2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a cloudy golden color, significant off-white head. Aroma was slightly hoppy, some citrus notes. Flavor was mediocre, it was somewhat hoppy but not enough for me. Quite a bit of malt flavor, which seemed unbalanced for an APA. Not terrible, but I wouldn’t try it again.

355ml bottle. Hazed amber pour. Smell is pure malt and oxidized, the beer is old. Purchased at Binny’s Lincoln Park. They strike again with another out of date beer in the mix six. Clean it up vav. Flavor is basic, slightly pickly, no hops, just stale malt.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 10-28-2010. This bottled beer has a small fizzy white head with a short retention, hazy yellow golden body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The is caramel malt, grain, citrus, and pine hops. The taste is semi-sweet, caramel malt, grainy, citrus and pine hops. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is easy drinking but does not enjoy a lot of character and not a beer I will drink again.

12 oz bottle. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Clear orange golden colour with a small white head.
The aroma is very sweet with some mild hops and lots of caramel maltiness. The flavour is also sweet. There’s some bitterness, mild resiny hops and sweet maltiness. Very sweet APA.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear copper color brew with off white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, barely detectable caramel malt. Taste is light malt at the very start then hops kick in, lemon citrus, a bit tart and dry in the finish. Solidly hoppy though the lemon overtone is a bit different. A little spice and tart fruit in the very finish. I think this is a solid APA, better than most.
