3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes. Rcvd in trade.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice somewhat hazy orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light speckled and foamy lacing all around.
The smell had some light sweet citrus also letting in some grapefruit. Caramel malts are there but pretty subdued.
The taste was pure bittersweet all the way through letting the hops dominate over the malts.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and somewhat sharp but not overbearing.
Overall I say this was a pretty good APA well worthy of having again if available to me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can from Steve’s in Fitchburg. Pours a golden copper with an off-white head. Some nice streaky lacing. Aroma has fresh fruit and pine. Later down in the glass some sour fruits and caramelly malts kick in. Taste is of sweet fruits, grapefruit, some spruce, a solid caramel malt backbone and a touch of the grape. Medium bodied with more alcohol presence than expected from 5.2. Finishes somewhat sweet, somewhat bitter ... and somewhat short. Pleased to have a Menomonie brew for my 50th APA rating, in honor of the second son. 13.6

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very nice aroma of fruit, citrus, and caramel malts. Unfortunately the taste does not match the aroma. Diacetyl is too dominant in this beer, and thus, it suffers. Not undrinkable, but not so enjoyable either. Slightly let down, as I love a well made pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can - Pours lightly hazy amber with a foamy light tan head. Nose is light caramel malt, grassy hops, and a juicy citrus. Dry. Taste is dry and malty, with sharp citrus and pine hops. Not too astringent, but it’s drying. Clean. Medium-bodied with full carbonation. Pretty decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can, consumed on 4-30-14. Pleasant, appetizing, hops-dominated aroma is piney and lightly floral. Scents of cracker, freshly baked bread, caramel, toffee, vanilla, honey, and apricot. Pours a clear bronze with a moderate amount of taupe head. Looks good, although not outstandingly so. Crisp, dry, floral hops dominate the flavor. Flavor elements include clay, grapefruit, and pine. Pleasant, biscuity malt base. Mostly just a really nice, simple dryness to the taste. Medium body. Reasonably lively in the palate. Simple but nice palate effects. Overall, Lucette Ride Again is just a simple, solid, well made, enjoyable, refreshing pale ale, and it’s an excellent and well above average representative of its style. I’m impressed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap - small foamy head, medium copper orange color, nice big citrus hop aroma and flavor, fair malt balance, very hoppy for a regular pale ale which is good for me!

Not normally into hoppy beers, but this one isn't overwhelming and has some nice citrus.
