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.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Citric and floral hoppy aroma with some light grassy notes. The flavor has citric and floral hops, light sweet malts, and medium bitterness. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, it’s just your typical malty hopless pale ale with a dry bittering finish. Falls into the sea of mediocracy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of - I think - ImperialJohn. Quite a hazy orange-deep amber pour, huge lasting fizzy white head. Only modestly hoppy aroma (more light resin and some dry herbalness) - lush cereal grain though, very nice (7+). Taste is pretty meh - less grain, some alcohol, a bit of metal .... ehh. Farly thick, somewhat undercarbonated, a little harsh in the finish - half decent, would have it on draught.

Pale orange pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, a bit spicy. Clean finish with some nice citrus hop notes. Good bite. Nice beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Seems more English than American Pale Ale, with a lot of malt piling up on top of a piney, mildly citric finish. The malts are grainy and pretty nice, but more hops are needed on the finish to tighten up the brew. (2/08)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a clear medium amber hue with a white head, good retention and good lace. Aroma had a typical caramel malt note and some hops. Flavor was nicely balanced and the finish was really smooth. Carbonation was just right. A great session ale.
