3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a medium golden color with good clarity and a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is grainy, oatmeal, toast and a hint of citrus. Palate follows with a heavy graininess, stale grass profile and a spicy almost rye like bitterness that comes through midpalate and lingers in the finish. Uneventful.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Some caramel frosted crackers and hay, not a lot of fruit. Clear orange, moderate carbonation, or so it appears. Sweet malty flavor with some mineral presence. Some bitterness, maybe 20 BUs. Undermined by it’s softness, the plush body gives it a watery feel. On the other hand this makes it very drinkable with an okay flavor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured an orange amber color with a one finger white head that retained very well. Aroma has mild pale malts, light hops, and some dusty citrus. Mouth feel is average for the style and there is plenty of carbonation. Flavor is mostly malts with a touch of bitterness and dusty aged hops.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A bit too watery and bland. Nothing sticks out. The color is on the dark side for a pale ale.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured bottle with nice white head. Decent malt aroma but darker than expected color. Taste was thin, with no discernable impact. Beer finished bitterly without giving a sense of hops. Disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I hate when pale ales arent pale. This is a flavorless english amber with not much going on at all. Very watery and lightly hopped with slightly spicy hops. Mediocre at best.
