2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this beer on 7/8/1999, back then the brewery named Hart Brewing and was in Seatlle. Color is medium brown with good carbonation and light head. Aroma is a nice dark roasted malt scent. Taste is a malty and bitter. It starts with a medium body that goes down with rich roasted malt flavor. The finish is a mild bitterness with no noticeable hop flavor. Overall I feel it a nice beer, but its more like a Brown Ale than a Pale Ale.

Poured a nice amber/ruby color with an off white head that starts big then resides to average. The nose was bready, malty and piney with a hint of orange zest. The taste was sweet caramel, roasted malt, rye and cherry with citrusy hop esters at the finish. Very good. Tasty as hell.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep redish amber color; little head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, a bit citrusy, and a hint of malt. Flavor is primarily malt, with some matching bitterness. Fruit is more grapefruit than other. More like a hoppy amber than a standard American pale. Good carbonation. Swishing makes it chewy/creamy. The finish is grapefruit bitter. Took a while to get there. Very drinkable.
