3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent if unremarkable pale ale. Wonderful appearance as it poors a clear copper color toped by an off white head. The aroma is nice if a little light. Malty with some earthy hopp notes. Flavor is nice and blanced. Initial malt sweetness follwed by grassy hop notes. Medium bodied beer and a good one for everday consumption.

bottle. very mild APA but still quite good. made for an excellent thirst quencher but the very mild hop bitterness was a surprise after all of the others in this catagory.

This is one of Schlafly’s better beers. Nice mild hops bitterness and good balance. I think its available in the bottle year round now.

Draft at the bottleworks. Nice balance between the hop bitterness and the malt. After this I’ll be trying more APA’s.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very nice offering from Schlafly’s. Pours a nice honey color with a pretty decent head. Aroma is singular, hops and grapefruit? Taste is a nice mix of hops and grain that blends really nicely together. Crisp.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Certainly better draft than bottled, it is still a pleasant experience either way. Pours a lovely burnt orange color with a thick white head that doesn’t dissipate right away. Starts smooth and sweet almost fruity and finishes in a well balanced hoppy bitterness with an almost smokey under tone. While perhaps not the best beer on the shelf, it makes a very refreshing every day beer. Best fresh; does not age as well as an ale should.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale orange with a nice layer of white head. Sweet orange rind, pine and floral hop aromas, and some lemony yeastiness. Solid hop presense in the taste with a bit of malt warmth and a lingering hop finish. Mouthfilling but not heavy.
