3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Pratt. Pours a clear amber with a thin to medium sized white head. Sweet malt, light catty notes like the IPA had, and like the IPA not bad or distracting. Toast, very easy drinking. Sweet, dark fruit notes, malt, toast, chewy malt, long bitterness, very smooth. Nice.

Not to bad, this is a pretty basic beer pouring a golden amber, nice hop flavor with no alcohol taste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden color. Light floral/pine aroma. Average, not much there.
Taste is pale and crystal malts with a small hops bitterness towards the finish. Usual flavors for an English style Pale. Malty, medium body. Slightly gainy yet smooth drinkability. Finish lingers around a bit. Not quite as good as the other beer I sampled at Pratt Street, 3 Spires.

Nice english style pale ale. Very smooth and easy drinking. I like it because these type beers tend to be lower in alcohol. Not this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Pizzeria Paradiso...on cask and dry hopped with citra hops. Pours a golden color with white head, slightly less than room temp. The aroma explodes out of the glass, with floral and citrus notes, very appealing. The taste is much as it smells, with the citrus and floral notes prevailing. There is a spiciness too, that I cannot pinpoint, but it gives this beer some depth. Malts are mostly in the background, as expected. Body is medium with average carbonation. Overall, this is an aromatic wonderland that is very drinkable. Glad to have tried it.
