Yep, itís what was offered at a local Oktoberfest when no octoberfest beers were offered. Grassy aroma with malt. Pale malt and biscuit. Not bad but just not enough of anything. Refreshing but not something Iíd pick up again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle from a store in Independence, MO. This is golden and just a little hazy. A soapy off white head that leaves a lot of lacing. I smell a lot of sweetness with some tropical fruit. I taste sweet citrus and cinnamon. Hops are hard to find and malts are in front. Malts and cinnamon with a bit of citrus are what this has to offer. Perhaps a hint of caramel and apricot is tasted late. For a session APA this is not bad at all.

This was an OK pale ale, there are hops somewhere in there but it is mostly grainy and lightly fruity. I guess itís an "audible" when the only other choice is Budweiser.

Smell is west coast hops. Minor biscuit aroma
Taste is like an esb. Some cereal and lager qualities. Mild pine cone and a touch of oranges

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.
