3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: 3/4” white head with leaves decent lacing on the glass. Color is gold and mostly clear. Significant carbonation bubbles streaming up.
Aroma: Strong aroma of citrus & floral hops dominate the smell with some mild yeast and malt aroma in the background.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and watery with a refreshing finish.
Flavor: Differs widely from the aroma – although the hops are evident they are well balanced by a malt that presents cracker and yeast roll flavors.
Overall: This a very pleasant session ale that will pair well with many meals, but can also be enjoyed as a stand alone.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear and yellow with a finger of white head. Aroma is piney citrus with a presence of yeast esters. Flavor is crisp and sweeter than expected. The hops seem to simply cut the malt flavor just the slightest bit so that it doesn’t sit on the palate too long. Highly drinkable.

Pours a clear golden/amber with a smallish head. Pine and citrus aroma. A little watery, but a nice flavor, a bit sweet with some bitterness and smooth finish. Not a bad APA.

Golden color with a white head. Nice balance between malty sweetness and some hop bitterness. Nothing really stands out as unique but still a decent pale ale.
