2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has a dark golden colour. Again quite a plain, watery taste. Not unpleasant, just lacking in flavour. This has a slightly warming malty finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ brewpub. Golden pour with a white head. Minimal bitterness snd no pine with off aromas. Taste is slightly bitter with odd, flat malt flavors. Clean mouthfeel. There’s a lot not working with this beer.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Tasted fresh. Faint aromas of fresh hops. Palate is better. MILD fresh hop flavors of citrus, resinous herbs and florals. Mild malt presence. Good mouthfeel and smooth, creamy carbonation. MILD flavors of hop buds linger for a moment on the the palate. Tastes like a mild home brew (in a positive way). Overall, a decent, light micro-brew, no harsh complaints... Simple, mild, light, balanced, and refreshing...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange pour with a small white head. Not a very good pale ale. Grass, chalk, and a bit of pine. Some vegetal notes, a little bit of earth, and a bready malt sweetness. The flavor is somewhat bitter and astringent with a strong chalk character. Some pine, earth, grass, and cooked vegetable flavors. Mild malt sweetness, water, and perhaps a touch of caramel.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brewery. Hazy amber. Crystal malt, iced tea, and fruity aroma. Some grassy and bitter hops in the flavor but no hop aroma. finishes bitter. Odd overall and not very good.
