2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a refrigerated bottle provided by storminorman. Thanks! Pours a slightly fuzzy gold copper color with an enormous head of white bubbly foam. The aroma is sweet and grainy. One might think lager of some sort from the aroma. Taste is oddly bland. Some bitterness works its way into the finish. Not a fan.

Bottle from AJ’s Fine Foods Scottsdale. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much on the nose except a bit of corn oil. No real hop presence on the tongue. finishes clean. Probably one of the worst pale ale’s I’ve ever had.

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Tucson AZ. Pours a cloudy orange amber with a thin white head. Light caramel nose. Flavor is very light and thin but not objectionable. Light carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent enough ale. A little tinny taste in the background. Not hoppy enough for me. Nothing special but not bad either.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Poured a cloudy orange color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate citrus earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would not recommend to a friend to go out of their way to find this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somewhat peculiar. Nice enough mouthfeel, and solid enough maltiness, but I’m picking up a funkiness that seems to linger. Could be infected, but does impart some interesting character to this pale ale, which would otherwise be good if unexceptional. Just not sure I expect or want that in this variety.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft sample at the Wigwam beer fest. Their biggest claim/advertisement for this beer was that it was "unfiltered." Um, not really a big selling point in the world of craft beer. The beer was average across the board.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
malty Aroma, pours fairly clear for being unfiltered. hardly any hop aroma to speak of. Malty up front a little bitter on the back end, what you would expect. Wish the brewery would stop using the same English yeast in most of their beers!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Has the golden haze you’d expect, but it has a queer aroma and a stale, sort of fruity flavor. Not a giant fan of this one, but kind of par for the course for the majority of AZ beers that Stephan brought back with him in Spring, 2013.
