2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper colour with orange highlights and an off-white head. Nice aroma of hops, malt and even some nutmeg. Medium-bodied; Strong medicinal taste initially, followed by some malt and stale hops. Aftertaste has more astringent taste and a sort of hoppy ending. Overall, a good beer...needs some work though! I owe a large thanks to Mabdoney for this one...cheers Matt! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle on 02-November-2003.

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 doesnít come off clean at all, and the metallic feel takes away from the enjoyment. I didnít hate it, but it was a mediocre at best example of the style for me.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, dough and cereal, and pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent pale ale, but not the best.

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

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
2004 bottle @ the gathering. Deep yellow-gold, mostly clear, small white head. Aroma of metal, hay, floral hops, sour yeast. Flavor is metallic and hoppy, very flowery and bitter, with no malt to speak of and then a watery death for the finish. Medium-light body, over-carbonated. Canít find much use in drinking this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle at Jim & Nickís Bar-B-Q in Charleston, SC. Huge lasting fine-bubbled tan head atop a nice rustic amber body....very spicy, hoppy aroma with orange-peel, lemon juice and lots of dried pine needles for a vital aromatic experience....smooth, clean, fairly sweet front with touches of molasses and lightly toasted malts....rather dry and bitter finish, somewhat watery and a bit too thin, nevertheless a reasonably solid, respectable pale ale.
