3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared by Parksy. Light golden, hazy, medium white head. Aroma is grainy and grassy, faintly of dried flowers. Lightly biscuity pale malt structure, grassy bitter hops, hint of metal. I would swear this is a pilsener, and a decent one at that!

Not bad at all. It was actually good enough that it made me want to take my time drinking and enjoy it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Clear copper color with an off-white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of celery, malts, and green fields. The flavors make a fair attempt at being well balanced with a bit of an hairspray aftertaste. Thin body with a fairly bitter aftertaste. Ok, but not radiant.

This is a clean summer ale as in lacking flavor- a pale taste with an odd bitter aftertaste

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Bottle] Lightly clouded amber hue, decent head formation. Very vague on the nose, a little earthy, a little citrus. All citrus on the palate, finishes with a big lemony bitter citrus. Thereís some sweet malt in the middle but itís minimal. Maybe a good afternoon refresher but a little light and simple.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle which is part of a 4-pack from BevMo - Pours a clear copper color with a one and a half finger thick off white head. Aroma is spicy herbal hops. Flavor is lightly sweetened toasted malt, and herbal and pine hops. Dry finish, medium body. This beer is very Lager like. Not your typical APA. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle from a mixed 4 pack that was purchased at BevMo in Natomas, CA. The aroma is metallic with a little spiciness, and not much else happening. Maybe a little ginger spiciness? This has a lot of floaties it. Copper colored body with a smallish off-white head present. This is a pretty smooth and malty start. Caramel malts with a little nuttiness present. Finishes with a snappy, crisp, grassy hoppy finish. Moderate bitterness. Iím usually not a big fan of APAs, but this one is delicious.
