3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Did not pour into another glass; I don’t care about appearance. Smells sweet, carmel, a more toasted depth to the grain than I would expect from a pale ale (not necessarily a compliment). Taste is moderately hoppy, muddled sweetness. Probably would taste better very very cold like a macro. Light body with a thin, slightly syrupy texture. Doesn’t have as much of a contrast between the body and the slightly hopped taste as I would like... again, muddled, but an excellent attempt to throw most macrobrews off their paces.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber. Fruity nose. Taste- Caramel malt and fruity berry notes. Light hops. Not your typical pale ale. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased in Vermont, part of their tester mixed-pack. Pours a clean golden-amber colour with a warm creamy cap, good retention and lots of sticky lacing. Malty nose with biscuit, fruity malts, mild caramel, yeast and hints of bananas. Flavours of light roasted malts, bread and again, banana notes. Smooth mouthfeel. One of their better brews so far.

Bottle from Beer Culture New York City September 2013. This is a well balanced beer with hops and malt sharing equal billing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz screw top bottle. Pours a golden amber with a decent off white head. Wasn’t expecting much and didn’t really get much to be honest. Tasted like macro swill for the most part.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Terrible. Where are the hops? Biscuity malts that are muddled, not even pleasant. Tasted like a poorly done amber ale. Really dark for a pale ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Clear orange body, gold-tinted head that settles quickly without leaving lace. Subtle marmalade hop character, sweet grainy body, very watery. There’s no way such a bodiless beer can be 5.7%?

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber with a thick meringue head, some lacing, and a hoppy, sweet nose. Well-carbonated intro with a thin, watery mouthfeel and a mildly hoppy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a white, fizzy head. Light, hoppy aroma with a malt presence as well. Hoppy taste with some light tart and floral notes. Could use some more hops, but not too bad.
