2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper colored beer with a white head. Aroma of grains, some funk, and hints of hops. Tastes of grainy water, a bit of citric notes, and some mild floral hops. Semi-sweet finish. A bit muted, watery brew. Lackluster, but unoffensive.

Bottle- Pours a copper color with a decent head and some lacing. Aroma of some citrus and malt sweetness, bit of fresh grain and fruit in the background. Mild taste of malt sweetness up front with a bit of citrus and grain. there is a nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, quite smooth and refreshing. Good balance. Easy drinker, good for a few. Nothing special about this beer just an enjoyable Pale Ale to relax with.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy rusty golden color with a small white frothy head. Aroma is sweet and slightly malty. Malty sweet flavor but somewhat flat, very slight bitterness if any. Finish is short and dry. Watery ! A little disappointing from LLB, this will remain a stranger for me, unless I am very very thirsty to quaff it down. Quaff Score ( drinkability with hearty enjoyment ) 5 / 10

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a czech-pils glass, with a clear, orange/golden color, a nice layer of bubbles & cream, off white head foam, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was light cereal grain, fruit and citrus, and a slight bit of sweetness. The flavor added to these some medium & rounded hop bitterness, good carbonation, light to medium body, and a clean & crisp finish. Just on the fence from being a decent intro IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted at the St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from bottle into sampler glass. Poured an amber color with creamy off-white foam and some lace. Fairly typical, nondescript, hoppy pale ale aroma. Complex malt flavor with a restrained, tangy hops bitterness. Light-medium body, average carbonation, fruity aftertaste. Tasty and well-balanced, but not especially memorable.

Clear slightly dark golden in color with a thin foamy white head. Nose of biscuity pale malts and toast...very English and plain aroma, and I mean that in the best way possible. Taste was biscuity and citrusy, being both mildly bitter and mildly sweet. A perfect session pale ale with loads of pale cereal grain tones alongside a firm citrusy hop tone and some bready toast. The whole package is medium on body but also medium on flavor, being perfect for a casual sipper, citrusy and slightly rye-spicy. Nice pale ale essence with an everyday simplicity that’s slightly complex when you want to dive into it.

Tap @ Cardinal. Pours a white head, golden-light amber in color. The aroma is very "standard" for an american pale ale. Citrusy and fresh in the aroma. Generally a smooth drinking pale ale, like most others. All in all a decent ale.

bottle. Golden color and light white head. Nice fruity aroma, very dry mouth feel and very light body. Extremely drinkable but a bit too dry.
