2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beer lacks a bit of aroma hops that I like in this particuar style so it rates kind of low there. And, as Pale Ale’s go, it’s definately a "beginners" model. It’s not as hoppy as a traditional Pale Ale which I believe will make it more broadly accepted among the "light lager" crowd. I agree with BeerBelcher, it’s similar to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but to me nowhere near as hoppy. And hey, I enjoyed this beer "On Site".

Small offwhite head. Clear coppery body. Fruity toffee aroma with grassy notes. Dryish toffee and plastic taste with fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish fruity resiny aftertaste with plastic notes. It’s kind of OK. Probably would be far better fresh. (0.355l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

Gylden brun klar med fingerhøyt hvitt skum. Lukter fersken, røde frukter og noe fudgekaramell. Lett. Fruktig sødme mot sydhavsfrukt med lett kort bitterhet i avslutningen.

Bottle. It poured a pale gold color with one finger of a frothy white head. The aroma was citrus and the flavor included grapefruit. The bitterness was mild.

Lots of grassy aroma. Light yellow color with white head. Taste is more grass, bitter citrus. Some cereal grain flavor. Man this unbalanced toward the bitter side. Palate seems about right for a pale ale.

A- Fresh cut grass, floral.
A- Yellow color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Grass, slightly bitter, pine, flowers.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation,
O- This smelled like I just mowed my front lawn. Usually I hate that smell but for some reason I didn’t mind it here. Really grassy and flower throughout. Fairly light for a pale ale.

Crisp. Not much of a hoppy flavor or a malty flavor. Kind of a bland flavor.

Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and a short ring of irregular lacing is left.
3.25 S: Not a lot going on in this, but it’s still pleasant. Floral and lightly citrusy hops. Mild neutral malt sweetness. Clean.
3.25 T: Taste is pretty much the same as the nose. Not a lot to say. Neutral malt, mild bitterness, and lightly floral and citrusy hop flavor.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess.
3.0 D: Pretty much average all around. Not bad, just average.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle for 25 cents from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits in downtown Muscatine. Dark orange and clear appearance with a small off-white head. Aroma of grass, pine, light soap, herbal hops, toasted grains and floral notes. Similar flavor, adding some citrus zest and a mild to moderate spicy hop bitterness. Average body with a light dry finish. Decent pale ale overall.
