3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Third beer into my flight here and I’m starting to notice a sameness between all the beer - this is clean, medium dry, crisp, with piney and citric hops - nothing stand out, but clean and quaffable - a light bit of estery notes - not as malt-forward as most alts I have had - decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured a clear orange with a beige head. Aroma of floral, earthy tones and malted grains. Seemed almost like a muted pale ale in character. A mild hop bitterness with toasted malts and sweet caramel in the finish.

Draught at brewpub. Somewhat malty Alt but weak overall body and lacking strong malt character.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright orange with a creamy head and nice lace. Moderate carbonation; nice and creamy texture. Malts were lightish but tasty, sweet and clean. Aroma was pleasant, with notes of flowers and herbs, and a little citrus. More like an IPA than an alt, but it still tasted good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a medium head that left some excellent lacing. It has a very good citrus aroma. The flavor has some caramel malts and moderately strong hops that balance well. It closes with a big hops finish. Good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange-amber with modest head. Warming malt nose pricked with citrus hop infusion. Not terribly alt-like hoppy body. More in the style of a hop-centric American Amber / Red Ale. Solid malt backbone with juicy citrus hop infusion. Moderate citrus bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Two pints on tap at the brewpub. Nice crisp general malt and hop aroma, leaning Cascade and hop heavy.
Snappy - I like this. Pours a rich coppery red, deeper hued with a
good lacey off-white head. Flavor is rich and clean. Balanced fresh
malt sugars play off a classic west-coast hop bitterness, accented
nicely with restrained levels of flavor and aroma. Finishes bright and
clean. Real drinkable and rewarding.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. This is a heavy hopped alt with a big bitter finish. I wish it had a bit more balance. Pours a clear copper with a white head. Very hoppy aroma with a light malt scent. Taste starts with a nice sweet malt that is quickly taken over by the big hop finish.
