2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden pour with a large off-white head. Aroma is a fair amount of floral hops and some sweet caramel malt. Taste is more malt forward and rather sweet. Flavor has a fair amount of Belgian yeast characteristics to it. Not what I was looking for in a pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle pours a pale amber color with a fizzy white head that fades and leaves light soapy like lacing smells of straw, citrus, and light pine. Tastes of the same things with a slight metallic and some caramel flavor. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. Nice for the heat of Texas and summers elsewhere. Nothing special as far as pale ales go though.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is a subpar attempt at an American pale ale. It is a nice clear orange color w/ a fine-bubbled white head w/ lots of lace. It does really look nice but that is about all the good I have to say about this. The nose is muted floral hops and a slightly oxidized nutty malt character. Taste is just a bit sweet w/ a harsh metallic sort of bitterness floating on top of it. It is a bit syrupy in texture w/ medium to vigorous carbonation. This is really nothing fresh and vibrant to the hop character here and the metallic off-flavor keeps it from being all that drinkable so I just don’t think this is a worthwhile beverage in any sense.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decent light copper pour w/ a thin white head that leaves a little lacing. The aroma is slightly awkward - kind of sour & sweet. Unfortunately, the taste isn’t as interesting. This is a pale? Please, this is bland & barely a step above a macro. It’s dry w/out any hop presence & all around a disappointing brew!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a decent sized but short lived off white head. Aromas of bread and light caramel maltiness with hints of fruit and earthy hops. The flavor holds more earthy hop flavor than the aroma suggested backed up by a solid bready caramel malt base and lots of sugary fruitiness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent pale ale, but kind of middle of the road. Nothing flawed, but a bit boring.

Pours an amber color with off-white head. Some pine and citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with just a bit of malt.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. Tall head that reduces quickly but stays at about a quarter inch. Kind of a skunky aroma and taste. Tartness at the finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber with white head that dissipates quickly. Faint hop aroma. Hop taste but I am not a big fan of this taste. Pale ale palate. Drinkable but needs better hope to improve.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a bottle. Pours clear copper with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like a musky, sweet corn, dry malt, light fruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet corn, fruit, and dry, musky malt.

12 oz bottle from the six type summer sampler case. Plenty of hops with a medium body. Overall average beer but I'd drink it again.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear amber brown with a long-lasting thick head cover, cobwebs of lace. Aroma is appealing malt. Taste is malt up front adds caramel and light fruit in the palate before turning slightly bitter in a short finish. Simple to the point of being uninteresting....but it does drink easily.
