2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Weak pale ale, too light and too bitter for what it wants to be, not very pleasant at all. The nose is flat and grainy, meaning the hops sneak up on you as you sip the pint. Thin texture mingles with an assertive, medicinal bitterness; you wait in vain for the malt sweetness to balance the dry finish, but itís watery pine all the way down. Much better pale ales to be found on the shelves.

Alright, everyone is ripping this beer apart. I had to drink a 6er (not in one sitting) to fully judge this one. It is watery. Very thin. But itís Left Hand, not Avery. They make their beers to be subtle and sessionable, but still they do good stuff. This is the best "mowing the lawn" pale ale I have ever consumed. There is not a ton to it, but it is a light pale with good flavor. It serves its purpose and is an excellent hot weather pick.

12oz bottle. Pours orange, clear and bright, with a thin white head. Aroma is grainy with touches of floral hops. Flavor is crisp, slightly grainy, with touches of herbal hops and bitterness. Finish is dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is brisk and light bodied. Overall, a good session beer but nothing really special.

Dark murky gold with a light white head, watery, thin cap...weak nose with a little hops, toffee and wet grains, boring... Tastes terrible, bitter alcohol, generic hops, skunky too... This is utter garbage not worth trying

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. No date on this one that I could find. Poured into a New Belgium tulip style glass a clear, honey golden color with a slight off white head that has a pretty poor retention. The head does collar slightly around the glass. The aroma is a slightly skunky citrus note that like over ripe grapefruit and orange. Medium mouthfeel. Muted citrus flavors with a slight sweetness. Rather bland in flavor to be honest with a minimal hop presence. Even in the back end there is minimal flavors. Overall, this is a subpar APA that I would not consider buying anytime soon.

Dry Rye. That sums up this beer in a nushell. Limited Aroma. Dry, malty pale ale. Very drinkable with some mexican cousine.

Clear golden with a lacing, puffy white head that lasts forever. Aroma of citrus and pine and pale malt. Tastes like tortilla chips, pale malt and hay. Medium-thin. The aroma is MUCH better than the taste.
