3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unusual flavour profile. Pours a clear light amber with a soapy off white head. The nose is piney and citrus hops with light toasted cara malts and light floral notes. First sip is a bit sweet with toasty malts and caramel malts. The hops have basic citrus fruit notes but come off as metallic and soapy. Boring finish with the metallic hop taste throughotu. Overall, a very standard pale ale.

Bottle Mighty Matanuska Brewfest: Poured a golden color with white head. Nice fresh floral hops filled my nose. Taste was hops, watery, very mellow, and refreshing. A let down compared to the aroma.

Light amber. Grassy hops on the nose. Biscuity malt and a decent dose of grassy, earthy hops. Crisp and refreshing pale ale. Nice everyday drinking ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle- Pours mostly clear amber with a nice fluffy white head that mostly sticks around. Aroma is nice, typical New Belgium hops, I totally smell Rampant in this, which is a good thing, i love that beer, tropical fruity, pine, some sweetness. Taste is the same, they must use the same hop profile in each of these, nice tropical fruitiness, mellow yet assertive bitterness, sweet well integrated malt. Much better than I was expecting, for some reason I thought this would be boring.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from a case bought at work. Aroma is piney, earthy hops--smells pretty fresh. Pours clear copper with a thick cream-colored head with excellent retention, leaving curtains of lace. Taste is biscuity, earthy, wet river rock. Light bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation. A very good straight pale ale, but I’m not sure why they put it out as an autumn seasonal. Seems like a late spring/early summer type of beer to me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear dark copper with a half finger off white head. Average lacing and head retention.
Aroma is very biscuity with heavy touches of pine. Caramel and toffee as well. There is a very good balance between malt and hops.
Flavor is very similar to the aroma. Lots of earth and pine backed up by biscuit malt. More toast and caramel with some lingering pine. Bitterness is just moderate with lingering sweetness.
Overall, a nice if slightly unimpressive beer. Malty and toasty but I’ve had better from New Belgium.

Bottle - average size foamy head, dark clear copper color, moderate citrus hop aroma and flavor, balanced well with toasty malts, not bad overall but missing a little "pop"
