3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours yellow gold, brief but ample white head. Nose is citrus and pine, with a hint of earthiness. Taste is noteable for its immediate presence, not overpowering, not harsh, but from the instant it hits the tongue, the fun begins. As it plays on the tongue it goes through a variety of tastes. It has a touch farmhouse ale, both in the aroma and the taste. Nice balance, good mouthfeel for a pale ale, medium body, long finish. It evolves over time in the glass. Overall, it’s hard for me to pin down why, but it is a substantial beer, with a subtle but complex character.

12 oz bottle purchased at Lukas Liquors in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is orange golden, mostly clear, with a one inch well formed white head. The aroma is citrus somewhat sweet peach, grass along with toasted biscuit malt. The taste is a nice blend of the citrus peach sweet grass hops and the clean malt character. The palate is light to medium bodied, active fine carbonation, and a crisp clean dry finish. Tasty Pale Ale.

Hoppy and acid aroma, quite pale color with nice foam that doesn't keep long. Nice palate and taste. Could be another of my "everyday" APA'

A very nice aroma with traces of floral and herbs. Nice taste but unfortunately a bit too bitter in my opinion.

Clear pale golden yellow pour with good sticky soapy white head. Clean crisp citrusy floral western pale ale. Every so slight ’stinkiness’ to it. Really is one of the pale ales i’ve had. Classic for the style.

Flaske 0,335l spandert av Rune og delt under ratesammenkomst hos ham 29 Mai 13. Gyldenbrun. Flott veldig luftig skum med kniplingslacing. Sterk & god ferskenaroma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er grapefrukt. Litt tørr.
