3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel - fruitiness and light piney and hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel - fruitiness, light piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lsweetish, some caramel and frutiness with light piney - citrus hoppyness. OK fruity APA - but too sweet and too much caramel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a lot of suds on top of this pour. Smell is faintly hoppy/fruity. It’s a nice medium amber in color. Flavor is a nice balance of nutty, hoppy, fruity. Some aftertaste. A very pleasant, well balanced ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber, slightly hazy, not much head. Balance is towards the malt with lots of nutshell flavor - even slightly creamy feeling. Hops are there, but mainly through the finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a solid copper and amber color with foamy beige head. Aroma is mostly nutty caramel malt with a bit of citrus and earthy hops. The taste is slightly bready and malty with some caramel and honey sweetness toward the end. Just a tiny bit of citrus and bitterness in the background. Fairly straightforward Pale Ale that doesn’t have a ton of flavor but goes down smooth.
