3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ordered a bottle from Doc Martin’s restaurant in Taos, New Mexico. Poured a golden copper color. Some lacing, not much. Aroma was light hops and some caramel malt. Flavor had some hop bitterness, but most of the flavor was malt. Overall a subpar pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Whole Foods-Indian School Plaza. Medium golden body with creamy pour, both body and head. Aroma and taste reflect the grain bill, which is fairly subdued for the American craft palate. Texture prevails over the subtle flavors, making for a middle of the road pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A little hazy Amberish gold with a thin tight off white head. Caramalty and leafy hoppy nose quite balanced and even on the nose. Flavor is the same. Calm and balanced overall, caramalty, leafy hoppy, a touch lemony, and a touch grassy. Crisp and dryish and a little too balanced. Could have used a more crisp and less earthy hop tone.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber beer with a thin off white head that disappears quickly. Surprisingly sweet nose of caramel, honey, and perfumed soap. Flavor is bitter initially with some musky floral hops giving way to a burst of sweetness reminiscent of butterscotch and toffee. The individual flavors are ok, but the combination is a bit off putting. Overall, not great.
