3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the downtown brewpub. An orange-copper brew with a nice Brittanic head. Pleasant and rusty on the tongue. Malty with a mellow earthy bite, sticking with the British style. (#5132, 7/4/2013)

Had it tap at the Great Dane downtown location in Madison. Poured a clear amber / orange hue, with nice head and lacing. Firm tasting pale ale with a slight bitter after taste.

Pours an enticing orange color, with a thick white foam. The piney, refreshing aroma meets you at first with a nice undertone of malt. Tastes follows suit with a good hop presence up front, and solid malty background. Tastes like pine, citrus zest. A good solid offering especially from a brewpub.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the Great Dane in Wausau. Pours a deep amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is light, hoppy, orange, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, some pine hops, with a light, bitter finish. A nice, serviceable pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour golden with a decent bit of head that doesn’t stick around for too long. Aroma is intensely hoppy with lots of citrus and floral notes. There is also a bit of malty sweetness and caramel present. Taste doesn’t disappoint but the finish is a bit weak. Overall a very session able beer and a standard for a night at the Great Dane

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap in a big plastic cup at the Mallards game - Clear amber pour with a thin tan head. Nose is herbal light grassy hops, with sweey caramel malt. Not as clean as I’d like. Taste is pretty malty, sweet and light citrus. Not overly bitter, but kind of a muddled, bready maltiness. Smooth and well carbonated. Meh.
