3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden amber poer from tap with good dense white head. Malty aroma with some citrus hop detectable. Smooth palate and good taste with lots of malt well balanced with citrus hops. Citrus in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is fruity, sweet and malty. Appearance is a hazy orange with a small tan head. Taste of orange peel and other citrus goodness up front. Nice carbonation, not too fizzy. A little watery and boring after a bit with a rough finish, but still a nice epa.

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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big rocky head fades down to nothing atop an amber colored brew. Smells mildly malty and slightly of cardboard. Sweet malty flavor pretty much runs throughout this brew. Tastes a little old. Even if it wasnít old, this tastes like a good beer that was watered down.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Subdued ale yeast fruitiness. Slightly hazy golden bronze with thin faintly yellow head. Little retention, minimal lacing. Mild carbonation. Flavor follows aroma with a little caramel malt backbone. Light-to-medium body with pleasant foamy mouthfeel. Slightly sweet finish, but doesnít cling. Pretty good bitters. Another good "starter beer" to convert your friends.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iím not a huge fan of APAs, but this one is OK in my book. It doesnít have the overwhelming, brutal, hoppy bitterness characteristic of the type, but it isnít timid either. Well balanced and suitable for long evenings chatting with friends.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance- This beer poured a nice copper color with a huge white head. Lacing was present throughout.
Smell- Wonderful malt aroma with nice hints of hops and sweet caramel.
Taste- Nice toasted malty flavors with a caramel sweetness similar to the nose. There is also a nice hoppiness which provides a nice citrus taste to it.
Mouthfeel- A medium body with a medium carbonation.
Overall- This beer is great!! It could function as a prefect session beer with the great taste and the fairly low ABV. I could drink a lot of these!! Only problem. We canít get this down here in Louisiana. Guess itís time to start bugging the local distributor!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Heavy malt, caramel, and milk shocolate, moderate hoppiness of flowers and pine, oak, toffee, honey, syrup, and alcohol. Head was small, off white mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Medium hue, amber in color. Light sweet and acidic with moderate bitterness. Very tasty and drinkable the more you drink the better it taste with the hops fading to the back ground and the malt really shining through. Overall a very excellent Pale Ale.
