3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of Porcelainbomb (reddit trader). Pours a hazy golden color with sporadic head that fades quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is lemon zest, big sweet malts and bread, and finally some sharp grass. Flavor is an even mix of sweet malt and lemon bitterness followed by a big dose of bitter hops that diminishes into a clean aftertaste. Palate is quite heavy for this style as the beer actually sits and weighs on the tongue and with the minimal carbonation this feeling increases. Overall, this is a strange pale almost like a Pilsner/Pale hybrid based on the flavors that come through with the strong Pils bready malts mixing so much; also the bitterness is almost off-putting as it doesnít do well with the sweetness and almost turns an off sour. I would like to try one fresh to compare but itís barely above average for me.

Big Bottle. Pours a golden color with one finger head. Aroma of crisp citrus and mild lemons, and light fruits Taste is light fruits with slight lemon peel citrus and grapefruit. Average carbonation. Quite refreshing. Not overly hoppy like some pale ales, but finished with a smooth bitter finish. Enjoyed.

Purchased as a taster at the breweries pub. Light amber color with minimal head. Fairly sweet aroma, but slightly lacking in taste. I think I should have tried this before the Adam and Matt.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours golden orange with a bit of haze and a white head. The aroma has toast, creamy malt and some earthy hops. It has a medium smooth body with a bit of a bit and fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with earthiness, toasty dry bread and orange zest. The finish adds earthiness and pine. Really nice APA.
