bottle. This had a nice little hop bite and a nice taste. It isn’t anything special, but a nice easy session beer that I would choose again.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle poured a slightly cloudy amber wtih an off-white head and moderate lacing. Aroma was of hops, with some fruit and citrus and is very mild. Mouthfeel is light and clean. Flavor is the smae as the nose. Slighly bitter finish. Enjoyaable to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
An amber pour with a guey lacing. A light hops aroma but the hops don’t really jump out at you, very clean aroma. A light sweet maltiness with a theng of hop bitter. The bitter clings for a while but it is an oh so lite bitter. A very decent palate smooth but not really slick. Not thin not hugely full but good. A beer that may not have the bitter I was hoping for but a pretty balanced adventure.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice hoppy aroma. Flavor was nicely balanced, but not too invigorating. A bit of hops, a bit of malts, but not screaing at you. Medium bodied. Decent with red-chile New Mexican tamales.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromas, but light ones, of malt and citrus. Ripe apricot color and a beige head that’s not small. Starts with wet, followed by light hop, and arguably some malt. The mouthfeel is substantial, but the flavor is a bit thin. Still, the finish is bitter, and it is persistent. Somewhat of a mouthsmacker.

Medium Amber color. Soft hop smell...easy to drink and it’s good and malty. Pine flavor and smell that add to the niceness of this Pale. It’s not your over hopped Pale Ale,

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured a clear dark amber with a minimal amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and a hint of citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of earthiness, crystal malt and a faint hint of pine with a smooth lightly bitter finish.

Pours a hazed red with a little head. There is a big grapefruit hop aroma. The flavor drops the ball however. I’m expecting a strong hop flavor and there is really not a whole lot in the flavor. Mild bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A huge, creamy, off-white head forms easily over this medium/dark amber beer.
Balanced aroma of light hops and malt.
Lightly sweet malt flavor, not overly bittter, but it is there, followed by a dry, bitter finish.

Thanks Chuck. August 4th, 2006 vintage. The beer pours to a nice glowing dark amber body with a tall fluffy off-white head. The aroma is light. Some pine hops and light palate malts. The flavor is really light. One could say... a pine hopped pilsner. Light pale malts in this one. So light on the palate the pine hops are easy and refreshing. Pretty basic, but very nicely balanced.
