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.

Copper-orange. Nose generically hoppy, flavor similarly so, a not particularly pleasant lightly sweet and astringent finish.

pours copper with a decent sized white head, aroma was mostly malt, the taste was malt and carbonation, yet this beer is better than most macro brewed, its far from being great.

Overall it works, its has a medium body with decent malty flavors and a overall presence of pine hops. its for a casual drink.

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.

12 oz bottle. (The Greenville Beer Exchange) Greenville, SC.
Hazy mid-brown colour with a small off-white head.
Sweet fruity hops and strong sweetish malt in the aroma.
The flavour is sweet floral and fruit tea like hops, mild butterness and strong maltiness. A malty APA.

The aroma is hoppy but in a metallic way. There is also some lightly roasted caramel malt. The appearance is deep amber with a smaller head. The flavor is like the aroma and astringently bitter so it’s not great. The palate is smooth. Overall I think it’s drinkable but thats all.

Golden pour. Sort of fruity aroma. Kind of blah flavor. Some hops, some fruit, some cereal grains. Basically an average, unspectacular pale.

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)
