2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle. Used a pint glass. Light hazy orange color. Small white head with no lace. Nose of very light hops and bread like malt. Taste is much the same and just as weak. Thin mouhfeel, watery. Below average, but not terrible.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Darker and more hazy than pale lager. Smell is a little sweet &alarming like those quite rude high alky baltic lagers. First taste is malty and above medium personality impact. Barely any CO2. Dull like many higher hopped APA. Not real impressed but this style rarely impresses me. Dull lingering finish.

Tap at the brewery. Comes to life in the mouth. Aroma has caramel; taste is sweet, with bitterness taking over. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Orange, with a frothy head.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: snifter. Nice copper color, with a good white head on top that retains about an 1/8th of an inch. Practically no lacing.
S: nice malty aroma. Solid crystal malts, with some fruity aromas. Not a big hop aroma for a pale ale.
T: has that Northeastern beer taste. Good solid malt backbone, with a great balance of bitter hop flavors. Almost reminds me of a marzen. I am getting some hints of banana. Taste kind of like some Shipyard products.
M: good carbonation level. Medium body. A rather interesting palate.
D: definitely a session beer in my opinion. Decent for the style but nothing crazy with this one.

Bottle. Poured a burnt orange that slowly became lighter copper, and had a very good white head. Aromas of mild floral hops. Taste is crisp and dry malts with floral notes and a very slight hint of malt to keep the bitterness low. A simple brew that does it very well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Mild fruity aroma. Hazy light amber colour. The flavour is slightly grainy with a mild, refreshing grassy hop note.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
a brew with a chalky lye like flavor that of course presents itself toard the back of the palate. watery, sweetish and low in carbonation with some fruit that does not balance this brew out but, helps a little bit with the flavor. that to me is not enough.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2007: Hazy light orange. Almost no head. Has a nice thick "real ale" look to it. Looks very English.
Very nice normal, typical ale smell. The malt dominated with a hint of gentle flowery hops. Very subtle, but very pleasant. A bit toasted.
Terrific dry ale with a dry biscuty malt. Very light wheat aftertaste with an estery finish. Really really good. Unique hint of wheat. Even the yeast is excellent.
Dry and biscuity, medium thickness. It’s a fine session ale. Feels great. This is really an outstanding English style pub ale. Easy to drink but full of flavor. I am surprised a lot of other Advocates are dogging this one, because I was really impressed with it, even out of a bottle.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a much much too light amber. The nose is bland with a lot of malts. So is the flavor. It is the worst beer in the world, but neither is it very impressive. I’ bored.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Honey and caramel on the nose with spicy hops, bread-like nose. Pours clear pale with no head. English style pale more than American, malt driven with spicy earthy hops. Thin bodied, not much going on.
