2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Age has not been kind with major hop fade, very meh tasting. Light handed citric and grassy notes, some pepper but you cant really get a nice malt balance. Just seems to watered down and metallic. The session beer was more forceful. Another crap offering from the Baldwinsville NY A-B plant.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper with ample off white head. Aroma is a blend of light malt and pine/grapefruit/citrus. Taste is a slightly bitter malt/hop. Bitter finish. Pretty decent APA here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 f,l. oz. bottle. The pour is quite attractive with its copper-amber color and smallish cream colored head. But the head lingers, And so does the carbonation. The aroma has a definitive caramel malt character with only the basic hop notes one would expect from the style. Pretty general. Decent enough medium body. The taste leans more to the malty characters and those tend to be robust. Stylewise? It is about what you should expect.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle poured into pint glass.
Appearance: Clear, medium amber colored with a finger or so of creamy tan foam that lasts a bit before reducing to a froth. Plenty of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and a slight sticky lacing.
Aroma: Lightly floral, grassy hops, slightly citrus.
Taste: Hoppy but mildly so as compared to some other APA’s thatch I have had. Piney and grassy.
Mouth Feel: Medium bodied and creamy. A little slick with a lasting finish.
Overall: A really nice beer. I wish it was a year round offering.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bière achetée à New York dans un Deli non loin de Times Square... La bière est cuivrée, couverte d’une belle mousse. Nez de sucre et de pamplemousse rose puissant. Quand même invitant! En bouche, l’attaque de houblons herbeux est frappante. Je dirais qu’il y a un léger manque de finesse.

These geese are honking "Drink Blatz! Drink Blatz!" A warning I should have heeded. If I was sitting down to dinner and the waitress only could offer me a glass of warm battery acid and one of these.....I would definitely....DEFINITELY.....DEFINITELY....leave immediately and hoist a Blatz.
But that’s just cuz I have panache and elan.
