3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve been wanting to try this beer since I started seeing it on the shelf. Cloudy coppery orange in appearance. Thick soapy head. Slight aroma of herbs, flowers and fresh cut grass. Crisp malty flavor that finishes with a slight roasted taste on the tounge. Overall it’s easy drinking but still retains some complexity. I’m hooked.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer pours attractive copper color with a modestly retained off white head. Aroma is lightly citrus hops with just a bit of cereal maltiness. Flavor follows the aroma with an initial hoppy begining then just a bit of malty sweetness. Pretty tasty.

Bottle. Refreshing light golden brown ale. Not sure why people call it boring as we found it to have a malty character that neither distracts nor is overbearing. Much better cold than room-temp. Another very good summer time evening beer.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is a very pleasant citrus scent. Orangish-Amber color, almost no head...bottle is beautiful. Good flavor for a pale ale which is not my favorite type of beer...not too overpowering like Sierra Nevada. Starts bitter, gets a little sweet...leaves a weird sensation on the tounge. Like most pale ales...its not too easy on the palate...but this is better than most...however it did leave a weird aftertaste in my throat. Overall I liked it...it’s one of the better pale ales that I’ve had, probably a bit better than the Sam Adams but not as good as Sweetwater 420. As a bottle collector, I loved the bottle.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bready, yeasty smell from the tip of the glass. Not much of an exciting or tantalizing head or colour to speak of. Taste was slightly piney/grassy...very slight grapefruit hints in the mouthfeel. Finish was truly weird...it was practically invisible except for this slight tingle on the tongue. This one left me confused.

On tap, pours a decent light copper with a finger thick, cream colored head. The nose is clean bitter hops and sweet malt, as is the flavor. Very easy drinking

12oz bottle. Tan-amber color, highly filtered. Mild malty aroma. Bland malt profile, with a slight hop balance. Mellow and easy drinking. Nothing special.
