4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pfriem’s Mosaic single hop pale pours a beautiful bright golden. I never realized how funky Mosaic hops are until having this beer. Earthy orange aroma with zesty citrus sitting on top of a warm garbage can. Taste and body are incredibly perfect. Juicy citrus hops give off bursts of mint relaying a crisp reshingly tart finish that leaves you wanting more, and more.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tan to beige coloring with a nice cream, off-white top. Catty nose with hair on it. Very catty throughout the body. Green bitterness, but at the same time, a freshness to it. Just not to my liking.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Bambino’s. Pours bright medium golden with thin heavily lacey white head. Aroma is thin oaky pale malt, with floral lightly fruity hops. Taste is clean crisp light caramel malt, with juicy floral citrusy hops. Tangy hops linger on the finish. Amazingly flavorful for a pale. This would be an IPA in most parts of the world, but here a mere pale. Awesome. Another winner from Pfriem.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mighty fine hop treat. Light body and malt which might lean towards pale ale but the hoppiness and alcohol content are IPA all the way. Delicious tropical fruit hops, almost bubble gum like. Subtle sweetness. Awesomely drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at 16 Tons, Eugene. Pours a medium golden color, little bit of head. Aroma is strong, and frankly awful. Smells like stale urine and weed. Body is lively and light on the tongue, finish is nice and citrusy, but really hard to get over the aroma.
