3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Carl. Pours amber with a large creamy off-white head. Aroma is a bit perfume - could be grape I suppose. Med body. Foamy carb. Itís a little floral, a little fruity, and a touch of grape is possible, but Iíd vote for floral and citrus. The malt is present, but not strongly roasted. Iím thinking more ESB than APA.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bomber from the brewery. Light amber beer. Aroma is lightly orangey and peachy with a strong house yeast sweet estery character. Lightly dusty and orangey with a touch of phenolic character. Peach and orange flavour with a decent balance of fruity grapefruity hops and pale malt. The dustiness is fairly distracting and doesnít really work in this pale ale. The house character of this yeast just comes across as dirty and it doesnít really work for me. Itís better obscured in some beers than others, but in this itís got nowhere to hide.

Pours a light copper with a thick eggshell-colored head. Fresh, clean hoppy aroma blanced with lots of sweet caramel malt. Great tasting sweet butterscotch body well balanced with a piney hop bitterness. Very smooth, refreshing and drinkable.

A solid drinkable pale. Enough C hops to give off a citrus smell, great big creamy long-lasting head. Well malted, good with lunch. Citrus taste and aftertaste dominated. Not too bitter

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2009 Proud earthy, floral hops sliding slowly on the tongue, providing decent wooden bitterness...Delicate caramelized cereals tag along with friendly citrus fruitÖA fine quencher, like most of McNeillís ales...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orangy dark straw hue, with noble hop, pale malt, grainy notes in the aroma. The palate is complex, giving unfiltered flavors of hops, malt, some slight peachy fruit. As with all beers from these guys, this one is very well done.
