3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Odd Side. So this brewery is winning me over in leaps and bounds. This beer was a golden color with a decent head and aromas of mostly citrusy hops and a little honey. I guess I could pick out pepper if I tried really hard, but it might have been no more than the power of suggestion. Flavor is more of the light and airy pale ale that borders on IPA with the amount of hops... kind of a grassy and lemony flavor to them. Again, pepper is faint to non-existent, but this is a pretty good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Odd Side brewpub. Murky amber with a thin off white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of pepper, herbs, sage, mild malt and spice. Taste of black pepper, mild hops, malt and spice. Body is over-carbonated and the pepper on the finish is a tad too much.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap; pour is murky light gold with a fine bubbled white head that retains fairly well. It must be said that the peppercorn note is highly prevalent on the nose, which was unexpected. Citrus and pine are there as well. The flavor profile is heavily infused with pepper corn (its offputting in my book), apple skins, lemon zest, and pine.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at MBGWF11. Poured hazy amber color with an average fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate spice hot aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth balanced pepper flavor with a medium sweet & pepper finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with and odd side beer.
