3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from DarkLord Brother Kevin Yeehaaaaw!
Pours a slightly anemic amber; just a tad too clear to be beautiful. Aroma is a mixture of citrus and roasted malt. Nice head on the beer. Flavor is sour malt with a hint of tangerine and grapefruit. Nice hops finish. Smooth palate. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enough creamy and compact head, medium resistance. Orange/brazen color, rather limpid and much bubbly. Fruit flavored scent with notes of humid wood and roast malt. Fresh and prickly taste; harmonious with a light note of cereals and grape on the end. Determined and agreeable bitter. Balanced and rather persistent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled sample. Light amber in colour with lots of carbonation. Mild citrus aromas with a bit of caramel. Light malt flavors dominate, with some notes of spicy Gernan hops and some yeast bite. Very restrained in the hops department for an American pale ale. Light bodied. A little un-refined by this brewery standards, but still an ok beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful draft beer served in a pilsner glass. Minimal head. Sweet spicy floral aroma. Sweet malty taste with less hops influence than expected. Very smooth. I thought it was very good, but I lean more toward sweeter pale ales than most.

Rather clear deep amber with a medium to small head. Delicious caramel and citrus hop aroma in nice harmony. Sweet caramel, some spiciness as in rye-bread , good balancing bitterness, leaving ta dry finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. An above-average, well-balanced pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Honey hazy color, thin head. Citrusy, floral aroma. Spicy bitterness balanced out with the malt. Leaf grassy finish and watery. Its a good taste that should have been amplified. Pretty good beer, but its not in the big leagues.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It had a cloudy orange color with a nice frothy head. It seemed fairly carbonated with nice lacing and a very balanced flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Slightly hazy amber pour with a medium sized beige, soapy head. Initial hoppy aromas are grassy with some clover and orange, but are well balanced by the subtle caramelized malts. The flavors are equally well-balanced on the tongue, which makes this highly drinkable but gives nothing a chance to shine. Texture is a bit sharp and biting with the carbonation, but it settles down and finishes with a clean, bitter ending.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy rich amber with a nice off-white head that would leave a fair amount of lacing. The aroma was a nicely balanced malt and hops sensation, if a bit underpowered. A good easy flavor just barely sweet upfront with a light bitter finish that lingers gently. It is smooth with a barely perceptible tingle in the mouth. Overall it is a nice balanced beer, easy to drink, a great session beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a hazy amber color with a very thin white head. Faint hoppy aroma, but almost non-existant. Flavor is fairly pleasant, hoppy and a little spicy. Kind of a light body, but good carbonation. Overall, itís OK, but nothing special.
