3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It poured a light copper slightly cloudy color with a medium head that quickly dissipated leaving about an average lace around the glass. The smell had some floral scents with hints of caramel and hops. The taste was slightly malty and sweet with brown sugar and caramel, and had a slightly bitter hoppy finish. It had a light body with a high carbonation. A good ol’ APA that was pretty drinkable. Overall, decent for the style and good for me.

Drank from bottle. Got this in a twelve pack sampler (Export, Old Thumper, & Applehead). Best beer in the sampler). I’m usually not a huge pale ale fan, but enjoyed this one quite a bit!
