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 isnít well rounded, and really just doesnít work all that well in my opinion. Maybe I got a bad bottle, I donít 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2012 The Great Divide Denver Pale Ale is branded as English-style, but that doesnít do it justice, being as robust as it is. The colour is dark amber. The malts in the middle are well balanced against the hops, creating a complex beer full of flavour, aroma and bitterness, but remaining fresh to drink a couple more.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint pine resin and grain on the nose. Pours clear copper. Flavor components are the same but more assertive. Pretty decent beer overall, but didnít blow me away.
