3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small foamy head that quickly fades. Aroma is sugary sweet with pine, flowers, and light caramel. Taste is a little more sweet than bitter. Pine, flowers, and a slightly odd fruitiness. An ok pale ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Got this bottle in a trade, Thanks Devin. Poured from a 12 bottle. Aroma is slight pine and sweet caramel malt. Flavors are strong malt and slight bitter pine. Nice easy light drinking pale. Not normally my style, it’s a more malt forward pale. All in all a nice drinkable pale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice clean taste. Got a lot of caramel which in this case takes away from the drinkability I think. Overall pretty good though.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Its good, but not the best for what it is. Pours a copper color with a foamy off white head. Taste is sweet maltiness with hint of soap? And some bitterness but was hoping for more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours amber with a thin white head. Grainy nose with spicy rye and 7-grain bread. Light herbal hopping. Taste is much the same, with a grainy, soapy malt base, some rye spice, and an herbal hop finish. Pretty spicy and bitter on the finish, with a weird soapy off note. Medium bodied and well carbonated.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Madbeerbaron. Thanks, Ben. Orange-tan body with a frothy off-white head. Kind of buttery, this is not what I expected. Has deep butterscotch tones, maybe just pronounced ringwood, but this tastes borderline infected, off too. I still drank it, but I would have been upset if I had scooped up a sixpack of it.
