2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
When I pop the lid, I thought yeasty, but there is some choco aroma in there someplace. It pours looking like a dunkel weizen, light brownish and cloudy. Taste certainly has hop preservative in there. I also get a hint of chocolate passing thru to the taste. Hey this is not APA, it’s EPA! This is right there with other English Pale ales, on par with Ottos Mt. Nittany Pale Ale, Great Divide Denver Pale Ale and Spanish Peaks Black Dog Ale.

English hops and malt in the nose, golden body, small white head. Maybe EKG and Fuggles: herbal, grassy hops with a bit of fruitiness. Mild body, refreshing, nicely balanced, under-rated here.

This beer gets max appearance because they have cool beer taps. If you’re in Chicagoland then you must have this beer

On tap. Strong notes of spice (nutmeg, ginger), actually reminded me of Vernor’s soda. Slightly grassy and hoppy as well, providing balance. Thin, but left nice lacing. Great stuff!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice looking clear orange color with a foamy white head. Predominantly malty aroma with just a hint of flowery hops discernible. Hops also take a back seat in the flavor. I was hoping for a bit more bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at O’Hare. Copper with a small lasting head. Aroma of peppery toasted pecans. Taste is the same, with a nice caramel aftertaste. Palate is light-medium, slightly dry, and astringent with a lot of tongue tingle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Moderate aroma of citrus hopps and cereal malts. Average sized frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left a better than fair lacing. Body is normally clear with a medium brown-amber hue. Flavor starts lightly bitter/sweet and ends moderately bitter with a short finish. Palate is light and watery with soft carbonation. Not bad but overall it was below average.

Bottle. Amber coloured with a slight off-white head. This didn’t make much of an impression. A slightly fruity aroma followed by a sweet malt flavour and some hops on the finish. Ok.
