2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Mad Anthony. Hazy filtered golden body. Foamy off-white head. It is woody, in a barky way. Resinous. Very old school APA. Syrupy and not impressive in 2014. You can’t go to wrong with cascade, but this has that bland crystal malt feel.

Average Pale Ale at best. What else is there to say. Cannot be compared to any of the greats in the craft movement.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Clear orange color. Good thin off-white head. Dots and ropes of lace. Medium body. Smooth, sort of soft lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Caramel malt, and a moderately hoppy finish. Light spicy. Light piney / citrusy hop. Balanced flavor profile, but nothing too exciting. Hint of metallic. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid pale ale, pretty good. I liked it better than the IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle Courtesy of Queenholly. My English pint is displaying a lightly hazy amber color. Nice retention down the glass. Nose is indeed lightly woody with pine notes. Tastes of Earthy, pine hops, caramel malts with hints of toffee. Bitterness is light having the light pine showing up in the finish. It’s a respectable Pale Ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle
The last part of a mixed six pack, this was picked up out of curiosity. The result is a decent local on par with most regional only breweries. That said I am in no hurry to try more Mad Anthony unless there is a good sale going on.
Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated amber base supports an ivory head that floats like chunks of icing. Orange glaze, resin, and a wheat base are hardly aggressive. Instead it smells like a woody cabin at the beginning of the camping season.
Flavor / Palate - Resin, almonds, and grassy hops impress a bit. Overall this is pretty average for an American pale. If it were my local I wouldn’t be totally upset. However I am not going to buying more any time soon.

Bottle courtesy of queenholly. Thanks! Pours a fairly hazy amber color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of woody, earthy hops with caramel malts and a bit of apple. The taste is herbal, woody hops, some citrus, caramel malts and a dry finish. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness. Decent APA.
