3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light golden color with a small off-white head. lighter floral hopped aroma, with some sweet caramel smells, a bit toasty. Taste starts with a quick jostle of sweet malt then quickly fades to a floral hop finish. A smooth a crisp pale, could use a bit more malt, but alright as an easy drinkin brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Relatively clear straw-colored body with fine suspended sediment, thin off-white head. Light floral aroma with cereals and slight bitterness. Body is watered-down and pretty pathetic, with tiny piney hops and light cereals. It’s as if the brewers added a few drops of flavor to a glass of water. A weak APA if I may say.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2004 Very Good. Nice Fruity blast right off the top. Could not put my toungue on the exact fruit i was tasting, but it kind of tailed off as it warmed up.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 A deep golden ale with a thin white head, this did have a whiff of an herbal aroma similar to heather ales that I’ve had. Mainly it carries a mild flowery scent. I would’ve liked a heavier accent on the malt. Still, it has a nice feel and gives a crisp, clean drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well, interesting. High carbonation faded to modest bitterness followed by a fruitiness which was not sweet. My first impression was that this was a pretty darn good pilsner. Not a typical pale ale for sure, but I liked it and would be easy to drink several.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottled: had 6 diff macs last night. this was #4 in the string. pours amber with a small tan head. nice piney grass nose, biggg; somewhat of a tease when you expect it to have more of a hoppy flavor, but not much bittering hops added. pretty mellow on the palate. easy to drink and crisp and dank.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Golden amber in color with a slight white head that disappeared quickly. Very good hop aroma, but light on the hop bite. Light palate; a clean/crisp beer. They call it "herbal", but it does have a floral essence to it. Drinable, but I would have liked more hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2004 Bottle. No head and a light gold color. Slightly sour at first in both the taste and aroma. Then oranges come out in both the taste and aroma. A very light pale ale. A decent entry.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is grassy and very weird, smells like rubber in a way. Pour is a clear blondish color with a quickly dissipating white head. Start is mild, leading to more of that grassy maltiness in the end. Very one dimensional. Dissapointing.
