3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma - Herbal, malty undertones.
Appearance - Clear and golden in color.
Taste- Malt sweetness not quite kept in check by the bitterness. Very little hop flavor. In past years this beer has been hoppier or at least I recall it being hoppier. Regardless of my memory, this beer needs a bit more hop flavor.
Palate: above average carbonation with a medium to light body, finishes a bit sweeter than I’d prefer.
Overall: Not as good as my first impression of this beer. I had this beer at least two or three times last year and was impressed with it’s flavor. It’s a pretty bland APA and I would not recommend it this year.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Golden orange color with a modest eggshell colored head. Light aromas of citrus and malts present. Light to medium light body with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Well-balanced but almost too much so. Quite a boring simple beer.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a nice gold with a thin white head that lasts. Taste is of malt, caramel, hops, citrus and some pine. Similar aroma. Has a nice full body with a hoppy finish. Overall, a good beer.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light smell of light hops, low carbonation, taste is light hops no malt, fruity citrus hops...not too over powering, improves a touch with time

Nothing to write home about. Average ale from local brewery. Not enough hops or malt to get ya excited.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from a bottle. Yellow with a tiny white head. Very little aroma and even less taste. Disappointing beer by a good brewery. We’ll not drink it again.

Nice, drinkable, pale ale that I would get again. Forcing me to write a comment though is really annoying
