3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber pour with a thin tan head. The nose is really soft and lovely. Fresh and fairly fruity. A little bit of light citrus. Pale malt and a nice balanced citrus character. A bit of spice mixed in with the tropical fruit character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Brian! Poured a clear butterscotch with a near white head that dissipated completely. Aroma was a combination of pine and grain that was slightly sweet. Flavor had a bit more of a citrus note that was joined by pine and sweet grain for a nice beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel malt, and light fruits. Flavor of caramel malt and fruits, bready malt, with a sweet finish. An ok pale ale, certainly drinkable.

Bottle. Caramelly and piney hop aroma. Clear orange amber colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour is a bit like the aroma, but more teaish.

12oz bottle. Purchased while travelling. Very tasty brew for this style. Great session beer. Good caramel taste with just enough hops and bitterness to complete the picture.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark amber appearance, cidery looking, not much to the head or lacing. Nose is classic pine tar and grapefruit. Palate is similar, a touch watery, but nice balance of hoppiness and malt. Mouthfeel is sticky, with a bit of toffee in the taste too. Good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at KClingers. Copper with a thin tip, this seems like a standard American pale ale, crisp with a little appley hoppiness. Good. (#3908, 5/21/2010)
