3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: I loved what was at the top of the nose on this one - what seemed to be something like nutmeg & cinnamon. Pours a light copper color with a hazy appearance. the head was mostly diminishing with a spare lacing. Light toffe malts with an average amount of hops yielding a grapefruit taste. Because of the light body, thin texture and lively carbonation, it is pretty refreshing. Better than most other pale ales I have tried.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Deep golden amber. Half-inch head is dense and impressively long-lived. Playful nose of perfume, pineapple, and a touch of grape. Flavor of rye crackers; also woody, scotch-like, and traces of floral sweetness. Earthy, peppery bitterness. With time, the beer becomes sweeter, revealing scents of citron and sauvignon blanc, and some orange zest on the tongue. Fascinating. Palate is full, round, and smooth. Very interesting, compex beer. Delicious in a way that I don’t expect everbody would appreciate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours golden, slight haze, small fizzly white head, lively carbonation, with spotty lacing. Malt, grains, and cereal aroma, with a hint of wet dog. Malty, a touch sour, with some subtle fruity flavor. Medium body and mouthfeel. Finishes quick, semi-sweet, lingering malts. Decent, but not very crisp or hop oriented as I would have liked.
