3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to The Peter! Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Crystal malts abound in the nose along with some pine. Light dryness here, some toasty bread, mellow pine bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Decent resinous pine on the finish with toasty bread and light grass. Decent overall.

Nice looking, clear and reddish-tan with a pretty good head and some flecks of lace.
Aroma is nice too, good and hoppy, a little fruity, pine and resin.
Tastes nice, hops are plentiful, with resinous hop oils noted, some citrus and pine, plus an amply malty base with a sweet note to make this a full but quite drinkable pale ale.
Body is medium, carbonation is medium, overall it’s a pretty strong tasting, strong finishing pale ale, giving the illusion of being a bigger beer than it really is.
I like it. I took a chance on a six pack and I will certainly enjoy the other five. Would buy again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber brew with the smell of piney hops and the taste of sweet malts along with decent share of hops. Overall a typical american pale ale but while others may tell me it is all in my mind I can taste that slight aluminum twang. Can’t say it is bad of a brewer to go aluminum since recycling glass is practically impossible in Texas but would rather have my beer in a bottle.

Can thanks to my Secret Santa Michael. Pours a clear deep orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassy hops with backing earthy grain and hay. Flavor starts with grassy hops that last throughout with backing notes of earthy grains and just a hint of bitter pine.
