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 Bert’s 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 it’s definitely quite drinkable and I’d 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. I’m 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

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in Wolfesboro,NH. Poured a golden orange color with a one finger white head that fell into thin lacing. Aroma has light malt sweetness, caramel, and some herbalness. Taste has a touch of light cerial grain sweetness and some caramel that is balanced nicely with a hop bitterness that is slightly herbal and piney. Mouthfeel is light bodied and smooth, with just enough bite from the carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma very reminiscent of SN Pale ALe except a little more of a carmelly note. Strong floral and spice hop notes. Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow with a really persistent, thick head. Again with the carmel notes, some alcohol and the hop bitterness throughout upon tasting. Not terribly dry. Has a big mouthfeel. Long finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
24oz can. Multiple tastings. Pours cloudy golden-orange with a white head. Have had this several times at the brewpub in Conway but it took drinking it from the can at home to realize how good a pale ale this one really is. Citrus and sweet malt flavors up front with bitter hops at the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 24 flo. oz. can. It pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a huge, puffy head. The aroma is moderate in grapefruit-citrus and sweet malts but lower in hops. The body is fuller than many pales and quite creamy and delicate. The taste begins sweet and finishes with a pleasant hop bitterness. A nice pale.
