Hazy Honey Coloring. Small Skin of White Head. Good Flavors Here and Definitly a Great Offering from Mr.Page. Lemony, Yeast...Not Very Balanced Overall.. But a Nice Flavor..Perhaps Just Not the Best Ending... Decent Brew Overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On-Tap: Color is a hazy deep yellow, perhaps much like a hazy sunset over a lake, but not really, no head was served with it but there was a tiny white ring and some tiny spotty lace. Smell is a nice sweet and lightly zesty surge to it. Lemony light, yeasty, and a hard dry bread dough-like backing. Seems like easy paddling ahead. Taste is lemon citrusy and some light yeasty hold in the middle with a slight hop twinge and finishes a bit dry, a bit thin, but relaxed and firm with maybe to much malts making it uneven. The oars aren't doing there job right on this trip. Feel is lighter to medium bodied, light yeasty grain feel in the middle and throughout the swallow, leading to a light dryness. Maybe lost direction on where to go after making the turn at smell point. From the smell I thought for sure this would be at least a good voyage, but it comes up short of portaging to the next lake.

Not a bad version of an English Pale, not over hopped like the typical west coast versions.

A kind-of nasty after-taste, but not too bad. James Page brews some good beer. This one is a keeper.

a step or two above Budweiser. I have a bias against any beer that comes in an aluminum can. This beer is a bit darker and carbonated. It presents with coarse carbonation, no head and a malt tone. No finish to speak of. An average ale.

a great full flavored non-overpowering beer one to try if you can
