2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not too hoppy Not too Full bodied. This tastes like one of my typical sunday home brews fermented less than ten days. Filtration has taken away a little of the "umph" but overall it is a drinkable brew. a little on the dark side at a glance it looks like a brown ale but lacks the biscuit. If the price was a little better I would probably buy more. A little on the malty side but still much better than a domestic!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an orangish color with a white head. You got some sugary malts in the nose. Not really a hoppy beer, but there are some hops to be had. More on the malty side of things. Overall, there is just nothing impressive about this beer. It is bland and average. Although, compared to other beers put out by City Brewing, this beer is amazing (Iím looking at you Lucky Number 711).

Bready honey aroma. Clear amber with a medium head, some lacing. Flavor of grain and dried leaves with subtle honeycomb notes. Spinach and parsley finish. Absolutely not full bodied. Coming from City Brewery, I feared the worst but itís a pretty good beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Albertsonís: Poured a honey gold like color with a thin layer of fizzed head. Immediate aroma is a malty mess with an addition of cheap hop pellets. The flavor is just the same with no solid consistency other than the light caramel malts in the distant background. Good thing a six pack was only around five dollars, but hey I have to admit my beer spidy sense did kick in right when I saw this sitting on the shelf.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours medium gold with a one finger foamy white head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is malt and earthy hops. The taste is sweet malt, faint citrus and a slight pine bite in the finish, though itís more like a gnat bite and fades as quickly as it appeared. Medium bodied. Not great, but not half bad, especially for the price.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle courtesy of Headbanger) - Color is an orange brown with good carbonation and a fluffy off white head. Aroma of caramel and fresh hops. Taste is hoppy and sweet. Starting with a medium body it goes down with smooth with a rich feel. Finish comes on this rich feel with a caramel malt flavor and floral hop taste, then a little citrus and a faint bitterness. After taste is a lingering of the sweet notes overtop of a little more bitterness. This is a very tasty Pale Ale, it has rich flavors that lean a little more to the sweet side then most Pales.
