2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from the local Costco. Pours a very clear amber color with a fairly thick off-white head on there. Nose is actually maltier than I expected, with some caramel and bread in there. Taste is slightly bitter and a bit earthy, and lacks any complexity you look for in a brew. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light gold with small head that doesn’t last. Kind of an old school pale ale vibe. Grassy reisin hops, bitter finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz in Seattle. Very simple and plain orange-brown. Sour sickly aroma, odd amber malts and a little bit of hops. Sweet medicinal quality, sticky thick feel. Metallic sour finish. Pretty awful.

A: pours an amber ale with two fingers of peanut head which falls quickly to a sheet of the same. No lacing. Excellent clarity.
S: Sweet malts, herbal hops. More sweet malts. Some chemical smells here. Some butter, some corn.
T: Tastes like cheap, oxidized malts, tea, herbal hops and sugar.
M: Medium body with hi carb. Dry finish
O: Not a good beer, and not much different than the IPA IMO.
Serving type: bottle

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
