3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2007 Brass brew with a light head and a fresh aroma of hops and malt. This is a dry, not fruity, pale ale. Medium body, interesting hops, and a mild aftertaste. It is probably a good session beer, but does not give rise to shouts of pleasure or surprise. Solid stuff, but I was hoping for more from the brewers that came up with the magnificent Loose Cannon.

Nice marriage of hops and malts in this pale. It is actually a bit creamy tasting. The hops are not overpowering, and the carbonation is not overdone. Golden color with a lasting pale head.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a sampler 6 pack, best by Jun 2007. Unclouded orange-amber with a small, but fairly lasting head. Nice citrus-pine aroma with some malt backing. Flavor is slightly malt on front, then more bitterness slowly creeping up. Nice slight astringent fruit aftertaste. Palate is light-medium, smooth and thirst-quenching. Well-balanced and nice session beer.

Mild dry nutty after with not much else going on.
