Not the best Sam has but a very decent Pale Ale. Nice hop notes and pretty smooth flavor throughout. Definitely a good beer to enjoy on a hot summer day.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours gold with a medium, off-white head. The aroma is citrus, floral, and pine hops, hay, and caramel malts. The flavor is sweet, with a subdued but pleasant bitterness. The palate is light to medium, fairly carbonated, and crisp. Overall, this is a straightforward and reasonably tasty ale.

Originally reviewed: 10/7/10. 12oz bottle picked up in a mixed sixer from Total Wine. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a much lighter than expected pale gold. This looks like a lager. A small finger-width white head on top. Light lacing left behind. Scents of honey, flowers, jello, and faint fuggle hops.
Good crisp ale here. Carbonation level is good, finishes clean. This has great flavor. Excellent balance between the bittering hops and a smooth sweet finish. Floral notes noted in the flavor, as well as some apple notes. This surprised me. I wasn’t expecting much, but this is as accessible of a Pale Ale as one can get. A spot in the fridge is set aside for this one from now on.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance - Clean yellow body, lots of bubbles, soapy head
Aroma - Honey, toffee, yeast and grapefuit
Taste - Toffee, dried orange, fuggles, hop finish
I didn’t expect much from this beer, but it was incredibly session-able. Lots of unique flavors in this pale ale, and the toffee notes combined with the light hop character in the aftertaste... This one may turn some heads as it’s not bad at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not very impressive. Light amber with a small head. The aroma is weak with some bread and grass. The flavor is the same with a touch of hops. Very thin and watery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep gold with a 2 finger head that faded rather quickly, but had decent lace. Deep honey malt aromas with a slight citrus smell mixed in. Upon first tasting its a big honey malt followed by a subdued hop flavor finishing with a decent mix of the two. Pretty evenly balanced.
