3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a small fizzy white head. It smells just lightly hoppy with some light floral notes over a slightly sweet caramel malt base. The flavor is a bit thin and weak, minimal leafy hops, light bitterness, fairly thin caramel malt base. Not quite the malt bill that does it for me, it comes across as a bit sweet, with a slightly husky note towards the finish. Lighter bodied but still a bit clingy on the finish with fizzy carbonation. Overall, a little bland and thin, even for an APA.

Crisp and refreshing. Pleasant hop aroma and dry bitterness. Almost a pilsner-like quality to this one.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
