3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 5.9% ABV. Pours a murky amber with a rocky khaki cap that leaves some foamy, clingy lace. Lots going on aromatically: some pine, earthiness, herbal tea, caramel, stone fruit, a touch of plum, some grain. Pretty sweet, with a fair bitter balance. Medium bodied, fair action, with a long bitter finish. Tasty brew, pretty well balanced, and just good all around.

Not as good as Iíd hoped. A little plain, and I could see someone using this as their go-to-pale, but just didnít impress me.

not bad but almost too malty for my idea of a pale ale---up front malt is nice and hops are present---
definitely a tasty bitter finish---just not what I expected but Iíll drink again

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Far too volatile on the pour, one inch of beer and five inches of head. Lasts forever, though, and leaves good lacing. Deep amber, cloudy copper body, darker than expected. Aroma of heavy hops; pine, zesty, floral, and lightly soapy. Faint juicy oranges and bready malt backbone. Taste is quite spicy, lots of white pepper, earthy, dirty, herbal hoppage. Brash bitterness and a heavy toasted and caramel malt sweetness that helps balance. Bitter finish, thicker than expected body with lively carbonation. Not as "drinkable" as Iíd like a pale ale to be.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Didnít know what to expect since the bottle says ale. Pours murky brown with a foamy off white head. Smells like candied sugar a very floral. Taste is sweet, caramel, in thd beginning but then hops that taste like you ate a dandelion. Good mouth feel though. Big malt bill. Overall not to good.

Bottle. Pours a copperish color with medium head and lacing. Aroma of lemon and citrus and the hops linger after 1st drink (could be a turn off for some, but I like). Good beer

Tastes a little too pils-ish for me, and seriously lacking in hops. Not terrible, but wouldnít buy it again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
There are about 7 versions of this beer on here. The bottle doesnt specify. So im going with the one with the most ratings. It also doesnt say what kind of beer it was. Just ale. Well that does me no good. Very floral, bitter. Didnt get much hops. I guessed ESB. Well we have it as american pale. Well by that standard it doesnt impress.
