3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Light amber-yellow. Aroma heavily lemon citrus, some malt, light bread/caramel. Flavor toward malt, and shockingly soapy, blech. Okay as a session-ish spring beer but nothing more.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted on 8/23/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours clear bright orange with an average white head that leaves a thick ring of lace and one spot in the center of the glass. The nose is caramel bread malt with fruity pine hops. The flavor has a bit of nice bitterness, but is really more focused on the somewhat sweet caramel malt and the fruity/bitter hops underlying. The body is medium with average carbonation and a medium fruity and bitter hops finish. Very strange berry fruit hops throughout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Juicy fruity aroma, with green apples, plum, and even some bubble gum esters. Sweet and malty up front with the slightest notes of toast. Finishes dry but well balanced. Really interesting.

Crisp and well balanced. Wheat and floral hops and a little sweetness. Nothing spectacular but a good summer beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 5.4% and there is a bottled on date. Appearance: The body has a golden amber color with good clarity and just a few bubbles of carbonation. The pour produced a tall thick head, white In color and fairly long lasting. As it slowly settles it makes lots of cool lacing on the glass. Smell: There is a nice sweet aroma coming from the glass. I get a nice balance of bready and biscuity malt with some light citrusy hops. I also get very light fruity notes of apple and dried apricots. Taste / Palate: It has a nice medium bodied base of wheat like breakfast cereal, pale bready and biscuity malt with fruity dried apricot like notes mixing in. The feel is smooth and the carbonation is almost creamy. It finishes with a light balance of citrus hop bitterness.
Notes: I like this Pale Ale for it light hop balance and harmony of flavors. I don’t expect Pale Ales to be IPA want to be hop bombs. I could drink quite a few of these.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Moriartys. Top of a keg. Clear orange gold pour with a large frothy white head. Lots of lace. Earthy autumn leaves. Cornbread. Some off-putting medicinal orange notes. Herbal cough drops. Fuller than most but the flavors do not work. Just not feeling this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Disappointing. One of my least favourites from Goose Island. Golden orange body with short-lived white head, but nice lacing. Grainy, borderline corn aroma, sweet malts. Taste is sweet dried fruit, a faint touch of hops, bubblegum. Basically though this is more like an amber ale or something. Uninspired but drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Unusual Flavour (complex if I am being generous) something akin to Nelson Sauvignon but not quite? It promises more than it delivers. Its OK, best with food, not really a session beer and I would choose other beers over this. One to overlook for something more interesting.
