3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Albany Taproom, Albany, CA. Very much an American pale ale made like an altbier: clean, light caramel malt backbone, American hop bitterness in back with little aroma or flavor. Light malt aroma. Very clean fermentation. Not crazy about it, but it does seem well-made.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pilsner aroma paired with grassy hops in this crystal clear pale orange brew wit white head. Crisp grainy dry slight malt flavor with a dry bitter aftertaste. Its light bodied good tinny bubble carb. An alright brew worth a try. A good lawn mower brew

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
~Bready malt aroma with caramel and earthy hop.
~Pours a clear light copper color with long lasting foamy white head.
~Earthy hops and bitterness in flavor well balanced with a malty bready sweetness that smooths out the bitterness on the tongue.
~Medium bodied, medium CO2, lingering earthy bitterness.
~Enjoyable brew. A bit on the bitterside, but fairly balanced. I would be happy to drink a couple of these.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bob’s.
Copper pour, modest head. Nose of copper and sweaty socks. Hops come on strong considering -- definitely a NW interpretation. Flavor of stale and slightly rancid airplane peanuts. Interesting but the whole doesn’t come together into anything that actually works.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from the Woodland Nugget. Pours hazy golden amber with a slight, transient white head. Aroma seems lightly floral, maybe backed by a bit of caramel. Med body. Flavor is likely sweet, mildly roasty malt - which moves into a moderately bitter herb/tea aspect. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden straw, aroma has light florals, and a touch of grassy hop and a biscuity pale malt note. Dry first, crackery with vague hop. Finish starts to get doughy though.
