0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This is an indictment on service moreso than style. I’ve been there three times, and not only has the Pale Ale been out every time, but the bartender was rude and condescending about it. I mean, this is a brewery right? Do they, at some point, brew some beer? And why so customer averse? Is there a secret password to this secret society that I don’t know? Not worth the trouble.

Amber colour as are a lot of Great Leap beers. Kind of reminded me a bit of peaches. Very tasty.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark yellow colored with hazy appearance, little yellow head. Fruity aroma with yeast, even some banana note here, crispy hops with grass here as well. Medium bodied, smooth palated. Flavor is also fruity with some grainy touch, yeasty aftertaste with strong, slightly biting hops. Smooth one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ brewpub. Murky orange with scant lace. Resinous aroma, yeasty in a goody way, dding depth and body. Remains resinous and astringent in character with some passionfruit, unsweetened, throughout. Touch of dough. Not their best beer but not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy dark tan. Lightly fruity aroma. The palate starts with overripe fruits, giving way to cleaner pear/peach notes. Soft body and a gentle balance, certainly a lighter take on the style than you’d find back home. Probably more English in its sense of balance, but with American alcohol and Chinese hops.
