3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours an amber color with a fluffy off-white head. The aroma shows a mix of caramel, toasted grain, and citrusy hops. The flavor doesn’t really offer any surprises; slick sweet malty body with caramel and dough, a bit toasty, a note of vanilla, with bitter citrus hops to balance it nicely. This is just one of those no thrills but overall pretty solid Pale Ales to kick back with.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is alright. Smells hoppy, amber colour. Bitter but watery, light on palate and flavour. Session indeed, but that’s just an excuse anyway. Bottle from thirsty and miserable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a slight-to-moderate white head. Nice little bit of hoppiness in the aroma which makes it inviting. The taste is not as bitter as the aroma would suggest, with the malts overtaking the hops here. An interesting brew...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty sweet and spicey amber beer.the thin white head lasts the drink. The dry hopping is evident. A badass session ale. Medium body, strength, and balanced hoppy finish.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a murky copper amber with one finger of sandy tan head. Muddled nose, oxidized/aged hops with a papery malt character. Also.....5.6% session beer????? Terribly oxidized and unclean. A mess of a beer. Gross

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy copper/amber color with fair white head. Aroma is different and difficult to pin down. Sweet caramel and honey with earthy hops clashes a bit for my nose. Mild fruit. Taste is mostly bitter with some sweetness near the end. Finish is again mostly bitter. Hops really stand out in this one but it just doesnt balance or finish quite as well as I would hope. Not a bad beer, but not one I would run to again.
