3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a clear copper-gold color with a thin bone white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and sweet malt. Medium body with flavors of pine, earthy malt and muted hops. Touches of fruit too. The finish is hoppy with a short citrusy aftertaste. This bottle was possible slightly past its prime. Pretty average overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Labeled 5.2%. Caramel malts. Light hop. Lighter, smooth carbonation, though sort of a viscous body. Kind of sweet, light bitter. Mildly hazy orange / amber color. Light khaki head has good retention and leaves good lace. OK pale ale. Nice to enjoy with lunch, but doesn’t stand out on it’s own
