4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A-- Pours a clear golden straw color. Few carbonation beads showing after pouring. Two finger off white head. Quite nice and thick. Good body to the head. Slowly recedes to just under a finger and leaves a nice, thick, slightly soapy looking ring of lacing with this. Good beer to look at.
S-- Toasted bread, Carmel, soft but apparent pine, orange and grapefruit. slight spiciness to this. Very solid backbone to this.
T-- Warm toasted bread, good dose of Carmel, orange, and grapefruit. Soft but gnawing bitterness in the back of the taste.
M-- Medium body, medium carbonation. Fruit really builds in the mouth. Straightforward but solid taste of orange and grapefruit. Touches of metal here and there that disappoint but a good long lasting finish. Slightly oily in front and mid but finishes bread dry with a good orange finish.
O-- Are there better pale ales out there? Probably. Yet, have they been this consistent for this long a period? Probably not. Forgot how easy to drink this is and just what a good, solid beer it is. Just a classy beer as it is.

Perfectly balanced pale ale. Old reliable. Many times I scan the offerings and end up taking home a six pack of this fine ale and am never disappointed.

Light amber pour with a white head. Small clumps of yeast floating around from bottle conditioning. Light caramel and floral hop aroma. Flavors of caramel, a hint of pine, and an assertive hop bitterness to finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Benchmark American Pale Ale. Out of the bottle, poured a beautiful deep copper colour with slight haze from bottle conditioning, and with a creamy persistent head. I got aromas of grapefruit citrus, orange peel, pine, and wildflower honey. Moderate caramel malt, moderate hops with lingering bitterness. Very well balance. Creamy, refreshing. Excellent.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze bursztynowym z obfita biala piana. Sa cytrusy, troche przypraw i nuty zywiczne. Czuc tez kwiaty i troche karmelu. Goryczka i wysycenie na srednim poziomie. Raczej wytrawne i słodowe w odbiorze. Przyjemnie sie pije ale nie powala.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light copper color. Very bubbly. Somewhat hazy. Good thick two finger white head. Okay retention, good lacing.
Aroma is medium roasted malt. Light spicy hops. Light pepper, light pine. Smells nice.
Taste is roasted grains. Somewhat sweet. Lightly bitter. Light pine, slightly spicy. This is essentially the same as the nose. Good flavors, but everything is light.
Mouthfeel is medium full bodied. Very smooth. Easy to drink.
Overall, it’s good. Solid pale ale. Smooth, low bitterness. It’s a winner. I would recommend it, and I would buy it again.
