3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOD 11/5/14 from Total Wine. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Light nose of biscuit and somewhat spicy hops.
Light body with a somewhat smooth texture. Slightly below normal carbonation with a touch of effervescence in the middle and more in the finish.
The flavor profile is borderline outstanding. Intensity is a bit light (even for a session ale), fair complexity, world class balance and it is tasty. It begins with a grainy biscuit that soon surrenders to a mild herbal hop flavor. A perfect amount of mild bitterness arrives in the middle. The finish is a slow fade of hops.

Pour on tap at Old Chicago, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, cardboard, bread, biscuit, some spice. Taste was a mix of grass, bread, some cardboard, yeast, finishing fairly dry. Not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/13/2014. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, honey, light caramel, toasted biscuit, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, light pine, honey, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a really solid pale ale style. All around good robustness and balance of citrus/floral hops and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2015-08-06. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a small head and lace. Aroma has moderate resinous hop character, mild malt below.Flavour has moderate resinous green hops, modest bitterness. Very PNW combination of green hops and caramel malt, but less assertively hopped than you might hope. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Okay, does what it sets out to do I expect but not entirely to my own tastes. On tap at Bier Markt King St., Toronto.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle into an English pint glass. Pours a clear medium golden colour with a sparse white peripheral head. Light fruit nose with a touch of citrus, a bit floral. Light and crisp with a touch of caramel flavour. Smooth and creamy. Would be a pretty solid session beer if it wasn’t treated as an import here (and thus far pricier than such a bottle would normally warrant). Will try again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass showing a clear & bright, medium gold color, with a frothy layer of fairly persistent, soft white head foam, and web-like lacing. The nose was lightly fruity as a combination of lemon & pit fruit, and subtle, preserves-like sweetness. The taste included a modest citrusy, earthy, and dry bitterness, with lively, seltzery carbonation that elevated the light body enough to keep it from exposing a watery texture. Not overly flavorful, but quite sessionable, with a crisp finish.
