2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma does not suck me in. The appearance does not draw me to taste it. What does make me jump in to drink this brew is the experience of something new. What the stranger brings to the table is a flavor that you expect from a pale ale. The draw back here is that the stranger is what I expected from a pale ale. Itís "slightly" above average in my mind compared to the norm. It wonít blow you away. But it is a satisfying ale. I like beverages that set the bar not just meet the standard.

clear yellow liquid with a light orange glow... lovely fresh hops in aroma (citra? citrus?) both in nose and mouth... balanced bitterness but too watery to stand out

Overall a pretty good beer. Very smooth up until the finish when the bitterness goes just a little into being almost too sharp.

Crystal clear golden pour. Medium thick white head. Grapefruit and lemon hop aromas. Mild breadiness in malt. Crisp malt bite with a grapefruit hop flavors. Pretty well balance with no overwhelming flavors. Clean medium bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is a moist, citrus hop with mild malt. Pours a rich golden color with a thin white head. Thin mouthfeel with coppery lead and moist, malty finish. Hops are fresh and grassy. Well balanced.

On tap at Royal Palm Atlantic Beach, FL. Very average but clean and easy. Nothing unpleasant but could do more (like a Golden Monkey).

On tap Blackthorn Pub, Holly,MI...nice crisp session ale with some rye spiciness. This was a good starter on a night of tasting at the Left Hand tap takeover.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Single bottle. Hazy gold pour with a thick, choppy head. Skunky aroma. Dirty water taste with a crushed aspirin finish. Hopefully this was just a bad sample. Otherwise, itís pretty awful. A poor substitute for Jackmanís, if that was the intent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden blonde pour into thin off-white foamy head that slowly dissipates into melting lacing. Aroma of malty spruce and grapefruit. Initial flavor of peppery hoppiness that slowly fades into bitter, lightly toasted rye bread.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured into a pint glass, pours pale yellow, with little head. Nose of hops, biscuits, some floral notes. Taste is really light for this style beer. More like a lager.. Not much flavor. An easy to drink beer, perfect for summer, but just not much for the beer style.
