There isn’t much aroma to speak of, but perhaps a bit of nail polish. Perhaps this batch is off. The beer is fairly cloudy, has limited head and thin lacing. This is a pretty typical American pale ale, but isn’t outstanding by any means.

Pours cloudy yellow with low white head. Aroma is slight pine, citrus, grapefruit and hints of pineapple. Taste is light bitter, not so much malt balance, with citrus and pineapple. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

Can, thanks Craig. Pale yellow with white head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Taste is slightly less hoppy, cereal, biscuit. Dry finish. Easy going.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale lemon, soft white head. Light eggy, soft pappery malt. Very little punchy flavour. Crisp enough carbonation and bitter enough finish, shame it didn’t get up in the gears quick enough.
Can, Cheers Zimbo

Can while camping at Ranch-a-Thon XIV. Aroma of faint floral hops but really not much coming out of the can. Taste is much more malt forward with some chemical and dirty hop flavors. Cardboard sneaks in. Bigger on the palate than I would prefer for the style. Hard to drink at only 5.6%.

It poured a clear copper color with a white head. The aroma was of faint floral along with some malty notes. The taste was of sweet malts with an earthy bitter finish. Very nice.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at home, thanks to an IP trade with Stuart, 15/03/14.
Lightly hazed golden amber with a well appointed off white head that retains well.
Nose is pale malt, straw, orange,
Taste comprises orange pith, light mineral notes, light hop presence, bread dough, lemon rind.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so APA, a pretty basic affair, not much hop presence, clean and easy drinking none the less - it’s a state tick !!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 3/3/14 from a 12oz can purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours hazy dark orange with a thick off-white head that slowly recedes to thick, messy lace. The nose is floral, grassy hops with a touch of light bready caramel malt. The flavor is about the same with some nice bitterness, but really focused on the floral hops. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long lightly bitter floral hops and touch of caramel finish. This is by no means a complex beer, but it is very refreshing and easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. can. Pours a light gold color, with a medium, frothy head and good lacing. The aroma is light hay, some dust and earthy hops, honeysuckle, and just a hint of some hard cheese. The flavor is sweet and fairly bitter, with good balance. Lightly bitter aftertaste that is not unpleasant. Medium body, sticky, and crisp. Overall, this is a nice, refreshing, and approachable beer. Sessionable, but not forgettable.
