3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden orange with minimal frothy head. Aroma is very citrusy and full or earthy tones as well. The taste is astringent and finishes with a bit of malty sweetness. I really enjoy the mix of the styles and think it makes for a delicious beer
Either this or hop happy is my favorite of the variety pack so far

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Milwaukee Ale House.
The beer is golden hued with a small white head. The aroma offers biscuit malt, citrus, hops. A straightforward brew, in the "balanced" style of pale ales. Bready malts and hops with just a hint of alcohol. Easy drinking with moderate carbonation. Average...

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dirty golden brown, light tan head. Musty, stale earthy. Slight honey. Bitter, some sweetness. Lighter body, watery. Quite acidic. Meh.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Surprising aroma of caramel and sweet bread. Mild notes of hops. Orang amber in color...decent tan head. Sweet malt up front, slightly rich. Caramel is light also, then an average bitterness creeps in. Some notes of citrus in there, but faint. Finishes with a harsh bitterness, somewhat balanced with sweetness. O.k. but nothing special.

Hazed amber with a thin tan head and a ring of lace. Aroma is dusty and pale with floral hops, caramel and mild noble hops. Taste is middle of the road sweetness with caramel, floral hops and some vinous notes. Mildly bitter a bit dull.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 Tasted on tap at Milwaukee Ale House. It was clear amber with a thin white head and even lacing. Mild citrus hop aroma and a hoppy taste with a bitter finish. A nice pale ale.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma of toast, pine, citrus. Clear light amber gold with white foamy head which fades moderately quickly leaving ample lacing. Strong hops flavor, earthy. A little sharp on the finish but overall not too bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
What you would expect a pale ale to be, no bells or whistles included: a mildly hoppy aroma, bitter taste and dry finish. The malts are hinted at but not obvious.
