3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An inviting and interesting aroma - some citrus zip, sweet honey tones, various esters, a mild mix-bag of hops. Clear, golden brew with a white, clingy head. Good label. The first sip of this put me off - maybe palate shock from the previous, sweet beer. Things leveled off after that, though. Lemon/grapefruit pith astringency and bitterness over a golden syrup backbone. Medium body, aftertaste has a little tinniness. ABC, Betton.

Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando. Clear golden-orange pour with minimal head. Aroma is hop and cardboard. Slight bread and caramel on the taste. Not very good.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.

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.
