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

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A sweet pale ale that's sure to please most with its mellow hop character and up front barley. Abrupt rather than lingering, as I think the best pales are

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured a clear copper hue w/ a white head quickly diminishing to a thin cap and excellent lacing. Moderate aroma of malt and sweet caramel. Initial flavor is a light sweet with a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are bready malts, caramel and light citrus notes. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, and a light dry finish. It is a good beer, just not a complex one. It is like a good piece of toast, you arenít going to get excited about toast, but sometimes when your eating you want a piece of toast to go with the meal.

From tap. Pours a ruby color with small head. Aroma was mildly malty and slighty sweet. Taste was caramel, sweet malt and slight bitterness. More sweet and not balanced. Mild for an ESB.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 Draft at Fado in Philly. Clear dark orange pour. Fluffy white head. Tons of lace. Mild toasted wheat flavors. Some caramel. Nice session beer but not very complex. Feels like a mild red ale. Decent looking, but way too bland.

I donít see the point. Not terrible , but not noteworthy. I like the head, but the taste is kind of metallic. Donít know what to think.

Poured into a English Pint glass from a twelve ounce bottle from a 12 pack. I find that if I donít particularly "care" for a brew new, during a specific taste time, and w/out discounting another opportunity to try it again, there has always been someone I know who will "care". This one I keep and share.
ícause it ainít too bad a Pale Ale and itís got 4.8% Vol as opposed to 4.7 inside the Brown Ale.
