2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks ogglethorp. Pours a deep, hazy amber orange. Initial aroma combines a whiff of orange citrus with apple cider and a light caramel, but the aroma quickly becomes faint. Flavor is apple cider with spices, especially cinnamon, balanced by a a resnious nutty element and hops bitterness. The whole isnít well harmonized, the bitter and tart elements detract rather than add here. Medium body, crisp mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber orange with medium off-white head. Aroma of a nice balance of citrus and floral hops, grass, and yeast. Flavor matches with a nice bitterness, but a good balance of malt. I am not a pale ale fan, but I can definitely be up for more of this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bonused by dmschefke. Thanks! Aroma is a tad sweet with caramel, and floral grassy hops. Perhaps a light yeasty twang in there too. Amber pour with a really nice head that hung out throughout. Soft caramel and bready sweetness, a light yeasty note that gave it a distinctly spicy characteristic. Soft hop bitterness in the form of grass and flowers. Perhaps a touch balanced toward the malty side, still and interesting take on an uninteresting style.
