3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is cereal, planty hops, light fruity esters and some tart citrus. Flavor is toast and cereal up front, some mineral, citrus and tree fruit notes toward the middle and a little hay and planty hops to the finish. Light body with a neutral feel and light, blanketing carbonation. Decent stuff.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz cool bottle into a pint can glass. Head engulfs the brew, white and fluffy and 3cm that withstands. color is a hazy and murky orange. Aroma is sour crab apples, herbal vegation that is not good, and soil with worms slithering around, and some hops. Taste is low key hops, dry citrus and some old cedar. Definately a session brew, which is nice for the whole sports viewing and if you want to drink 85 of them, but not crushable. 3 of these is plenty.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A darker shade of gold on the glass. Weak herbal hops aroma, some basil and oregano. Slight bland flavor with a ’Belgian’ note to it. Kind of odd for a pale ale. Really no hops in the flavor at all. Overall, meh... At least its not offensive.

This beer has a nice looks and a great mouthfeel, but the the taste and aroma almost almost flavorless with a bland taste that has no redeeming qualities.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is a light-medium gold. Light head , fairly clear, leaves pretty good frothy decending soapy lace. Aromas of sweet cereal grain, light grassy hops noble pilsner like hops,mineral,slight carmel sweetness. Bready. Overall its pretty fresh,mild and pleasant.
Taste is pilsner wheat meets a mild pale ale,grainy sweetness,corn sweetness with light hop flavor,light citrus.Light citrus lightly bitter. Decent enough. Not bad for its abv. Easy gateway pale ale for someone converting from light beer. Pretty clean really.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Yellowish-orange pour with a short off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, flowers, and toffee. Flavors are balanced but lack much in the way of any hop intensity. As a pale ale there should be more hop flavor. Not a terrible beer just not good enough to fill my passion bucket.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma is light with faint notes of pine and bread. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet and well balanced with an easy finish. This beer goes down pretty quick.

clear golden with a decent head and a bit of lacing. aroma has just a hint of very light citrus and not a lot else. flavor is a bit grainy, herbal with a finish and aftertaste that didn’t really appeal to me.
