3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light gold with a huge foaming white pillowy head. Aroma is bready malts and some floral hops. Also some stale woody earthy notes. Taste is a bit stale, probably my fault for having something a bit dated. Floral notes and bready malts.

4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very tasty. The maltyness stands out but there is plenty of hops for the pale ale palette. This won’t knock your socks off but a good all around, every day beer.

Bottle from Ty. Nose is dry as well as taste. Some malt feel to balance hop bitterness. Not much sweetness. Good with spicy food.

From bottle. Pours a sort of unremarkable copper color with some thin white head and significant lacing. Nose is somewhat floral and slightly skunky. Smooth, nice balance of hops and malt. Slightly astringent finish. Easy to drink. Good representation of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottled 3 weeks ago from Mile High Wine & Spirits into a pint glass. Nice looking amber and clear appearance with a lasting white head and light lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, English hops, floral notes, toffee, bread and caramel. Fairly malty flavor, similar to the aroma, with moderate earthy bitterness. Medium body, pretty crisp with a smooth, clean finish. Better than I remember, probably just fresher.

Clear copper amber with an off-white head and nice lace. Hop-forward aroma with generous citrus and pine atop a solid caramel malt foundation. Hop bitterness is prominent, but nicely balanced by the malt sweetness. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a crisply bitter finish.
