3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy amber with a nice off-white head that doesn’t last. The aroma is subtle and pleasant hops with a nice malt backbone. The flavor is a nice crisp bready malt with an almost juicy character from the subdued but noticeable hops. Easy drinking without resorting to being watery.

I really did like this beer. Could be a bit stronger, but definitely worth a try....

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A half-decent pale ale. Woody notes, some nice hoppiness, but it really could be a little stronger.

Not real ale’s best, but not bad either. The hops come out and hit you a little hard.

There is nothing bad about this beer at all. It isnt Real Ale’s finest, but good nonetheless. Very crisp and smooth. Hops transition is smooth as well. This is probably the first time that Saaz hops have entered the state of Texas before being put into beer....thanks Real Ale!!!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy light amber. Tons of fat bubbles rising. Solid but small head. Caramel aroma with some spice. Crisp mouthfeel at first with a solid pale malt backbone of grass, hay and toast. Mildly spicy hops. Not overly flavorful but has a good body with some depth.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I truly enjoyed this beer. Very good aroma, and beautiful head with a clear amber color. Sweet, slightly malty, hoppy flavor. With a nice hop finish. It is a bit hopped for a pale ale, but I found it very refreshing. Gonna have to try some other beers with Saaz hops.

My least favorite of this brewery’s beers. Oily in the bad way. Hops are too obvious.

Nice hoppy taste, color’s rather cloudy though and has a slight rubbing alcohol aftertaste.

Decent pale ale. Leans towards hoppy side of the equation.
