3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) Very clear pale amber complexion. Weak aroma of hop and sweet malt. The flavor is citrusy with pine and a balance of malt. Dry lingering finish. Smooth palate. Easy to have a second.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma of citrus, hops and a smidge of pine. Taste is citrus, hops, pine, malt. Just enough bitterness to make it pull together. Good brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I love Cascade hops. Nice and crisp for a pale ale. Burnt orange in color, thin frothed white head. An unexpected refreshing quality. Very dry finish.

From a bottle.
Good tasting beer. The finish is a bit unique and not ideal for me. Tough to describe. Quality beer. No problems identified but the finish isn't my preference. Light lacing. Great color and clarity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Citrus, pine, and a little metallic funk in the aroma. Mildly sweet flavor with some flowery hop bitterness in the finish. Pretty standard, but pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, clean, but otherwise fairly uninteresting. It has an attractive copper pour with a white head that slowly fades into a very nice ring of lacing. The aroma is of very light hops which coincides with the taste. There are citrus hops throughout the beer but they are somewhat mellowed as the beer is quite sessionable. It’s refreshing yet leaves a little bit of bitterness on tongue. Solid effort!

Beautiful amber color. Smooth drinking with the solid malt back I expect from Great Lakes.
