2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Charleston Beer Works, 12/8/12
Aroma: The nose has lots of sweet malts, some caramel, fruity notes, yeast, and toffee
Appearance: This one pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color, with a foam laced off-white head
Flavor: The taste is pretty sweet, with some fruity notes, and a slightly metallic bitterness
Palate: This beer has a medium body, with a soft carbonation, and a lengthy, off, metallic finish
Overall, this one was not a favorite for me. It is missing any of the wanted citrus or resiny hop bitterness that one might enjoy in this style. Also, it just doesn’t come off clean at all, and the metallic feel takes away from the enjoyment. I didn’t hate it, but it was a mediocre at best example of the style for me.

Pretty watery. Not too bad, but pretty bland overall. Clean with some faint hop character. A standard beer.

Recieved in a trade. Pours a dark gold amber color with a thick white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of dough and light hops. Tastes the same as it smells. Mouthfeel is light and this beer goes down easy. Overall this is an average pale ale, the only thing that stood out was the head and lacing, very mediocre other than that.

A good pale ale. It’s got a raw bread dough taste but that’s okay, I like bread.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours deep golden color full tan head. Nice floral and pine aroma from the cascade hops. Also a touch of citrus. Flavor has a mild caramel sweetness. Medium-light body, good malty feel to go along with the medium bitter finish. Overall a surprising solid ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent pale ale. Taste is a little bland. Good for a summer day when there’s a few to knock down at once.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Medium Amber Color. Foamy white head. Some lacing in the glass. Rich hop aroma, with a touch of grasses and wheat. Flavor was rich in hops and was crisp. Little harsh on the palate with the carbonation, but the rich flavor more than made up for the texture. Not bad at all.
