2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light amber color with whitish foamy head that quickly dissipates, yeast aroma, fizzy. slightly bitter taste with longish finish. Not very remarkable but good value for money, considering that it’s a Costco beer!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Deep amber in color with a quickly fading white head. Spicey aroma, sweet doughy flavor with a little spice. Fair pale ale, but far from good.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Deep gold verging on amber. Soapy looking head. Mild aroma, caramel and bread. Sweet flavour, some more caramel cereal and a faint hoppiness at the end. Quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold, loose white head. Smells clean, grassy, with a bit of caramel. Flavor is ...soapy? Not in a negative way, but weird. Nice dry finish. Pretty simple, but not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Considering this is a contract brew for Cosco it is an excellent beer with good malt flavours and hops aromas. Full flavoured with a nice head and lasting bitterness, a very good beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; poured an amber orange color with an off white head. Aroma of herbs, fruit, bread, and caramel. Flavor was decent; a bit sharp but had some decent herb bitterness in the finish. Some sweetness and caramel. A bit of a one note beer, but it was ok overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle served in pint glass. Brewed by "New Yorker Brewing Co., Utica, NY". Pours a clear copper/amber color with medium bubbling and about one finger of whitish. Most of the head dissolves quickly but thin partial head remain and leaves a little lacing.
A - faint toasted grain and light hop aroma.
T - Starts crisp with a nice and substantial citrus hop flavor. The malt comes thru next, so the flavor sweetens nicely, with some caramel, herbal and toasted grain notes. Well balanced pale ale with a decent finish; a bit of burnt off-flavor in the aftertaste.
M - medium/light body with medium carbonation. Slightly dry finish.
O: good value
