22 oz bottle thanks to my lovely wife for bringing this home in her luggage. Amber in color with an average off-white head. Aroma is of grass, caramel and herbs. Taste is of grass, slightly watery, caramel.

In short: An amateurish golden ale that marred by an old past due-date orange juice flavor..
How: Tap at brewpub.
The look: Clear golden blond body topped by a persistent small white head.
In long: Nose has a discreet fruitiness that feels more like yeasty fruity esters than fruity hops. Taste is tangerines, orange flesh, corn-ish cereals, a bit of caramel, shy hopping with a light spiciness . Just like with their Coqui Lager this so-called Pale Ale had way too much of an old past due-date orange juice flavor with the awkward acidity. Light body and with a soda-pop carbonation. Another lame beer from Old Harbor. Not only is it lame but Iím not even sure this could qualify has an Pale Ale even if it wasnít problematic. The more I was drinking the creations of the Old Harbor brewer I found myself less and less impress by Bin Ladenís accomplishments.

Bottle shared by Jared, muddy golden color with s bit of head. Has some citrus with some skunky aroma. Taste is similar, a bit bland and quite bubbly on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The palate is very light here. Hops just plain bitterness with prominent barley malt they seem to use for several beers here. Pours golden with average carbonation, medium consistency. On tap at brewpub.

Draft with Erica at the airport in San Juan. This was very nondescript and I donít have a lot of notes aside from that it was okay and "kind of boozy." I did record my ratings for each category, though.

kramer (5357) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that fell to a thin partial covering. The nose is minimally hoppy with some husky malt and a little caramel. The flavor is a little lacking in the hops department as well. Not overly sweet, but rather husky and grainy with a bit of crystal malt on the finish. Minimal bitterness on the finish. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the worst of the bunch from Old Harbor, but not the best either.

Pours a light amber color with a minimal head. Flavors and aromas of citrus and caramel. Moderately bitter. Pretty light mouthfeel. An average APA but at least itís good to see that Puerto Rico can make some decent beer.

Smells faintly of hops. Nothing special about the appearance, medium body, fair carbonation. Balanced, not bad.
