Draft. From notes. Herbal and citrus hops with bready and caramel malts. Not too shabby.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2 oz. pour, on tap at the breweryís taproom, as part of an 8-beer flight. Consumed on 5-14-14. Nice, floral, piney aroma features lemon, citrus, and grapefruit scents. Quite enjoyable smell. Pours gold, on the pale side. Light effervescence. Beige head. Produces good, extensive lacing. Nice, light, piney flavor features citrus and orange elements. Surprisingly good malt backbone, especially for the style. Subtle flavors. Light to medium body. Soft in the palate. Overall, a darn good pale ale, and, in my opinion, an underrated one by the ratings on this site.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear(until poured the rest of the bottle) turning opaque, orange amber. Small soapy white head. Updated recipe or maybe a bit of an old bottle? Aroma has a good amount of breadiness, light citrus/orange, lemon, light grass, a little something dank. The more I smelled it the more I didnít like it. Flavor is light bready, grass, flowers, light citrus/lemon. Flavor improved about halfway through for me. Higher end of light body. Moderate grassy eqrthy bitterness. Light sweet. Mild dryness. Crisp. Not that easy drinking.. Not offensive but not that interesting. Ok.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A white head sits atop a rich yellow glowing body. A subtle but fresh hoppy aroma can be noticed from across the table. The flavor is mildly hoppy and unlike so many pale ales out there, this ones got a light maltiness backing up the hops but not so much that itís filling. Like rings on a tree, the rings of lace left inside my glass tell me how many sips it took me to get to the bottom

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Sonoma Cellars in Delevan. Pours a light amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is bready, fruity, some pine hops. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is malty, bread, a little nutty, fruity, a touch of citrus, some pine bitterness, with a light, bitter finish. An ok pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fresh from beer fridge at the lake. Pours a pale yellow with minimal head. Somewhat 'off' smell and initial taste...definitely not in the upper tiers of pale ales.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery. Clear pale pour with a spotty white head. Citrus and grapefruit elements, decent body, plenty of malt, and a bit sticky. Not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Off golden pour tiny white head quickly dissipates. well hopped aroma grapefruit and grass some light caramel. Palate is a bit too thin. Front of the flavor is a bit blah but I enjoyed the piney grapefruity finish that lingers the front is a bit astringent. Nothing special but easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short, sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet pale and bready malts topped by bright grass and herbal hoppage.. nothing really great here, but what was in there worked well together. The flavor found sweet pale and caramel malts at the core, with prickly carbonation and bitter herbal notes around.. finished quick with a black peppery kicker.. got messy and less pleasant right at the end. Lighter-bodied with sharp carbonation and a fair amount of bitterness on the palate.. didnít flow fast enough through the mouth and became hard to drink. Overall OK.
