2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very light bodied. Mild flavor, a little boring and watery - but still much better than a BMC brew. It’s hard to pick out specific flavors because it’s so light on the malts, hops, bitterness, etc. In other words it should be classified as a British pale ale instead of an American pale ale. Ha!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nothing remarkable in this brew, sort of flat and bland. Amber brew with little head, mild flavor and milder aroma.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden yellow with a white head. Aroma and taste is mild fruity notes. pale malt, grains and mild bitter hops. Palate is a medium body, crisp, moderate carbonation. The finish is pale malt, grains some grassy notes with some bitter hops on the end. Overall a bit boring, nothing really stand out here, an ok brew.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This seems to be trying to mimic a British pale ale and fails in the attempt. The label says it is the ultimate crushable ale! They were really hard up for a description of this faux micro-macro concoction. Light amber pour with a small white head, no lacing. Aroma is middle of the road, malty, hay, and stale hops. Flavor is somewhat sweetish caramel and no hop character, pale ale wannabe. Too much focus on Dan Patrick, and not enough on the quality of the ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Really more of a nutty amber than an APA. Light, refreshing, but not a lot of character.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap. Served a reddish copper color with a decent head and some lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and some fruit sweetness. Taste of malt, caramel, bit of fruit and grain in the background. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, smooth but a tad short on flavor. Decent non-offensive beer,

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottle isn’t fresh. Drunk on the San in line. A deep clear gold with a thin foamy/fizzy head(is there a word for midway between the two?) the aroma is fruity & wine like. The taste is fairly malty with soft fruit notes. Fairly nice but it tastes pretty average or even a little stale.
