3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Appearance-copper with medium off white head with medium duration. Aroma- bready and carmamel malt with some hops in the background. Taste- A little more hop character than an English pale ale but the balance is more toward the malt. A fair amount of bitterness at the finish. An easy drinking yet flavorful pale ale.

Orangish, Amber with some red highlights around the edges. Clear. Had a slight off white head with small tight bubbles. Decent head retention. Really hanging around. The smell was of caramel, bread, biscuit with some underlying hints of butter. Nice balance on all aromas. The taste was a bready, biscuit flavor. Slight bit of bitterness at the end and again picking up the buttery flavors. Bitterness kind of fades as the beer warms. The mouthfeel was thin, light, crisp and dry. I do like this beer. I think it would be very drinkable during the fall season. Great all around, solid beer.

This is better than I was expecting. I heard it compared to Anchor Liberty Ale, but this is not as bitterly hoppy. good malt balance.

A very good pale ale, one of the best out there. Itís that sweet lake michigan water that made milwaukee famous, except itís chicago.

Good malt and hops cobination leaves this sweet, spicy and toasted. Well balanced for an American pale, in which the style tends to be over-hopped. Light citrus and yeast taste. Not exceptional, but a good brew.

Amber color with long lasting medium white head. Spicy on the nose, canít place the spice at this time. Nice blend of hops and malt flavors.

On tap at Curraghs: Amber in color, minimal head. Had nice flavor but was lacking hops. Definetly better ales out there, but overall it was an okay beer

There was just nothing to this beer. The smell was very light, almost nonexistent. The flavor was very bland and lasted only a short second. Absolutely no aftertaste. I was extremely disapointed by this brew.
