2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma is citrus-y, hoppy. I found the taste a bit thin, particularly bitter with a lacking finish. Body was also on the thin side. I’ve had this several times and it continues to be a lackluster brew. Of course, it’s better when you’re at a bar and this is the only decent thing in sight.

Aroma is slightly piney, malty, mouthfeel is very rounded and soft. Taste is crisp, refreshing, with some grapefruit and resin but not that much. A solid performer still after all these years.

The classic pale ale that started it for me. Pours a clear, bright caramel. Love the good pine taste to it, and some citrus flavor, even a slight hop spice.

Bottled 25/03/15. Pours a clear, bright caramel with a one finger head that thimst to a film and leaves mild lacing. Aroma has smooth notes of citrus, pine, bread, and slight hop spice. Taste is balanced. Bread, caramel, mild pine, citrus, resin, and slight hop spice. Medium body and carbonation clean and very easy drinking in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Overall a really nice, easy drinking. Beer. Bready caramel mild pine, citrus, and hop spice.

Bottle (12oz $1.30) Golden with small white head. Aroma seems slightly off, a little funky like a Belgian but much less so? Any way taste is good. Drry and slightly bitter in the finish. Would never refuse this beer, but not a "regular" either. Good. This was my introduction to craft beer many years ago.
