3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tasted on 12/12/13 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours clear burnt orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to average, bubbly lace. The nose has a nicely balanced aroma of light caramel malt, bread, and plenty of floral and grassy hops. The flavor is more focused on the citrus and grassy hops bitterness with the same malt character from the nose providing balance. The body is light with lively carbonation, and a medium balanced finish.

On tap at Barcade, pours murky reddish brown with small white head, alright lacing. Aromas and flavor are a malt mess, lots of caramel, sweet malt, grape juice, and bread biscuits. Medium to fuller body, with a good bit of carbonation. I never enjoy these malt forward American pales.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
The nose is caramel balanced with grass and citrus. Nice. Pours a clear dark amber with an off-white ring and minor lacing. The flavor, initially, is slightly sweet followed by a grassy/citrus finish. Balanced. A somewhat bitter aftertaste is also present. Medium-light body and moderate but crisp carbonation. Overall, I can see why this could be a session beer, but one will do it for me for now.

Pours a copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is malt forward with a touch of sweetness and some grassy stale hops and a trace of citrus. The palate follows but is a bit more refreshing than the nose. Nice balance between round toasted amber malts and grapefruit bitterness. Pretty refreshing and easy to drink.

pours hazy amber with a generous off white head that lingers--caramel malty aroma with a snap of
resinous hop notes--light and creamy malt up front
with a bitter slightly off finish--it’s OK/ not special
