2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty aroma has a good yeasty overtone and a hint of apple. Pours a lovely clear orange-golden amber with a fairly thick and frothy cream-white head that leaves some good lacing. Malty flavor has subtle fruity and grassy notes, enjoyable if nothing special. Texture has about average body and not much fizz. If not a spectacular ale, worthy of at least a try.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. A pale golden beer, clear, topped by a small, dense, off-white head. Too weak aroma, some grassy and fruity hints, pine too, but mostly it’s on the malty side. The flavor has the same problem. It’s not bad in and way, just plain boring. Medium to thin on the palate. Short, fruity finish. Sure drinkable but way too boring. 130807

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden wheat color. No head, but that’s the way the waitress poured it. Very grainy and butterscotch aroma. Very nice mouthfeel--slick and wet. Butterscotch flavor that is balanced with a barely noticeable hop. In fact, without making a special effort to look for the hop, you’ll miss it. A little under-hopped for an APA. IBUs might be at the APA level, but the aggressive grain bill disallows the hops to express themselves.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly better then average pale ale. Pours a boring yellow. Not much smell either. Taste is smooth, tropical fruit, with a very slight hoppy finish. Not bad, but a little average.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from the discount bin at Five Points Bottle Shop (Atlanta Highway) in Athens. Mild fruit juice (pears), sugar, and some caramel in the nose. Very light hazy pale straw, thin white head, some lace. Dull swet initial / mid palate relly goes nowhere / thin mildly fruit aftertaste. Thin-medium body. No much going one here. A fairly dull beer.

Hazy yellow, hints of marmalade with a nice white head. Soft fruity orange caramel nose, a little earthy yeast. Taste follows the nose quite closely, with a kolsch like softness to it. Soft carbonation, short finish with more fruit, apricot. Quite nice.
