3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An amber beer with a beutiful head. The aroma is light with notes of the nice maltblend. The flavor is flat but of a good maltblend and slightly bitter - a fine flavor. Clearly above an average beer - but not a super beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden red copper color with substantial cream colored head. Faint but sweet aroma of malt and some
other aroma - bread? Flavor begins malty and sweet with fruit and caramel. Slightly tangy hops also apparent.
Middle and finish seem predominantly rich, malty, and somewhat dry. Body is a bit creamy and very pleasant

Nice coppery colored liquid with a good head. Sweet malty aroma and a nice sweet malty taste. Nice hops with a good bitter taste on the finish. Very good.

Clear copper with a thin head. Healthy carbonation up front, becomes maltier and thickens through the sip. Caramely-sweet at first, carbonated in the middle, and bitter at the end. Delicate, fruity notes dance here and there. Very mild bitter notes come up in the finish. Aftertaste is bitter and sweet.

I found this brew to have a very smooth flavor and a fruity aroma.No overwhelming bitter aftertaste.While I wouldn't consider this to be an outstanding brew, it is one that I would consider drinking for the evening.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Ah much better than that Budweiser I just had. The aroma was hard for me to place, but its color is a nice amber brown and yielded an invigorating head of small to medium light brown bubbles. A slightly above average taste yet very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Finally I decided to buy this beer after seeing it on the shelf for over 2 months. The body is browny red and clear. The head was huge but settled to a nice size and had great lacing. Aroma was quite hoppy and floral, perhaps even a tad spicy. Flavour is smooth and hoppy. Finish is fluffy and delicate. Extremely well balanced beer.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2003 Samuel Smith has created some fantastic beers; this Pale Ale is no exception. This Ale has a smooth copper-amber color, and no bitter bite. A must try beer.
