3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to my buddy Chadwell! Dirty dark orange pour, 1/2 inch head and some light hops & bitter orange aroma. Flavor is a nice meld of caramel, almonds, some slightly sweet herbal hops and finished rich and malty. Iíd definitely pick this up if it ever made it to MN.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a clear deep golden color with a thick yet quickly disapating head. Aroma is of hops, grain, malts, slight grass, and tin. Flavor is pretty much the same. A little more of a dry pale ale. Leaves a bitter dry hop finish. Nothing special.

24 oz can amber color medium sweetness, lively carbonation. Glad to be able to try a new offering from NH, but the best thing about this one might be the interesting can. Ok pale ale.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly muddy brown color with a good sized off white head. Aromas are straight malts with touches of toasted bread, caramel and bit of honey sweetness. On the palate its alot of the same but tastes a bit watered down... a bit like a small beer. Not bad but I remember some better batches in the past.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half into a pint glass and half from the can. Fingers worth of white head. Clear, light-orange body. Lemon and orange-citrus candy on the nose with a touch of sweet malt. Light citrus on the tongue with caramel malt. Some light hop bitterness on the finish. Smooth body, carbonation is good. Decent beer overall. Nothing really stands out, but it goes down easy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in North Conway, NH. Pours a clear golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is bready pale malts with a light caramel and a medium-light floral hopping. Citruses, a light peach, and a few pine notes. Flavor is similar. Bready, thinner feeling pale malts and a light caramel with a decent amount of floral citruses. Grapefruit grows a bit towards the end as this dries nicely with a light grassy and floral bitterness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light, smooth body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty basic, but decent pale ale. Decently hopped and easy drinking. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
24oz can, purchased at Bertís Better Beers - Hooksett, NH. Aroma is a clean, fresh plain and lightly hoppy ale. Flavors are similar. This has a nice lace and a balanced body. Certainly nothing outstanding about this beer and the malt gets a little old-tasting, but itís definitely quite drinkable and Iíd be happy to have a couple of cans of this on the trail to get me through.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
24 oz can, a gift during hard times. Cracked it open with decent expectations, I mean it is a 24 oz can. Good amber/copper hue, with a frothy white head. This one for lacking flavor is actually balanced for what the style dictates. Iím not going to compare it to a Sierra Pale, but I will say that it is thirst quenching and refreshing. Would I go out of my way to get it? No, but it is a decent offering that deserves a little love.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
tall boy can... light orange copper body, a big light tan head that sticks for awhile, not much lace... the nose is a bit amateur, mostly sweet, a bit of a weird wet dog and bo mixture, wet grains, no haps... the taste brings some hops but its more metallic than anything, generically sweet, not terrible but boring...ok
