2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer is transparent and orange to copper in color. The head is 1/4" thick, and leaves plenty of lacing on the pint glass. The aroma is malt forward, with fruit and nut scents. The flavor brings an earthy, malty taste with the hop character quite subdued. Bread, toast, biscuits with jam in both the nose and flavor. A bit sweet, the beer leads with malt, while a subtle hop bitterness sneaks in near the finish. The feel is medium bodied, heavier than is customary for a 5.5% pale ale. Overall, this is drinkable, but not something I see myself having again.

This was my go to while attending Syracuse and didnít want to slum it. When you are in college, this is good premium stuff. When you showed up at a party and this was on tap, you knew you were staying for a while. Flavor doesnít really hold up anymore to my plate but I certainly prefer this over a macro brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma was sweet, caramel, citrus, floral, toasted malt. The appearance is copper in color, white head. The flavor is bready, caramel, some citrus and flowers. More malty and less hoppy than the aroma implies. The finish is floral and grapefruit. Medium to medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Better than expected.
