3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden color with amber hues. From the nose, you can immediately determine that this is not a pale ale with American hops. The smell is malty with a slight hint of floral British hops. The body has a caramel/toffee flavors from the crystal malts, and a bit of toasty undertones. The hops are slightly spicy, citrus and floral, which are a bit underwhelming due to the sweet caramel/toffee flavors in the body from the residual sugars. I believe this beer is more of an ESB than a pale ale, especially after getting the yeast on the tongue, but styles are blurred these days anyway. Good beer, not great, and has potential if IBUs are reconsidered.

I give this one high marks because it was a perfectly cooled, very fresh tasting at the Schlafly Bottleworks in St. Louis. For a plain-jane beer it was well crafted.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with no head. The aroma is flat wit hsome grainy notes. The taste is nutty, sweet, and really bland. Not good and not being too detailed.

I had this at Fridays. Pours a amber with a off white head. Taste malt, light bitterness. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Poured a clear golden color with a decent sized white head. Aroma is very faint floral, caramel, and citrus. Taste is citrus, floral, with a sweet finish. Not a whole lot going on here. Not terrible but definitely not something I’d seek out again.

While its not particularly bad, there is nothing memorable here. A very faint aroma, an avg looking pour, & an underwhelming taste. Possibly a good gateway beer for the macro drinker but not my cup of tea!

Very tasty English pale ale just like I like them with more malts and less hops then California pale ales. Very smooth and easy to drink the entire bottle in just a few gulps. This is a great brewery in St. Louis.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I must have gotten a bad six pack. I don’t get how this thing is rated a 44 with so many low-to-mid 3+ ratings? The one I’ve tasted so far (unfortunately, I’ve got a 6 pack to work through) was awful. Absolutely zero characteristics of a pale ale. More like a really bad and light-bodied lager with tangy/sour notes. Drain pour.

12oz bottle poured a medium red color with white head. the aroma part was pretty mild. I was expecting a bit more on this one. the flavor was ok but not what I would call a solid apa. light to medium body with mild flavor it was just ok for.me.
