2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much aroma to speak of, pale copper/brownish color, quite clear. Taste is smooth with a touch of caramel after a brief hop bite, finishes lightly sweet and malty. Not overly complex but not bad. Quite refreshing and easy drinking, but nothing outstanding. That being said it would make an excellent yard or pool beer to keep around even if it is not going to wow anyone.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear medium copper, average white head. Surprisingly little in the way of aroma or flavour, just a bit of caramel and bland grains. To quote my buddy Rosser: "BOOOORRRRRRRIIIINNNNGGGG."

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear amber with minimal head. It has a malty, bready aroma of barley and a hint of hops. The taste is of thin, watery barley water. Tastes similar to Goya Malta or something, very light for its colour. No discernable defects really, just very bland, watery and more or less meh...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a half finger of head on a clear, dark copper colored body.
The aroma is a good, if faint, grain and malt smell.
The taste is fairly bland. A touch of sweetness.
The texture is too fizzy with a crisp texture.
At 4.8% and no real flavor you could go to town on these and not be offended.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper body with a short white head. Caramel malt aroma. Thin palate. Lightly malty flavor, slightly bready and even more faint caramel sweetness with muted, mild but typical pale ale aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Aroma of caramel and crackers. The taste is about as one dimensional as a beer can get. Slightly malty, very little hop character. Has a crisp finish. I would classify it as an amber. Nothing offensive here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma of earthy hops and caramel malt. Flavor mirrors aroma. Not much bitter just sweet malt. A not so fresh bottle I donít think. An ok beer

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the 76 station in Davis, CA. Pours a copper color with a fruity aroma. No real hop present, but a easy to drink malty beer. Notes of caramel and overall sweet malt flavor. I was pleasantly surprised.
