3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ the brew pub. Pours a clear golden/light amber color with a small white head leaving light lacing. The aroma is fruity (mainly citrus) with some floral qualties. The flavor has sweet caramel malt, citrus, floral hoppiness, and light bread. Very drinkable and worked well between some of the bigger beers I sampled during my stay.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. Aroma is caramel and sweet citrus fruits. Cloudy medium gold hue with a mostly diminishing white head that left good lace. Flavor is very good, just like aroma. Great example of a pale ale. Hoppy and bitter but not over the top. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Where did this come from?! Fantastic!

On tap at the Durham WBF. Hazy gold with an off white head. Soft, sweet white grapefruit nose, some woodsy notes, and something like an orange creamsicle? Medium to light body. Orange comes on a bit in the flavor, along with sweet caramel. Very good!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft, light to medium amber with gold around the edges, a good covering of a white and off-white head that relaxed to a thin covering,
aroma of citrus and floral hops, some malt, fruit and little sweetness, faint bread fragrance, taste of citrus hops with malt, some malt sweetness,
faint fruit flavor, hops dominated in this all the way to the finish, this pale ale was bordering on being a IPA, the finish was dry with the hop citrus
lingering on the palate, easy to drink, this would be refreshing on a hot Summer day, it is not heavy on the palate, the mouth feel appeared to be a little thin
but could the hops help give that type of a mouth feel?
This pale ale was not over carbonated, anyway, this was a nice drink, I would recommend it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden-amber with a medium head. Aroma is light and citrusy with some light malt detectable. Flavor is dominated by citrus and light floral hops with a slight caramel/bready malt flavoring. Pretty good overall APA, but not a standout against Kuhnenn’s other offerings.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Kuhnhenn. The server stated that this wasn’t the "normal" Loonie Kuhnie pale ale, the translation being that they brewed this in a kettle previously used for a hefeweizen that wasn’t cleaned out properly. So, instead of a traditional pale ale, this was a weird mix of citrusy hops and clove-like esters. I wasn’t impressed.
