3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Copper coloured, small and quite stable foamy layer, slightly hazy with clumps (of yeast?); spicy hoppy nose with some bready, almost nutty aromas and some malt in the background; stronger, dry bitter flavour, light bodied; tart fruitiness, hop resins in the lingering dry bitter finish. Very good stuff !

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle: Aroma is medium hopped with a yeasty scent to it, Appearence is a clear copper color with a medium sized white head that lasts for quite a while. Nice spicey taste with a hop backing, nice bitterness to the taste, and some twang which I can not distingusish. Palate is somewhat watery, bitter, and quite carbonated. Overall, It’s a decent beer.

Bottle poured an amber/copper color with a white head. Floral hops dominate the aroma. Taste is also of floral hops and a little malt. This beer is very simple, straight-forward ale and a good one at that. Easily accessible in Missouri.

On tap at the Goose Island kiosk at Chicago O’Hare Airport. Poured cloudy, coppery brown with a tan, lacy head. Nose is malt and yeast with a slight floral note. The nose is malty with a nice hoppy finish. Nicely balanced. Cost an arm and a leg at the airport, though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught from The Pub poured into shaker - Pours amber with a tint of red with a 1 finger white head; Sweet malt, hops, a little spice to the nose; Floral and pine hops, some malt on the initial taste; Not bitter at all; A clean, hoppy, piney backtaste; A very refresing beerthat I enjoyed. The carbonation was a bit heavy to start with, but I think that may have been the lines at the bar. It did die down eventually. Good stuff!

Good pale ale, but too little hop taste compared to their IPA. Part of variety pack.

A wonderfully fresh and hoppy brew. Very drinkable, just perfectly simple. I like it a lot. It isn’t overly impressive, but it just works.
