Dark ruby with creamy head. Huge flowery citrusy hop aroma. Rather dry, nicely malty, bitterish finish, but it actually feels surprisingly mild. Extremely hop aromatic and very drinkable. Thanks PsychProf for sending me this!

Bottle at Hop Leaf, Chicago
Light amber color. The aroma is a bit eggy, but it has a nice malt and caramel flavor, crispy, with a good hopping. Very good.

Tap at Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown. Golden color, thick amber head. Aroma of grass and subtle licorice. Taste is straightforward and lager-like. Uninteresting.

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 - Thanks to Sune. Clear golden - white head. Sulfor, roasted, let knækbrød, hoppy aroma, light malty, citric, diacetyl, light metallic. Did it get light.... or what ??

Bright reddish-amber; big cascade nose; light pale maltiness, well-balanced citrus - wood, pale and amber malts. Very nicely balanced. Dry, pithy, citrusy finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a clear amber color with a finger of white head on top.
S: Slightly sweet aroma with a little bit of toast and bread character. There isn’t too much of a hop profile to it, but there is a bit of citrus peel and grass. A light caramel aroma which gives it a slight creaminess.
T: A similar story on the palate. Sweet bread, toffee, and pale, cracker malts. A light floral and grassy hop flavor along with a soft hop bitterness. Creamy caramel notes on the finish with just a touch of orange peel.
M: On the light side of medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: While this is a drinkable beer, it isn’t up there with the better pale ales that I’ve had.

Thanksgiving day lunchtime warm up, can split at Christine and Daves thanks to DLJ, 28/11/13.
Clear golden with a good sized off white head that retains well.
Nose is toasted malt, orange, citric dipped straw, bread dough, trace of caramel.
Taste comprises toasted malt, soft bread dough, orange pith, lemon sherbet, straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy bitterness in the finish with a subtle hop presence.
So so APA - lacks any great depth of flavour but easy drinking.
