2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew from a bar poured a small white colored head of foamy finely sized mostly diminishing bubbles. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and finished with a weak tingly feeling but of medium hops. The aroma was mild and hoppy. The flavor contained notes of hops, mild citrus, and semi-thick malt. An OK brew, but not one I would buy again. Goose Island can do much better.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Yellow, highly carbonated & gassy. Unpleasant bitterness-one dimensional. No malt character or yeast esters-more like a lager. Some hop aromatics, but kind of a metallic taste. Probably from Baldwinsville.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 1/14/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral/earthy hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, light pepper/pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/floral/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness that lightly increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately grainy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice American pale ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/floral/earthy hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light copper beer with a white head. Aromas of mild hops. Tastes of biscuit, flowery/herbal hops, lemon zest, and some caramel. Bittersweet finish. A bit watery and bland. Not doing much to stand out. Yet it is easy enough to drink out in hot weather.

on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Clear light amber color, full white head, sheets of lace. Taste is sweet malt and toast that adds solid carbonation and fresh grass on the swallow, then a jolt of hops that allows some malt to remain. Light, solid on a warm afternoon.
