3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured golden with a white head. Floral, hoppy nose, sort of subdued, with a candy sweetness. A well balanced pale. Mild bitterness with just enough floral hop and citrus flavors to satisfy. Grainy, malt finish with a dry bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber.
Clear golden ale with a small wispy white head, that does however last some tme.
Aroma ,mainlly bready malts with a tinge of hop essense.
Taste bready malts, slightly caramel aspect and some nice balanceing floral hops.
Pretty average on the palate, slightly over carbonated.
Overall very boring as an APA, i think this would better be classed as a Golden ale.
