2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had this last night for the 3rd or 4th time expecting to like it, but truth is it’s just sometime about it that I don’t care for. Called a pale ale, but really more of just a bland mix of malts and muted hop notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at brewery. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber body with a small frothy off-white head that settled to a thin film. Nice toasty malt nose with some light floral hops and some slight belgian yeast notes. The flavor quite an odd combo, there’s the maltiness and hops of an English style dark ale up front, then on the finish the Belgian character emerges with some light airy yeastiness and light yeast derived spices. Lighter bodied and airy with lively spritzy carbonation. Lingering Belgian yeast notes. Pretty drinkable and makes for a flavorful session beer (though a touch high in abv for that I suppose). A unique hybrid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy amber-red with a thick white head. Aroma of toasted malt, Belgian yeast, and bready malt. Flavor of bready malt, jam, dry cereal, and burnt malts. Pleasantly surprised by this Belgian pale ale with a malt-focus.
