4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can courtesy of Matt7215, thanks man! Deep orange/amber pour with a two finger froth of eggshell foam. Good structured lace leaves line after line of rings. This pale shows fresh pine and citric hops in the nose, with bread crust and caramel, followed by cotton candy. The taste is great. It is quite hop forward, with sharp piney hops, with citrus rind, that leads into an earthy caramel malt., and finishes with a candy like sweetness that is only balanced with the northern brewer. This beer suffers from extreme balance, and is damn fine! Excellent craftsmanship. Thanks for the can and the opportunity to try this Matt!

Canned beer can get no better! Pours a nice copper color. A nice head dissipates to fine lace around the top of the beer. The hoppy taste is just right! A good session beer!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish orange color with a medium sized off white head. Nose is fruity, toasted malt, and floral hops. Taste is mild and of biscuits with a very bitter finish. Pretty good APA remindes me of Alpha Kappa. HOwever the nose and taste seems to fade as it is exposed to air which is odd.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can picked up at Woodman’s in Madison. Pours a honey golden with a big foamy off-white head that sticks around. Nice lacing. Sweet, potent hops aroma with floral hints. Flavor is grassy, floral and pleasantly sweet that becomes strongly bitter and finishes dry. Full bodied, creamy with a nice lingering bitterness. Excellent!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty good, best beer I have ever had out of a can. Nice balance of hops and some malt. Lingering bitter finish. Piney hop taste typical of APAs. Doesn’t really stand out though, and not the smoothest or most drinkable beer.

Can. Pours a clear copper color with a medium frothy off white head. The aroma is very hoppy and pine. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a also a strong hop and light malt finish. Just like the description big brew in a little can. A great American Pale Ale from Oskar Blues.
