2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden color with a very small head. Nose is a little hoppy, but seems slightly skunky, too. Taste is slight. Not a lot of flavor. Meh.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle pours a clear golden color reminiscent of a lager or pilsner. Aroma was malty, less hoppy. Honestly I think this is an attempt by big "craft beer" to tap into a smaller market. Taste was bland and no distinct or indicative of the American Pale Ale label. Would not recommend.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from a fellow Siebel student. Pours a clear, golden-amber colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is somewhat fruity and lightly sweet with a bit of a citrus, bready caramel, and light grass. Flavor is similar. A few citruses with a light grassy pine and a lightly sweetened, somewhat bready, pale malt backing with a touch of caramel. Finishes clean and fairly dry with a medium-light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, this wasn’t anything special, but it was very easy drinking and well balanced. Clean and smooth with a decent bitterness. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer. Pours light amber gold with a creamy white head. Light malty aroma with fruity/grassy hop. Med minus body. Flavor is quite mild. Starts with some grassy hop then light roasty malt pops up. Finish is grassy/fruity dry. Bitter enough to scare people 30 years ago?
After reading a book for 15 minutes while not paying attention to what I was drinking, my brain stood up and said "good stuff". So perhaps it’s a bit subtle for those of us used to hop bombs. But it is good stuff. Rating up a bit.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle clear yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of cracker, biscuit, buttered bread, hints of grass, spice, slight earthy tones, slight pils malt notes, smells like a decent pilsner. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, biscuit, some vanilla, cracker, slight grass, spice, yeast notes, mixing into a slight odd earthy and grainy hay tone, finishing sweet. Started well.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance is a golden color much like a light lager with just a film of a white head. Aroma is very mild with just a hint of malt and very mild hops and lagerish yeast. Taste is a mix of a light flavored ale and a pilsner. Not much going on with a very light mouthfeel and a lot of carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was so intruiged by the story on the side of the 6 pack carrier, that I had to purchase this. Hazy amber pour into a S. A. Perfect Pint glass. Aroma of malt, hay & light hops. Slightly sweet upfront, decent malt backbone, subtle hop on the finish. More fizz on the tongue than expected. Left with a funk in my mouth.

Interesting concept beer. It’s a good way to show how far brewing has come over the years. Pours yellow with orange tint. Aroma is earthy/hay. Taste is slightly sweet fruit with a dry finish.
