3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold, off-white head. Light aroma, a little hoppy. Strong bitter, more like an IPA than a pale ale. Grapefruit and floral flavor. Bitter finish.

12 oz bottle.
A darker looking pale ale. A little "beefier" - more filling than most pale ales. Not at all watery. I think that the reviewers have been rating this a little low by the look of their scores. This is not a run of the mill pale ale. A nice caramel flavor with euro-pils malts to create a rich amber look. A foamy head with nice lacing. A good looking beer.

Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma smells like a biscuity lager. The taste is biscuit, dry, light grain, almost no hop. This blows, honestly.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a small wispy head. Nose is grainy and somewhat malty. A bitter grainy taste without much in the flavor department. Finish is bitter and ends rather boringly. Quaff Score 6 / 10

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy orange with a white head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is bittersweet, malt, hops, and caramel throughout with a bitter, medium finish. A bit boring and can use more flavor

Pretty decent ale with an extra hoppy flavor. Only got a sip but wish I had more. Very refreshing.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear amber with a thickish head from the beer of the month club. Aroma is a bit roasty. Flavor is mild spices at first, but then the roasted malts hit. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Honey, caramel, graham crackers in the nose. Sweet palate initially, with unusual amount of hops in the back end for this style. Very enjoyable. Appearance is gold and lacing-less.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Solid caramel and starch aroma. Looks orange like any other pale ale. Sweet sort of fruity taste and some metal wire. Fairly bitter contrast, but easy to drink medium body. Not overly impressed so far with this brewer.

Draft at a Pirate game. Funky taste for a pale. Slight hop with a caramel fruit finish. An original taste; I'll give them that much.
