Light orange, poured with a thin head but excellent lacing. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of grapefruit and peach. Taste is crisp, light sweetness and some bitter. Flavors don’t really follow the aroma.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yeasty, bready, rye aroma. 12 oz bottle. Malty, dry, mostly yeast, wheat. Mildly bitter with some skunkiness and off-flavors. I don’t think the wheat/pale combination is working in this one. Tastes like an average homebrew that hasn’t bottle-aged long enough.

3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light head, with a citrus-like aroma. A nice golden amber color, with a lively palate. Had a few of these at a football game, went nice with the tailgate food.
Not too bitter, so, you can have a few without being overwhelmed by the taste.

This is in no way a good beer. I like IPA and ale type beers but this would turn me off of the group if this was the first beer I had.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells like a light pale ale with a hint of crystal and an interesting fruity ester thing going on as it warms that is pretty nice. Tastes pretty boring though, if not slightly nast.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper ale. Long lasting white head. Mike malt aroma. Mostly malty flavor, sorta balanced but lots of dark sugar in the finish. Just way to sweet and not bitter enough to be a great pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reb ale, reb ale, you’ve torn your dress. Reb ale, reb ale, your face is a mess. The first thing I noticed about this beer was its intense, grapefruit-like citrus acidity on pour. Whether or not that’s any reflection of the beer, or just pent up offness will be determined momentarily. It has a filtered, clear light orange color, a bubbly off-white head, and steady, moderate carbonation.
It has a pleasant aroma of sweet, light caramel malts and light and citrusy hops. No off-putting yeast or hop aromas... nice on the nose, but you can tell this is a light-bodied summer ale. In the mouth, it’s less impressive. It has a slightly astringent rust flavor up front, which leads to a dry, awkwardly metallic bite in the end. At only 30 IBU, I doubt it’s from the hops. It’s light and almost creamy in the mouth, slightly sweet and even a little bready, but there’s no escape from the oxidized weirdness. I’ve definitely become a beer snob. Then again, it shouldn’t be that hard to make a good pale ale.
