3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle shared by someone- DrSilverworm, danielcoor, dudeabide- not sure which, but thanks! Pours a clear gold with a small eggshell-colored head. Aroma of pale and bready malts, straw, and grassy hops. The flavor is the same, but more grainy. Light-bodied, with a bready, grainy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Simple APA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was an all-around flavorful pale ale with a quick bitter finish. The best part is how easily it goes down, followed by soft lemongrass and bready notes. Cheers!

Bottle before Birds game. Poured copper brown with light head and lace. Taste is sugar, malt, hops, pine, and a little marshmallow. Fuller bodied pale ale that tended to be too sweet and bland. Average

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Pours a beautiful orange/burnt straw with little to no lasting head. Great citrusy aroma. The aroma carries through on the flavor with nice hoppy note. Flavor is somewhat light but absolutely perfect for an easy drinking pale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taste has a nice amount of citrusy hops, making it bitter but very well-balanced with the malts. Not an overpowering pale ale, more refreshing and lighter than many. Very easy-drinking.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Roasted note for the malt, light grass and resin for the hops, with hints of sweat and wood. The head is frothy, off-white, with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic, heavily bitter and a bit sour. Palate is medium, watery, has a lively carbonation and finishes moderately dry. An extremely bitter American Pale Ale

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a darkened orange color, glowy at the edges. Quite hazy. Small white-ish head. Not much lacing. The aroma is a bit weaker than I’d like. It’s pretty much just citrus/pine hops with some biscuity malt. Grapefruit rind, pine needles, a little grass. The taste is pretty dry. There’s some toasty malt character, but it’s mostly marked a somewhat bland hop bitterness. That’s not to say it’s a bad beer. It’s just well-worn territory and not exciting. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Normal carbonation. There’s some body to the beer. I quite liked McNellie’s Pub Ale, so this beer is a bit disappointing. Still, it’s easy to drink and refreshing.
