3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mostly clear, medium tan-bronze beer with a small white head. Standard US longneck, decent label. Sweetish grain-malty aroma, a little honey and a little husky. Aroma profile comes through in the flavor, slightly astringent especially when really cold. Moderately to slightly heavily bittered. Some woody and vanilla tones, especially in the finish and aftertaste. Medium body. Overall, a fair pint but nothing outlandish. Lazy Dog Growler, Warner Robins.

Not a bad attempt but falls flat in comparison with the great pale ales out there. Low on bitterness, rounded fruity character, a bit watery.

Honey malt. Bitterness in the finish but more of a malt focus. Would be great for bratwursts.

Cask sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a slightly hazy golden brown with minimal white head. Aroma of light pale malts and grassy floral hops. Taste follows, light and easy, kind of more of an English pale ale than an American. Not bad, but nothing great.

Warner Robins, Ga - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium copper pour, tight, snow white head that sticks around a while. Aroma has some yeasty accents, a touch of pear-like fruitiness. Nice light bitterness with a light citrus touch, some honey sweetness, a bit of cake mix sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice textured feel to it. Pretty solid.

Syrupy, sherry-like American caramel malt with limp spinach leaf and compost pile hop rawness and faint hints of pine and citrus. Medium body, low carbonation, acidic but still flabby. Bottle. Slightly oxidized.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Grassy hops and bready malts make for a very traditional "beer" aroma. This smells much more like a pilsner than a pale ale. It’s entirely possible that the only difference is the yeast that was used. It’s a nice, clear golden-brown color. The taste is very clean and crisp, with a slightly bubble-gummy flavor to start, balanced by grassy hops and a certain pilsner crispness throughout. My issue with this beer isn’t necessarily the flavor, but the identification as an American pale ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared with Linh. Pours a clear golden copper body with no head and thin white lacing. Aroma is plain malt. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of sweet malt, breads and vague hop. No good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, dark, copper color, with a small, bubbly, cream-colored head. The aroma is butter toffee, resinous hops, and a little maple syrup. The flavor is very sweet, lightly bitter, and pretty spicy. Medium body, sticky, metallic, and thick. Overall, this is a very sweet, malty pale ale. Not as hoppy and bitter as most would expect, but a nice, interesting, and delicious beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brassy gold in the glass- thin head, no lacing. Aroma is sweat, breast malt with a very fain lemony note. Flavor is very subdued for the style- strong malty backbone gives way gradually to some peppery hops and a grassy finish. More akin to an English than an APA, and better for it, IMO. Refreshing.
