4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A benchmark American Pale Ale. Nice blance between bitterness, aroma and malt. Nice hoppy and dry finish. Excellent and it’s been around for so long I tend to forget how good it is.

(Tap) As pale ales go it’s pretty decent. Enough character and flavor to be drinkable.

Draft @ DAL Doubletree. Faint hoppy aroma. Dark amber (slightly darker than bottle). Taste a tad more flat than bottle. Medium body. Overall, less impressive than bottle. May be bad lines here?

On tap at Mills River tasting room. As good if not better than the bottled version. Just ever so slightly sweeter and cleaner to me. Delicious. A true classic. Wish I had the recipe.

On draft at the Bier Markt. A dark amber, almost orange body, with medium sized white head.
Fruity hops on the nose.
Fairly crisp on the tongue. Tastes are sweet citrus hops, with an enjoyable pine finish. I could session this beer no problem.

Having at The Draft in Oceanside after a Shock Top. Oh what a relief it is. Great hoppy aroma great malt with slight slight bagel toasty. Real slight really adds to malt chapter. Great hop clean finish.
