This is now my second favorite pale ale next to headwaters and without a doubt the best beer Iíve ever had out of a 16 oz. can. Itís got a medium body and well balanced malt profile, slightly toward the hoppy side with a pleasant citrus flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16oz can of blah from Spirits Brick. Poured a decent looking thinner bodied orange with a smaller tight foamy white head. Aroma of bad citrus fruit, some floral notes, tea bags, wet bread. Body is bascially all water with some artificial carbonation in the mix. Flavor makes the aroma seem good, old tea leaves, weak bread notes, old citrus fruit, bad rusty bread. Meh, the IPA is worlds better.

Pours an orange amber with a light tan foamy head. Aroma of piney resin and citrus fruit. Mildly malty with a large amount of hop bitterness throughout. Finishes crisp and clean without too much lingering bitterness

Pours a deep gold with an airy pilsner type head which hangs for a bit. Aroma of slight grassiness and malty sugars. Taste is pleasant up front floral notes descending into a taste of graininess to malty bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at TND. Pours a somewhat clear copper, with nice small bubbled medium head. Lacing was ok. Notes are grains, hops with a bite, and a light malt profile. Medium body with a finish that was better then expected...resinous hops and some sweet honey. Overall it was a decent pale ale but hard to drink when fresh alesmith ipa is on.

16oz can from Pinocchioís. Pours a deep amber color with a big white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, cereal, bread, some light, grassy hops, with a light bitter finish. The aroma is better than the taste, but not bad.

16 ounce can
Hiding in the back of the fridge after a week in Pennsylvania I thought this would be a good one to crack open fresh. A solid lawnmower beer is worth drinking once but doesnít make me want to seek out any more of their releases. One is enough for now.
Aroma / Appearance - The bubbly heavy white head and transparent orange base combine well. Grass, oranges, and other aromas make it smell like a fresh cut lawn. The nose is a boozy orange slice.
Flavor / Palate - Light pine, grass, and then a weedy transition to a floral finish refresh the palate. The residual aftertaste hangs for a few minutes but is short lived. In fact it tastes a bit like alcoholic Sprite with a minor tartness.

Draft at Old Forge. Poured golden with thin head and a lot of lacing. Super fresh. Iíve had this before and never as impressed as I was today. Pine, grass resin, and little caramel malt. Tasty

Big Top, Roslyn 160z from variety pack: Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is citrus, resin, pine. Taste is rather hoppy and bitter throughout. There might not be enough malt backbone. Lingering aftertaste. Still, it ainít bad.
