2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
light off yellow color w/ a soapy head and some lacing. Lightly sweet aroma with hints of grass and grapefruit, touches of grahm cracker. Fairly thin but coats well. Flavor is pretty bland, very grassy but in a weak way some definate grahm and cardboard to fill out the body and a hint of carmel. Not to good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is a clear amber, head is small and white. Aroma is sweet and soft and fruity, full of peaches and melons, among more.
Texture is airy and light. Hops are actually quite quiet and make little presence upon the palate. Balance is bright and fine, nicely rounded, malt is sweet, but, sorry, when you put it all together, it's rather run of the mill. Swwet, but short finish.
Tasty and nice and pleasant, but lacking the hoppiness that would have made it thoroughly appealing. The fruitiness is bright and sunny, but this pale ale is really lacking in body and texture.
I do like it okay, but see no reason to pick it up again, when Summit EPA is everywhere you look around here.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours orange with a slight haze from a massive amount of tiny bubbles surfacing. A good half inch of head lasts and leaves a cloud of lacing. Nose is bright and hoppy with some apricot notes as well. A bit thin on the palate with some slight harshness from overzealous carbonation. Flavor is dominated by hops more so than the aroma. Finishes bitter with a slight metallic note.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in trade from hopdog. Thanks!
Pours reddish clear with a short lived light beige head. Smell is balanced malty with a light dull, hop presence. Taste is slightly fruity in a bland citrusy way with light sweetness and dry bitterness. Not spectacularly flavored, but some light caramelly, toasty malt to go along with the nice bittering hops. Pleasant and very drinkable, but unremarkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from bottle: pours a big bright orange colour with a medium sized white head. Aroma is particularly hoppy, floral fruity. Spicey hops and generous citrusy notes throughout. Floral as well. Finishes slighlty off dry but for the most part pretty refreshing.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2003 A very nice golden color a little high on the carbonation but didn't seem to hurt the beer in any way strong hopp nose and finish was hoppy and refreshing
