3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chill hazed amber body with a small offwhite head. Good lacing. Aroma is earthy hops with a pine and rind edge. Taste features some toasty caramel balancing out the earthy and pine hops. Softer fruits emerge as it warms. Doesn’t seem very English but a solid and easy drinking pale ale here.

On tap. Poured a nice, light copper-orange color with a decent off-white head that left some lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus hops, but there is also a nice pine presence. Nice fruity, slightly resiny flavor to compliment the nose. Good carbonation that is crisp and inviting. Pretty nice beer.

Very pleasant hoppy aroma and flavor. Nice orange color that poured well. Good fruity, dry finish. Enjoyed two of these while watching a movie on my couch.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Steamboat! Hazy amber color, light head. Weak aroma. Nothing too special in taste, a weak hoppy taste, quickly fading. Not too impressed by the overall beer.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 2010-04-10, tasting at Papsř, 6-4-6-4-13=33
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Nice but mild aroma, caramel and fruity hops, a bit earthy. Simple but reasonable caramel flavor, with residual sweetness, sweet nuts, correct bitterness.

Hazy light amber color. Some malt and hop aroma, maybe a bit fruity, and some grass. Simple flavor, with light caramel, dry, some sugar, very light apple peel, quite strong (or correct) bitterness. Too simple.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this beer on 6/28/2005. Aroma is malty with a faint sour hop scent. Color is a deep gold with very good carbonation and a nice tight head. Taste is smooth, hoppy and clean. Starting with a nice medium body it goes down with a smooth and yet slightly crisp feel. Finish comes on with a gentle sweet malt flavor that is backed by an even bitterness. on the end there is a nice hop taste and it leaves you with a smooth feel. At first It didn’t strike me as anything great but its just so smooth and well balanced that I find myself liking it more as I drink it.

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.

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.
