4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Purchased a single bottle at State Line Liquors while traveling through MD. Wish I’d bought a 6-pack as my taste buds tell me that it’s a Pale Ale of which Baltimore should be proud. Unusually attractive aroma primarily of a piney/citrus hop nature. Subdued hoppy flavor with a crisp and dry finish. Nice lingering bitterness on the palate. One of the better Pale Ales I’ve tried in quite some time.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I have to believe this is better than the sample I had. Draft: decent looking but seemed oddly out of balance and was thin. These days if it’s not a great APA you may as well not make it. I’ll give it another try if i get the chance.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Full Tilt Pale Ale. Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a nice amber color with a small off white head. The nose has light cracker notes with some citrus and slight floral notes. The flavor has a more pronounced hop presence. Solid citrus and earthy bitterness paired with the crackery malt notes. Light to medium body with average carbonation leading to a medium bitter finish. A pretty solid pale ale.

Baltimore Pale Ale is an American-Style Pale Ale in that it leans IPA similar to the pale ales in Southern California. The dry-hopping of Columbus creates a huge hop aroma. This beer finishes light for a 6.3% ABV beer. The best pale ale in Maryland many have said.
