3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another beer I’m way off on with my Ratebeerians. I liked the look of this one with an amber pour with a lacing white head. the aroma had bread, yeast, malt, a bit of caramel. The flavor was sweet to start but quickly turned bitter as the hops took hold. Clean and dry for the finish. Better than my comrades would suggest.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This starts with a nice floral aroma, with caramel undertones. Pours a clear amber, with a small white head. This is a malt forward beer, with a touch of rye peeking through and a mild finish. Overall, this is a nice easy drinking beer, although I would prefer more of a hop presence.

Fresh, floral aroma.
Slightly metallic flavour and pretty lame and tin actually.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Friar Tuck in Savoy, IL. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma of citrusy hops. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of pale malts and rye countered by a sharp spicy bitterness. Very dry and overattenuated for my tastes. Finish is soapy and astringent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured Clear, light straw pour with a huge foamy white head. Aromas of Light, bready malt with a bit of spiciness and light herbal hops. The flavor is grainy malts with some sweetness, leading to a grainy - peppery bitterness. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and kind of watery. Not a very good one from Left Hand. There are far more tasty Pale Ales out there.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden pour with very little head. Smells like a light pale ale. Not much going on. Palate is pretty light bodied with just enough weight to not piss me off. The taste has some bitterness but is fairly lightly hopped. Mellow sweet malts. LIghtish APA that is pretty drinkable I had 2 at the bar.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma of moderate floral hops and sweet caramel malts, perhaps some light citrus as well. Appearance is tinted gold with white head. Flavor is a good balance of the aforementioned hops and malt up front that finishes dry, but with a weird metallic character. Palate is lightly bubbly and the mouthfeel is thin. Pretty mundane APA with a few flaws holding it back.

On tap at Taco Mac Decatur. Chewy grain and caramel malt flavors. Grassy hop finish and herbal aroma. Floral aroma as well. Good straight APA with a little more hop presence and character.
