1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Crushable ale. One-off collab with Dan Patrick. Pours a gold color with little head. Aromas of water. Taste is slightly bitter with some sweetness. Highly crushable and Iím not sloppy by halftime.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Gold pour with small off-white head that leaves a slight ring. Aroma is faint pale malt and grain. Tastes are bready, floral and background citrus. Fairly bland. Minus 1 point for being associated with that windbag.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a creamy white head. The aroma picked up toasted grains topped by just a little bit of grassy hops.. not much going on, and not interesting. The flavor found pale malts, a little honey, and cardboard at the core, with light grassy bitterness and prickly carbonation on the edges.. meh. Light-bodied with just an OK feel.. I donít need another.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared a 12 brown bottle into a sampler glass. It poured a light orangish-amber colour with moderate off-white foam. Malty sweet, faint caramel, reminiscent of grapefruits and English marmalade. Faintly flowery and pine resiny. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, bittersweet aftertaste. Tasty-enough, sessionable, but predictable APA.

Bottle from Meny Oslo City enjoyed at home
Golden clear, white head. Smells of spices and honey, some resins and hops. Quite wak and boring actually. Moderate sweet, woody, some honey and grain. Moderate bitter, hints of resins and wood. Not at all like an APA to me; where is the hops?

35,5cl bottle from Meny Oslo City. Pours almost clear golden with a white head. Mild hoppy and malty aroma with citrus, fruity notes and hints of peaches, pine and caramel.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Funky little 12oz bottle pours with a clear deep gold body that supports a near white head of foam. The aroma offers up mild notes of pine and spicy dank onion hoppiness with a light Pilsner like maltiness in the background. The taste begins with a modest degree of bitter hops like pine and earthy spiciness but theyíre a bit tough to discern. It then picks up some smooth malt notes to midway as the hop taste develops a bit of a citrus side to it. Darn tasty session brew.
