2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Dirty Orange in color, slight haze, moderate fizzy off-white head, falls quickly, sparce lacing.   Nose isn’t all that
pleasing.   Mainly sulfer like notes, band-aided malts, cardboarded hops.   When I think Pale I think IPA Light.   This doesn’t
appear to be so.   Very minor citrus like bitterness on the tongue.   Hop presense is minor, if at all present.   Has a funk to
it, slightly sulfuric.   Quite mealy on the tongue.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate (average).   Lackluster finish.   Just
doesn’t seem like that much of a Pale Ale to me.   Blech... not crisp enough for my tastes.   Pales should be clean and fairly
crisp, to which this is neither.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma simple hop and malt. Taste is strong on hops, some malt (caramel) and earthy notes. It is full bodied an pleasing on the tongue, but not distinctive beyond the hops.

Bottle from BlackForestCO. Clear orange color with the aroma of light hops and that same weird funky peat, mildew aroma. Tne taste was lightly malty with a nice hop profile. Some citrus fruitiness in the finish. Not a bad brew. Thanks, Jake.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer pours a brilliant copper color with a fair amount of white head which quickly fades to a fine scum. Aroma is of some hops, some candy sugar, and more malt than I expected. Flavor is very malty and sour up front (like a not very heavily hopped barley-wine, but lighter) with some hops becoming present afterwards. Mouthfeel is thin. I’m not a fan of this.

Bottle at "Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival 2007". Cloudy amber - yellow head. Weak body. Light hoppy. Caramel, sweetness, a bit boring. Maltyness, fruityness. - Well just boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Tap) Pours a red/amber color with a small beige head. Decent hop aroma and even hopped taste. Balanced, and slightly malty. Nice body and mouthfeel. A very good pale ale, and a great session beer.
