3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Label says American pale ale but this is way more British to me than American. Really big mineral taste to this followed by grain and toast notes. The aroma has a slight hint of tangerine but that is far in the background in the taste. It is very bright and clear though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the tasting notes. Bomber bottle. Pours orangey amber, thin head. Hop aroma of pines and general hoppiness, taste is malt and hops. Nicely put together, nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amateur Blonde with less than impressive taste. If you want something with a soft body and a fading memory of a beer, this is for you. Not a complete dive, but a good beginning.

Flavor: Toasted malts with some multi-grain breadcrust; white grapefruit peel, resiny hops; finished dry and crisp with a bit of floral hops and bitterness. Palate: Medium-light body, crisp. Overall: Refreshing and pleasing beer with average alcohol (good thing!) that can be easily enjoyed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared from a big brown bottle into a nonic glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a clear, light golden colour with substantial white foam, very long-lasting with lace. Strong hoppy aromas, some grains and freshly-cut grass underneath. A crisp, almost neutral malt flavour with strong bitterness balanced against it, resiny and citrusy hop flavours. American profile for sure, but not overwhelmingly grapefruity. It reminded me of Bells Third Coast Beer.
