3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl oz bottle. From a trade with deyholla. Cheers!
Cloudy deep golden colour with a small white head.
Mild sweet aroma with some cookie, fruit and malty notes.
The flavour is much drier. Strong hoppy bitterness and some malty sweetness. There’s something in the hop profile that I’m not huge fan of. But certainly drinkable and even enjoyable APA.

Bottles. Hazy amber color with lasting white sheen. Fruity, yeasty, pale malt, floral aromas. Smooth medium body. Nice floral, earthy bitter hop flavors with pale maltage, and a light fruit sweetness--lightly bitter finish----tasty pale.

Not sure why this beer has such low ratings, seriously solid session beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Phil. Thanks! Orange pour with a white head. Nice fruity hop aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and passion fruit. A bit of lemon zest, apricot, and bread. The flavor is surprisingly muted and muddled, particularly compared to the aroma. Bitter hops, some grapefruit and pineapple, lemon peel, and grass. Subtle tropical notes.

Deep golden color with a lasting but small off white head. Grassy hop nose with some floral notes. Lots of bitter hops with some tropical fruit, grass and raw hop pellet bitterness and some bready malt backbone. Long bitter hop finish.

12 oz bottle at C&G with everyone. Pours lighter orange. Aroma of beautiful mosaic hop. Taste is balanced hoppy smooth and great. Finish is shorter and nice. Great session beer

Nice brassy orange color with some suspension and off-white, orange tinted foam. Very floral hop aroma. Flavor is very dry, nearly no sweetness. A bit of toasty bitterness comes through, but I would dare say this more resembles and English style pale. Finishes quick with just a slight twang. Solid for the style.

Golden color with nice off white head. The beer is politely hop forward. I don’t see a bottled date, but my guess is this bottle is extremely fresh. This is a very good beer. Very refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours golden liquid with minimal head; decent lace. Smells glorious: fruity, citrusy hops; dried fruit; pine.
Quite dry start to finish. Cleanly hoppy on the palate, lacks malted grain, holds some similarities to a well-made pilsner. But where did all those fruity hops go?! :(
The amount of body & carb is spot on. Good, yet lacks greatness which could be achieved by throwing in some juicy Citra hops. My first non-sour Prairie, and it again shows these guys can brew.

355mL thanks to deyholla! Clearer dark orange pour with medium creamy foam. Great lacing. Nose is gamey melon, soap, hints of metal. Taste is dry, soapy, drained, grassy, lemongrass bitters. Mild butterscotch body. A bit disappointing. Similar strange hop character as the Prairie Standard.
