3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I found the head to be nice but disappears very quickly. It was only a mild bitterness and I think it could have been stronger for my liking. It was a very bright copper body. I also found the texture a little thin.
If it find of funny but I grew up in Wausau, WI and that is about 30 minutes from Stevenís Point. Point beer was find of the joke of the beers then. But I young and not much of a drinker at the time.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle acquired in trade with brewblackhole (thanks!). Poured a lighter and clear orange / amber color with a larger sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, caramel, and lightly floral. Tastes of caramel, toasted malts, and citrus. Thinner body.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright, light copper/amber body, with a very thin, almost completely disappearing head. No lacing. Majority of the aroma was malt, but there were some citrus notes in the background. Quite balanced flavor profile; too bad, because I would have liked more hops. There is a nice, mild bitterness in the aftertaste, though. The more sips I had of this beer, the better it got; however, it definitely peaked at a (3.3).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle was part of a variety pack purchased. The others in the sampler were crap, but this pale ale was very good. Poured with a nice head that disappeared rather quickly. Nice hoppy aroma. Tasting presented a crisp start with lively carbination.With a light body, a thin mouth feel was inevitable. An excellent finish, in my opinion. Just the right bitterness was present. Overall, a decent American Pale Ale, and the only beer from this brewery that is drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-ounce brown bottle poured a dense dark amber color with a slight white head. Both hops and caramel malt in the aroma. Light-to-medium body. A bit thin on the mouthfeel but OKAY. Hoppy flavor with underlying maltiness. A bit "contrasty" between the hops and the malt but over time they go down together OKAY. Hop bitterness lingers into the finish. Carbonation becomes noticable after a while. The components are all ther but the synergy isnít. Maybe too one-dimentional.

Not the best pale ale I have sampled, i though it was watered down for the most part, in comparison, with say, the Summit EPA. Would be a good Ale for those who arent fans of supper hoppy, bitter ones...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber hued golden, with a froth of off-white. Delicate aroma of west coast hop tinged malt sugars. Flavor is a somewhat thin-bodied sweet hop sugars, gentle and wafting. The sweet orange cream Cascades meld with light malts. The body doesnít really bother me, as itís perfect for drinking and not particularly watery. Not distractingly thin. There are some cheap corn fusels and distant off-notes that hold this one back. But, the nice long parching hop smack, in apple, provides balance. For the price and for sessions, a good choice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is light citrusy with a touch of bready caramel malt notes. Color is a clear amber with a thin white head. Flavor is on the light side. The malt is thin and grainy and there is a touch of citrusy hop flavor in the finish. The grassy-grainy flavor isnít super pleasent to me. Texture and body is light with medium high carbonation. Thanks Jeff, for the bottle. I can see what you mean by almost skunked. I think that is a combination of the citrusy-grapefruit and the grassy flavor.
