3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Copper color with good white head and nice lacing on glass. Very nice aroma of malt, hops and biscuit. Flavor of biscuit, malt and a good bit of hop bitterness. Good mouthfeel. I thought this was an excellent beer. Loved the hoppiness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2005 Aroma is light but balanced, with a general maltiness (nothing specific jumps out) and a slight pine needle hint to the hops. The appearance is very nice, a rich red-amber with a light white head. The flavor is just like the aroma, balanced but bland, with that pine-needley taste coming through again. The palate is fine, medium feel, medium carbonation. The problem is the same finish Goose Islandís IPA has - a nasty, bitter aftertaste that lasts for ages. Iím pretty sure itís their hops - this beer is just not as good as other regional craft brews.

Not too bad for an ale. A little hoppy but not near as intense as others. I wouldnít turn one down but if itís more than a couple I would probably take a pass...

Easy to drink, not exactly a risky beer. Not as hoppy as a true pale, but still has some bite. Living in the Chi I will obviously drink more, but I wont be going out of my way for it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty standard pale ale. Some bottles are clearly better than others and when fresh on draft, this beer is great. Citrusy and crisp. Could use a little more hops and malt. Hit or miss - sometimes tastes liek iced tea.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium bodied english ale, orangy caramel in color. Not my favorite style, for no particular reason. Just seems kind of boring. Highly drinkable but just average all around.
