3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-24-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a clear medium amber color with a small half finger of pure white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is mainly of a grainy and malty nature with some lighter hop aromas of a more grassy and herbal smell. Along with these aromas are some lighter smells of caramel and citrus.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and cracker malt taste with just a hint of caramel sweetness. As the taste advances the caramel fades and is replaced by more grainy tastes with just a hint of citrus hop flavor. At the end a bit of grass, floral flavors, and herb come to the tongue leaving a crisp and drier taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather thin side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The thinner feel and moderate carbonation are quite appropriate for the style and make for a more refreshing and easy drinking brew.
Overall – It’s alright and refreshing, but nothing too exceptional.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells and tastes like a basic American Pale Ale. Okay, not much to differentiate it from many of the others.

perhaps touches of cardboard. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth
