3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden. Crisp and dry for a pale ale. Bitter and hoppy as expected in the pac west. Med bodied and full throughout. Nice balance, but too dry in the finish for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Bevmo: Appeared as a slightly hazed golden blond color with fat foamy heading that retreats leaving behind nothing. Aroma is minor with only a presence of grassy hops and faint scents of grain. The flavor is organic and tasty earthy but it taste to much like a juiced up pale lager with extra amounts of cheap hops and grain.

Very pale appearance with a white foamy head. Low hop presence, however a strong citrus and fruity flavour. An excellent representation of the golden style. Very refreshing for a warm day. Light bodied and low carbonation allows many to be consumed .
