sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2014
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.

Tap at Pat’s Place. Pours clear amber with off-white head. Aroma of citrus and pine hops. .Tastes of pine hops, citrus and caramel. Light body and low carbonation. Decent cheap beer.

"Decent pale ale with a bready backbone of malt, but more than ample citrus edged hops in the aroma and flavor for the style. Better than the wheat..."

drowland (6025) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2014
9/11/14. 12oz bottle from Five Points. This bottle helps sum up what I hate about Valdosta. We rarely get anything new, so when we do, I always buy and rate it. 312 Pale hit stores this week and I spotted it today and grabbed it without thinking twice. I knew it wouldn’t be great, but hey, finally a new rate! I get home and pour the beer into a glass and my eye catches the little message on the back that says something about the beer being best within 180 days of the bottling date. I search around and find the bottling date on the neck... 27FEB14. You have got to be kidding me. Do the distributors really not care THAT MUCH. Shame on me for not looking for a bottling date before I got home. Man, AB is helping them so much. So anyway, here goes the rating for this over 6-month-old PALE ALE from CHICAGO that apparently sat in a warehouse somewhere the whole time. Amber pour, pretty clear, with a small khaki head that disappears completely and laces literally zero. Very bland aroma, a hint at earthy, floral hops and some doughy caramel. No hop in the flavor, no bitterness, just light malt water, caramel, pizza crust, and a metallic tinge. Eff me.

phaleslu (6461) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Draft at Great American Ball Park during a Cards-Reds game. Pours a clear orange-gold with a finger of barely off-white head that sticks around all the way down, albeit thinner. The hops are citrusy, leafy, and a bit sweaty, balanced by some sweet and pale malts, really mellow spice, wet grass, and a hint of veggies. Light-bodied, with a kind of dank, damp mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. I expected this to be a little more crisp and clean. It’s not bad, but I don’t feel the need to buy quantities of it.

snoworsummer (2140) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2014
From a bottle. Pours clear amber with a bubbly beige head and some lacing. Tastes like sweet pine hops, musky grains, fruity, citrus, grapefruit, with a bit of creamy caramel. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet grapefruit, spicy hops, and light pine.

sonnycheeba (3554) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear amber with frothy off-white head. Aroma is pale and lightly toasted malts, faint caramel, light spicy hops, and faint citrus. Flavor is dry malts, toast, medium hop bitterness, and faint grapefruit esters. Medium body and carbonation.

mtdewa1 (307) - rome, New York, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of mild hops, malts and grass. Grainy aroma follows. Taste is malty. Grass, hay and grains. Hops come through at end. Very light and sessionable. Ok at best.

b3shine (5424) - Indiana, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle to pint. Born On 01JUL14. Looks good for the style; a transparent vibrant orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells and tastes malt-forward with some bitter hops as well. Average on the palate. Not bad, but forgettable.

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, West Seneca, NY. Brilliant amber with a ring of white head; malty aroma; malty taste with a well balanced bitterness and a residual sweetness. A pleasant pale ale.

ElbowRocker (7) - - AUG 31, 2014 does not count
Bottle at home in IPA glass. Pours very clear, light copper. Aroma is hoppy but not overly strong. Medium mouth feel and not a ton of flavor. Decent balance with a bit of a hop finish. OK but not spectacular.
