2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An interesting find in Dan Murphys and seemingly well priced at $17 for a 6 pack. Simple and light for the style but not bad, particularly in light of some so-called local craft. Lager-like nose doesn’t give me much but the palate shows a little more fruit and character. This bottle wasn’t terrible fresh and perhaps even slightly skunked.

Flight 2. Poured from a bottle. Foamy white head, very slightly cloudy golden color. Head lasted a couple minutes. Sweet citrus aroma, smooth going down, tangy but not bitter.

19 aug 2014, bottle. Light orange, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is rich, malty, some peaches, orange juice. Med body and fizzy. Rich, tropical fruit, peaches, granola malt, but mainly fruity. Pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This beer has always been poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking hazy orange color with a decent half fingered white foamy head that left some light lacing sliding down the sides of the glass.
The smell had earthy and herbal bitter citrus aromas compounding over top of a decent malt background.
The taste was semi-sweet, but seemed to lack any bittering for an American Pale Ale.
On the palate, this one sat at/about a light to medium in body. It had a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed to have finished smoother than most APA’s, but nothing unacceptable.
Overall, not a bad pale ale, though probably closer to an EPA, but hey I’d probably drink it again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle pours a light golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves only a few specks of lacing behind. Aroma is light citrus and caramel. Taste is a mild caramel sweetness with a light citrus and grassy hop bitterness with hints of other light fruits. A very mild pale ale that needs a bit more substance. Not recommended.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice copper color, but aroma is a strange soap and almond and yellow cake mix combo. Taste is more of the same, with a grainy, lemony finish. Vegetable hint going on as well. Not sure about this one...

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Citrus hops and some oats are present in the aroma. Pours a lighter shade of copper with a small white foam. Flavor is fruity and hoppy with a very subtle syrupy malt in the back. Medium bodied with a noticeable carbonation. Overall, not a bad brew at all. Pretty decent flavoring and balance. I’d give this a C+ rating.

Bottle. Clear gold with a white head. Modest aroma of lemon and honey. Sweet with honey and slightly toasty caramel, some suggestion of cooked vegies, lemon. Balancing bitterness. OKish.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours light and amber. Some bubbles. I found very little aroma in glass. Found it light in taste. Hint of citrus flavours but not too much bitterness. Must be on the edge of being ale/lager.
