3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mammoth Beer Festival 2005
This was an interesting beer. A variety of flavors hit the tongue and aftertaste when drinking this beer. It is almost a sweet beer with hints of caramel and citrus really standing out. Slightly bitter in the aftertaste, but it balances out the sweetness very well. Iím not a big fan of APAís and this one isnít bad!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The odd butterscotch, apple, and bitter herb aroma seeped from the pale amber body upon the rapid collapse of the thin white head. The taste was of candy corn, caramel, malt, and herbal hop bitterness. The finish was sticky sweet yet bitter, and all burping was fruity. This seems more akin to some golden ales that Iíve had than to an APA.

Bottle poured a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma was alittle sour, biscuity and a little citrus.Palate was a little thick for a pale ale. Flavor was sweet, carmel, mild citrus with a hint of bitterness in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Basic pale more golden in character. Lite somewhat grainy malt body. Very little hop bittering below average for style. Only a brief hint of citrus fron the hops at all. Nothing to recomend beyond the label.

bottled: strange to be the first rater on this one....seems like it would of made its way on the board sooner. just started selling this at the grocery stores in our area. at first glance it looks somewhat like a macro trying to do a micro thing...motorcycle (moto) on the label. with that said this beer was better then i anticipated. poured copper brown with a bubbly tan head. nose of the slight fruit hops and sweetness. countinues with the same theme in the mouth. light and easy to drink.
