3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Ashley’s, Ann Arbor. A clear dark golden beer with a small off-white head. It’s got a light bread touch in the aroma, with fruityness and some pine cones, a tad boring actually. It’s full bodied, smooth and semi-dry, with a nice carbonation level. Caramel, a nice bitterness, some pine cones and a generic fruityness in the flavor. Some metallic notes on the very end. Decent indeed, but I find it a bit malty. 150615

Bottle. Copper in color with medium white, foamy head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is fruity with some citrus, rounded out with some malty sweetness. Just enough bitterness for a crisp finish. This is a really enjoyable pale ale.
