2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is dominated by grass and floral smells with a bit of nutty smell mixed in. It is amber with haze present. The carbonation is lively and the head is very fluffy. There is a grassy taste with floral bites that is fairly good. There is a bitter bite on the palate as well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a large frothy off-white head. The nose is light floral hops over a slightly sweet caramel and crystal malt base. The flavor shows a light bitterness level with some floral and citrusy notes. Sweet caramel and toasty maltiness. Fairly short finish with minimal bitterness. Lighter bodied with a bit of cling to the finish. OK, but I wish it were a bit brighter with the hops.

Not a fan of this one at all, reminded me of a blend of mellow yellow and sprite without the sweetness.

Nice color, light brown and clear. Nice aroma, what you would expect, nothing really unique there. Very fizzy, but kind of a flat taste.

Nice amber color with a thick frothy head. Fruity aroma with lots of hop flavor. Quite bitter for a pale ale. Solid drinkability and a nice overall beer.
