2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I have no idea who Dan Patrick is or why he was involved w/ the making of this beer. I will refrain from looking him up until after my review so as not to be biased. This beer pours a clear orange golden color and mostly headless. It has a subtle hoppy nose which almost seems a bit Pilsener-like w/ lots of floral notes--though it smells a bit to caramelly for a Pils. Taste is about the same, fuity floral hops and quite a bit of sweetness for a lighter ale. The palate is kind of thick and heavy for this reason but medium carbonation helps to cut it and keeps the beer on the good side of cloying, albeit just barley, and it starts to get kind of grassy and weird as it warms. This stuff seems to pride itself on being very drinkable and it doesn’t quite hit that mark but it’s still reasonably tasty.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Light orange malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with large head and nice lacing. Lightly sweet orange malt and mildly bitter orange peel flavor. Very light body. No bad flavors - just bland.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma is of toasted malt. Earthy, malty flavor. A bit astringent and metallic. Quick, bitter finish. Not sure what this one is trying to do.

Pour si the best thing about this brew. Flavor is weak and a bit skunky. Aroma is almost non-existent.

Nothing much here. Very drinkable session beer with no excitement. Wouldn’t buy again, but wouldn’t turn down.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a dark-hued clear orange body with a medium, short-lived white head. Nose is red fruits, honey melon, fuzzy grass tones and hints of caramel and straw. Taste is melon, peaches, red fruits and hints of white chewing gum, floral honey notes and mild pine tones. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Decent enough, but despite the fuzzy "Belgian touch" of sugary esters mixed with American hops this ultimately fails to make much of an impression.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Workable, middle of the road APA. Not a lot going on, but not distasteful either. Sweet malts, bitter, not too fruity hops.

Pours a clean golden color with one finger of off white head. Aroma is bready. Some yeastiness. Very lightly hopped. Flavorful. Not a bad beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not bad at all. Very drinkable, and for the ABV, pretty flavorful. I enjoy the slippery mouthfeel -- surprised it’s not a lager. Malt flavor could be more pronounced, but all in all, not bad at all.
