3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Pours an amber colour with an off white head which dissipates quickly. Pleasant recognisably American aroma. Fruity hops, slightly herbal and a sherbet like sweetness. Medium sweet taste with light bitterness. Very easily drinkable and pleasantly satisfying ale. Quite good.

Pleasant but forgettable bitter style ale. I prefer my bitters to taste a bit less like every other ale this brewery puts out, and have a load more flavor. That being said, this is a great beer to introduce relatives or friends to real craft beer with. Mild and safe enough to please the masses, but ultimately, drinkable.

Not quite as hoppy as I would have liked, but still not bad. Amber coloring, with a funny off-white head. Malty aroma, with some citrus mixed in. Flavor is fairly mellow, with a pretty substantial mouthfeel. Run of the mill, but not in a bad way.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
OK, well, not bad. Poured a little more red than I thought it would - kind of a clear red-gold, with a foamy 2 finger domed head. The nose is faintly urine and a little honey, like my impression of a lot of goose island beers. Itís not totally offensive, just a little off. Starts honey, a midriff of pine-resin, and finishes with some lightly bitter hops. Not offensive, a little intriguing. But pine resin? I should probably try it again just to be sure.

Pours an amber / orange with a slight off white head. Aroma is nice floral hops with some fruitiness and some sweet malt. Mouth feel is medium, malts are sweet and hops are slightly bitter. I did not get the Pale ale experience on this one but all and all a good drinking beer.

Bottle to sampler cup. Poured a darker yellow with medium head. This supposedly had more IBUs than the "mild winter" but I couldnít tell. Seemed more mellow to me. It was alright, but another "meh"

12 oz bottle.
Wow, this was a pleasant surprise.
Copper hue, lacey medium head. Citrus hops with malty notes make it bitter but quite bearable.

Pours a clear copper body with a nearly non-existent head. Pleasant sweet biscuit with a slightly dry finish. Like stated below, very simple and easy drinking.
