3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Breukelen Bier Merchants day of tapping. A very light and refreshing pale with characteristic green flash quality and hops. Super bright clear with a respectable white head. Aroma of grass, cereal, lightly fruity and floral with a little spice. Flavor is clean cooling citrus and earthy hops giving way to light sweet bread with a light bitter finish. Perfect balanced ending clean and dry on the palate. (had this a few a week later in a growler left unopened over night and it wasn’t nearly so bright and fresh, shame on me).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Petrol Station.
The beer pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of biscuit malt and not too much else. The flavor is more exciting. I get some biscuit malt up front, but there is also a little bit of hop character. I get some orange citrus hops, as well as some grass and a low amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This tasted just like a standard pale ale to me without much to it. Slight hoppy aroma and a few hops I could get in the taste, but fairly unremarkable overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to growler, from the Birch. Golden and shiny with a nice boiling head of white foam. Creamy appeal, with an everyman’s appeal -- lightly caressed with a bit of flowery finish, but an easy drinker for anybody. (#4696, 7/16/2012)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on draft at Beer Run. I’m not sure what makes this retro, or a different beer from the Extra Pale at all, so I fully expect this rating to be merged at some point. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized head. Poor head retention. Aroma of herbal, peppery and earthy malts. The taste is sweet malts, earth, peppery and herbal hops. Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness. Nice.
