3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pottle. Pours a copper-orange color with an extremely thick white head. Has some sweet and floral notes to the nose. Light on the palate and, like they said, fairly crisp finish. Nice and easy drink.

Decent pale ale. sweetness here goes well with the floral aroma, but want more bite. Easiy drinkable, but like my APAs to be a bit more refreshing.

Weak sauce. Almost no smell. Thin. Way too light on hops, such that the first taste was like a wheat ale. The taste is clean, and I could see someone who doesn’t like strong tasting beers enjoying this.

Orange golden body and very nice off white head. White bread base, clean yeast and modest but modern lemony hop profile. Solid butter base, really nice and summery. Good stuff. (On my Florida trip)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice copper hue, small head that dissapears quickly, mild lacing. Tastes mainly malty with a nice hop bite - hops are mainly herbal, malt is mainly cereal and slight caramel and bread notes. Body is medium, texture is creamy with average carbonation finish is bitter but not overpowering. Nice representation of the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head, which dissipated down to a thick film and a large collar with very good runny lacing.
The aroma was of a sweet light bread malt, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of apple, toffee, caramel and citrus (grapefruit and orange).
The taste was somewhat malty and a tad bitter sweet with notes of caramel, toffee and a mild fruity ester in the beginning with a light hoppy citrus bitterness towards the end. The flavor hung around for an average duration, while the slightly bitter sweet taste settled on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body and dry in texture with an almost medium carbonation.
Overall a pretty basic Pale Ale with a slight fruity twist...

Bottle from WWoW in Lambertville. Apple, grapefruit, lemon and malt. Lightly roasted. Some sweetness. Not hoppy, but should it be? Flavor doesn’t overpower either.

Orange to copper pour with disappearing head. Aroma is floral. Flavor is moderately bitter with hops, slight citrus. Finish is very dry and hoppy, bitter lingering. This is almost an ESB.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/28/12, Bottled on 5/9/12
Aroma: The nose has some fruity notes, a good amount of malt, a bit of earth, and some grainy notes
Appearance: It pours a caramel color with a huge foam of beige head and some foamy head
Flavor: The taste has a good amount of malt, and some dry hoppy fruit flavors as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has an overly fizzy carbonation, and a rather dry finish
The heavy fizziness of this one really takes away a lot from the drinkability. There is plenty going on, but it isn’t well rounded, and really just doesn’t work all that well in my opinion. Maybe I got a bad bottle, I don’t know. Mostly though, it is really still that intense fizziness that hurts the enjoyment immensely for me. This one has one of the worst mouthfeels I can remember on an otherwise decent beer.
