3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650mL bottle. Pours a pale straw colour with a small soapy head and a light doughy lemon like aroma. Tastes like they used a pilsner malt as well as a zesty/spicy lemon hop. Not bad but certainly not to my liking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Champanes,
this ale had a hazy yellow-gold pour and gave a two to three finger white foamy head that receded to a thick cover and ring that hugged the sides of the glass, the glass had a lively center stream of bubbles with many single bubbles flowing elsewhere, it left lots of sticky spots, fingers and sheets of lacing on the glass,
this ale had light toasted malt and bread aromas with hops that were spicy with citrus and floral hints, a little white sugar sweetness,
the hops in this beer remind me a bit of the hops in the Brooklyn Sorachi Ace,
it had flavors of light toasted malt and spicy, citrus hops,
the finish had a spice and citrus hops on the palate that lingered for a while,
the mouth feel was light and creamy withaverage to lively carbonation,
a nice light malt and spicy hop drink.

Floral, perfumy, grassy, and toasty aromas. The appearance is slightly hazy, pale gold with a mostly fading, white head. Dry, bitter, and somewhat spicy. Light-medium body with low carbonation, and an herbal, spicy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The 22 oz bottle that I purchased was slightly different - it was labeled "First Growth Single Malt Ale." Pours pale cloudy gold with large white head. Aroma of bread. Although there is a bitterness there, it is a very mild hops flavor, almost more of a spring bock due to the balance with the malt. Medium body, easy to drink. Very effervescent.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazey yellow pour with a healthy head. Not what I’d expect from APA....seems like more of a farmhouse ale to me. Bitter throughout with a crisp taste. Not bad.
