3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an almost clear golden straw color with one finger head that leaves small to moderate lacing. Aroma initially of toasted malt, followed by a very surprising mild hoppy grapefruit presence. This is fantastic. Medium body with mild/moderate carbonation that is not to strong with creamy mouthfeel. Long mildly bitter finish. This is a fine ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the bottle, aroma is malty like a draft Sierra. Flavor is similar very malty, some hop character. Maybe citrus hops. Not bad, comparable to most pale ales. Doesn’t finish to dry. Cloudy pour, decent lacing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thinnish off white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear, golden body.....nose is cereal malts, light hop spice.....tasste is light malts, light fruit (pear, apple), slight sweetness, finishing with a light bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds a minimal tingle. This is an under hopped, lightly malted American Pale Ale. This is an old recipe and as such shows the tremendous evolution of American brewing. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

Fairly basic pale ale, lagerish. Yellow bodied with a small amount of white head. Medium mouthfeel. Very mild bitterness. OK drinkability. A small cut above a macro beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour is a clear gold with a large white head. Aroma is bready with a small bitter hop. Flavor is some bland malts with not much of a hop profile. Not much to grab you with this one. I’m sure back in the day this was groundbreaking but the craft beer world is always improving.

Bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and cereal with just a bit of grassy hop notes. Flavor is similar with a good amount of bread and cereal with just a touch of earthy grass hops.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from local store. Golden color with thin head. Not much of a smell detected. The taste is spicy with mild hops to it. It seemed to have citrus. This mouthfeel. But this wasn’t a bad beer. Refreshing actually.
