3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Off the tap at the brew pub. Thin head with medium straw colored body.
The aroma is great: grapefruit and lemon.
The taste is smooth with a good dose of malt and moderate bitterness.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation and medium body.
It’s a nice, easy drinking ale and flavorful.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I get a orangy citrusy hop aroma from this dark yellow hazy brew with big bubbles raising to form an off white head. A nice hop flavor up front then bitterness and sweetness mix through out the lightish medium bodied brew ending with a bitterish and biscuit aftertaste.

On tap at Yard House. Amber with a nominal white head. Flowery hop aroma is mild but pleasant. Body is slightly dry. Caramel, bread malt flavors and a clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 22 oz bottle, labeled at 5.4% ABV. Nose is mostly piney with a touch of malty toastiness. Moderate bitterness, slightly watery body, like an English bitter. A touch of tea-like astringency. Pleasant bitter aftertaste. Flavor is best at 55-60 F, and it really loses it if drunk even a few degrees cooler. Good session beer, compares to an English bitter in drinkability, although at 5.4%, the ABV is too high for it to be a real pint at the pub.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little fruity, a little bitter. All in all its a pretty standard ale with a lower abv that should allow this to be an all night drinker, but the aftertaste is very heavy and justs sits on your tongue which changes the flavor of subsequent sips. Nice beer to visit, but I wouldnt want to live there.

solid brewery, but this one’s pretty weak. it always makes me wonder when the brewer is calling it a session beer. no creativity on this one. nothing offensive, but quite boring, subdued flavor, aroma, body...a lingering dry bitter finish it’s only saving grace."

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Tap] Amber colored pour with some lacing on the glass. Not much head to it though. Floral hops, mild citrus, grainy notes and pine in the nose. Tasting notes of pine needles, grapefruit, cracker, grain husks and lemon cleaner. Not as clean as I was hoping for. Medium body. Lingering dry and moderately hoppy finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pale is just okay. Has the hops of a light IPA but it just doesn’t really have a refreshing flavor to it. Something is just a little off.
