3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy honey color. Very large off white frothy head. Nice retention. Mild aroma is unique, maybe a sweet grain. Some lacing. Flavor is also grainy. A little bitter in the finish, but overall not much aftertaste. This was a little unusual, but not bad

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not a whole lotta there here. It pours to a full head with very nice lacing. But there is barely any aroma. I mean, I’m sticking my nose in the glass to the point of getting foam on it and getting next to nothing--certainly not the semi-blast of hops expected from a pale ale. With minimal aroma there is, no surprise, little discernible taste. A hint of bitterness at best. The texture is grainy, most likely that way from very active carbonation. As a loyal Wisconsin beer drinker, I hate to speak poorly of a hometown product, but this is disappointing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of citrus hops and caramel malts. Flavor is sweet with the citrus hops and caramel malts. Kind of a soapy flavor on the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light gold pour, slightly hazy, with a white head. Fairly light aroma of citrus hops and biscuit. Lighter carbonated palate, but fine for the style. Taste is citrus hop with little in the way of malt backing. Not bad, but not terribly great either. Interesting, though - this actually gets slightly better as it warms just a bit from fridge temperature.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Bottle] Pours a darker shade of gold with a nice cap of white foamy head. Nose is of floral hops, perfume and light grass/citrus. Overall, not a particularly strong aroma to it. Tastes of biscuits, skunky hops, grains and tart citrus notes. More bitterness comes out in the finish, which is nice. Lighter in body than I expected. Not too bad, but nothing really stands out here either.

hazy yellow gold, dinky white head, some lace. nose of malt, grass, hint of a hop presence. flavor is malt, sweet grain, light bitter hop. medium bodied, lightly bitter finish. not bad, but not a bell ringer. i prefer a richer, more bitter mixture.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, fruity. Flavor is fruity, malty, some bread complete with butter. No hop presence. Could be an old bottle, but with no dating on the bottle who knows.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a slightly hazy light amber. The aroma is nicely hoppy with a bit of citrus. The taste is much the same but with a bit more malt showing through. Pretty basic, but certainly not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
My first rating for this brewer. 12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin linen white head that lasted through the first two sips and left scant lace. Weak aroma of grainy malt with a few light notes of orange. The flavor is similar with weak grainy malt and just a hint of orange. The bitterness at the finish is a bit harsh. Probably not something I would look to drink with any regularity.
