3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very interesting beer. Hard to categorize. There is a slightly sweet, almost adjuncty, presence that dominates the beer, yet there is an interesting and somewhat unexpected bitterness that creeps up on the finish-- and the two profiles are totally separate from each other. They exist totally apart. Strange. Some elements of subtle spiciness, perhaps, as well. The palate seems almost electric and acidic at times, without anything adding to the taste profiles. Not a bad beer, but nothing I would probably buy again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty decent resurrection of a beer that hasn’t been made in over 30 years. Pours clear amber medium head, mild carbonation. Taste is lightly hoppy., mild alcohol taste for a 6.0% brew. Easy to drink, not overly complex. One of the trailblazers of American craft brought back to life. Good beer to knock back a few while watching the game - when you actually care what you’re drinking, not that mass-produced swill from the likes of MC and InBev

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at Sam Adams GABF brunch, finally getting around to putting notes in. Pours a slightly hazy, deep golden color; fine-bubbled off-white head. Mineral and spicy hop character, lightly restrained, with a rounded core of honey and light fruitiness. Medium body; medium-high CO2; perfectly drinkable, well-designed beer; a bit lager-like in its reserved fruitiness; pepper, spicy, and mineral hops; a touch of honey: like a lightly hopped extra pale ale. Toasty, lightly dry finish; spicy, minerals.

Sampled on 10/12/2012 at GABF. This American Pale Ale pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, slightly hoppy. A medium bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy. Decent carbonation. Slightly sweet overall. There is a lot of history in this recipe. Nice to see it come back. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2013 (draught at Bukowski’s) nice copper with off white head. Very light malt and floral hops aroma. Flavor is biscuit malt and floral hops. Not much of an APA. If you’d told me it was an ESB I’d’ve believed you,
rerate from bottle: paler gold, not as malty, not as ESB-ish

I had this one on tap @ Sunset. Great place. Very light aroma of malt with very little bitterness and not much spice or character to note. Taste is also about the same. Easy to drink yes but I would not choose this one for a lighter beer.
