4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A huge billowy head of foam sitting on a medium golden brew, there’s lots of nice lacing.
I get a flowery type of hop aroma backed up by some grain and a bit of sweet malt.
The taste is gracefully balanced with notes of caramel and grainy malt and a flowery hop flavour. A light presence of earth shows up after a few sips in. Dang, this is good.
On the light side of medium bodied with a bit too much carbonation for my liking else the mouthfeel
would be great.
This is one heck of a good session ale at 4.5% abv! Highly recommended.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a large frothy off-white head that had excellent retention. The nose is lightly fruity with a touch of caramel malt and a ligt floral hoppiness. Very clean and simple. The flavor is very simple as well, just a light thin caramel malt base with a ligt floral hoppiness and minimal bitterness. Overall a little thin and watery, but I suppose that’s what they are trying to achieve. Light bodied and very easy drinking, this one won’t be hard to gulp down. Another winner from Notch, wish I could get these guys locally.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light golden brown with a lot of carbonation leaving a big bubbly head that dissipated to a slight small blanket across the top. Toasty malts balanced with lighter caramel malts. Earth and fruity citrus hop nose. Crisp and light body with a large toasted caramel flavor. Citrus hops are up front but get fruitier and then finish with an earth and malt tang. Goes down smooth with a lot of flavor packed into such a light body.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pale ale that has " generic pale ale" written all over it: pine cones, malt extract and yeast. Hops, slight booze and cardboard by swallow. Meh.
