Not a great balance. Like an esb with tons of alcohol, but doesn’t come together. Some barley and slight hint of citrus. Too much resinous pine. Brown pour. Bottle.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Dev-Ale has a fairly thin, off-white head, a clear, sparkling, copper appearance, and minimal lacing. The aroma is of light citrus, pine, and sweet candi sugar. Flavor is mostly of those things, with some breadiness and just a touch of alcohol, way in the back. The mouthfeel is mostly thin and a bit slick, it finishes mostly dry. Overall its easy drinking, and is pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber to light copper in color. Smallish dark beige head. Quite fruity is the aroma. Lavender and chamomile are a relax scent as well. This has a bit of age on it (bottled 8/12/14) so some of the scents may have subsided. Herbal hops and light fruit sweetness hit the tongue early. Light caramel in the middle with a continued herbal component. A little nuttiness, which might be from the age in the finish. 4/15

12oz bottle, brought back from Florida. Poured a dark orange color with a small very light off-white head. Aroma was lots of caramel malts, with some light fruit, touch of the tropics. Flavor had some light bitter hop notes, with a lot of sweet malts.
