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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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.

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.
