2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy golden coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of fresh grassy and slightly grapefruity hops with some malt and a touch of fruity sweetness. Light-bodied; Odd grassy flavour at first then shows a lot of malt bitterness, some watery hops and a little bit of earthing funk at the end. Aftertaste has no body at all, only a little flavour and a hint of bitterness. Overall, not such a great beer - the flavour depth doesn’t exist and the complexity shows more like a pale lager. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant Food in Falls Church (Bailey’s Crossroads), Virginia on 08-February-2012 for US$9.99/6pack sampled at home in Washington on 14-March-2012.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate malt notes of light bread, grain and roasted, spruce and orange for the hops, light soap for the yeast with faint hints of wood, pepper and carambola. Head is small, frothy, white with some slippery lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is murky light amber/orange with a few small particles. Flavor starts lightly acidic and finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. The orange-y hop profile, though subdued, is very noticable in the American Pale Ale.
