3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer appears average as it has a golden/amber hue that passes through a lot of light, has a mild white head, and leaves very little lacing on the glass. The beer smells average as it is an okay blend of hops and malts, mildly citrusy. The taste is decent as the beer is moderately hoppy/ citrusy with a decent malty finish that transitions well. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer is carbonated okay and leaves you somewhat dry and mildly crisp. Overall, a decent pale that doesn’t burn you out like some do and blends the malty/hoppy flavors together okay.

On tap at The Gamble Mill. Nice citrusy pine hop aroma with mild caramel sweetness and a bit of soap. Deep golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium body and carbonation. Starts medium dry with light caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Rounded bitterness to start that gets stronger and more chalky at the finish. Nutty dry, mild astringent after. Decent pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Darker than average copper pour, with a strong hop scent and nice malts. Flavors are solid, robust and clean. This place knows its hopwork, in my opinion. Lemony, floral and bold citrus hop flavors over a working man’s malt sugars. Balanced, consistent and drinkable.
