2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Served correctly at just below room temp. Low fizz - appropriate. Subtle style, seems like a low malt feel. Nice soft, broad mouthfeel; very friendly but does lack some kick. Perhaps I need to drink more of these styles to better appreciate?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at John Harvards in DC. This was a cask conditioned version of their Pale Ale. Poured a medium copper color with a small head. Cellar temperature. Orangey smelling and tasting. Lightly sweet. I enjoyed this version of their Pale Ale better.

Very very very smooth. No after taste. A very non traditional ale.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is perhaps the hardest beer Iíve ever had to rate. It looked like beer. It kind of smelled like beer. But it didnít have any taste. And aftertaste ... it was devoid of that as well. It was lack a failed homebrew. Served @ 55 degrees (intentionally) to preserve the little bit of taste it had. It reminded me of a very weak 3 day old cup of tea.
