weak and aromaless, but it does the trick if you want an quaffable innoffensive utterly forgetable beer

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
7/19/12. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Plain aroma and flavor with sulphur, caramel, a little chocolate, earthy hops, and black tea. Ugh. Why did I buy this?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale orange pour with minimal head and lace. Aroma of malt hops yeast grass and citrus. And clove? Unique smell for a pale. Taste is clove spice malt grapefruit banana. A creaminess instantly hits the tongue. Light and thin body and the alcohol is masked well in this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from variety pack bought in Congers. Drank during Easter from lager glass. Pours dark gold with white head. Aroma is faint and not really distinguishable. Palate is noticeably lacking in terms of hop profile or malt flavor. Just kind of grainy and gritty - not the bright hoppy sort of pale ale I was hoping for. Maybe my standards for this style are too high after some recent samples from other brewers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper body, white head. Aroma of toasty malt and light caramel. Cookie flavour, bit grassy hops. Very clear taste with some fruity notes, but very very dull pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, best before 1/12) Pours slightly cloudy orange-amber. Three fingers of rocky, lightly-amberish off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops over caramel and vanilla. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, medium-thin. Flavor of citrusy hops with caramel, vanilla, light bread and a bit of egginess. Medium-light bitterness overlays and provides a pinch in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The same golden color that most pale ales are. Filtered and clear. White foam. Smells like an old root cellar. Organic and malty. Bland, tart, and grassy, and malty. A very malty and pure beer.
