2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper color that is a bit cloudy with a thin head and modest lacing. Citrusy hop aroma with a touch of spice. Medium-bodied, moderately carbonated but lacking the punch to make it more than mediocre.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Appearance is medium brown- not quite that of a brown ale, but seems darker than most pale ales. There’s a medium hoppiness in the nose, and the flavor is quite hoppy and slightly citrusy. Feels nice in the mouth.
ADDITION: SAMPLED THIS AGAIN THIS EVENING under the name "Alexandria Ale." I’m beginning to think that there are two quite different beers, because the cottle I sampled this evening was awful... a LOT of melted plasticlike flavor and aroma. I had to pour it out.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Dominion Brewfest. Pours an amber color with an off white head. Aroma is malty and floral. The taste didn’t agree with me; metallic with hops and citrus notes. Not hoppy enough for an American Pale. Odd aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet biscuit malt nose. Clean fruity and well made. Spicy hop finish (English?) Not an overly exciting beer, but very enjoyable.

Pretty decent actually. Copper color with a slim head. Some malt/hops in the aroma. Different taste then I expected. More floral...citrusy. Medium bodied, some hops in the flavor. Pretty smooth. Overall a pretty decent Pale Ale!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange/copper amber. Small off-white head. Floral, faintly malt nose. Lightly caramel, graham cracker, sweet malts, light to medium bodied, finishing with pleasantly subtle hops. An appealing brew, nice alcohol, well balanced. No complaints from me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear red in color. Faint malt aroma. Not hoppy enough for an APA. Very quick finish with slight hoppy bitterness.
