2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was a good example of a pale ale (american)). Orange color, hoppy, spcy finish. Noticeably hops of different character. Woods and pine notes on aftertaste. This may contribute to a barrel aged brew a couple months? Definite citrus notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap of course. Pours a light hazy orange with a small white froth. Aroma is hoppy, mostly citric with a touh of pine and a definite grainy note some sweet doughiness. Flavor starts witha sweet caramel and bready character before opening up with some citric and a touch hebal hops. Finishes a touch bitter though still very sweet and a lingering graininess. Medium body and a sharper carbonation. Okay, decent pale Ale balanced but nothing stands way out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap: Pour is a nice golden color with a frothy white head that retains fairly well. This, to me, was a welcome respite from Stone Pale. Light biscuits are present with a juicier than expected citrus note. Sure, its slightly boring but it really works fairly well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden yellow pour with a small white head. Decent lacing. The aroma is mellow but pleasant, with cirtusy hops and grainy malt. There is a nice balance of sweet and bitter in the flavor, with biscuity malt and spicy, citrus hops on the finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

On tap at O’Hare airport L concourse. Deep golden, honey-colored pour, nice white head with good lacing. Faint hop nose. Taste is bready malt, balanced with a pleasantly hopped finish. Well balanced and definitely sessionable, a very nice drinker indeed.
