Pours golden light with small head. Not my favorite style. Tastes stale and bready. Not good to me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Aroma: Nice mixture of clementine citrus with a little herbal spiciness; malts are reminiscent of toasted white bread. Appearance: Filtered bright yellow gold with a foamy white head that settles into a sticky, bubbly white skin. Flavor: More citrus than spice up front with the semi-sweet malts; malts drop out and Simcoe steals the show with a light lemongrass push toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: This is a well conceived and executed beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral, peachy and slightly grapefruity hop with a touch of pale malt. Fairly bitter character, light pale and biscuity malt character. Lingering hop finish with a moreish touch of crackery malt. Pretty nice.

Not a bad pale. Just an average beer all around but still very drinkable and pleasurable.

A clean and crisp pale that is easy drinking. Little something extra in the hop profile--little spicy even. Nice. 12oz bottle pour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
on draft poured a copperish red color with a white head. a typical APA, nice nose of malts and hops. the flavor pretty much right down the middle of the road. good malt backbone...maybe some caramel in there and pretty standard amount of hops. nothing over the top and quite drinkable. medium bitterness on the end almost finishes dry.
