeel, and you got yourself a good drinker. Recommend.

Pours a clear light amber with a little bit of white head. Aroma is light floral hops, a bit of honeysuckle in there too. Taste is very crisp Initial light malt punch with a nice hop balance and finishes clean with some sweetness. Very nice, my favorite of the Full Sails so far.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint caramel aroma. Clear light orange color. Flavor is sweetbread and caramel, decent bitter contrast. Fine medium body that has an almost syrupy quality to it. Exactly what I expect from a domestic pale.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Bottle. Big malt base with some hoppy citrus and a very light bitterness throughout. Finish is a bit on the weak side.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Full Sail Pale Ale has a thick, frothy, slightly off-white head and a clear, yellow-orange appearance, with a decent amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is of citrus (orange) and bready barley malt, but, overall, the smell is faint. Taste is of citrus, bread, some pine notes, and a good amount of pleasant hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and soft, and Full Sail Pale Ale finishes easy-drinking and sort of wet. Drinkability is very high with this one. Overall, itís a great beer. RJT
