2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Straw colored beer with stiff, consistent white foam. Nose is slightly hoppy with hints of citrus, but light and barely noticeable. Taste is bitter up front and finishes with a bit of citrus, but not particularly complex. It is crisp and refreshing, however not that notable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Habitat. This brew has a rich, sweet aroma. There appears to be a generous amount of saaz hops (or something similar) in there, which makes it taste like a pilsener. Some sweetness and metallic notes too. Good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. I really enjoyed their IPA, so I was a bit surprised and let down by this one. Light yellowy orange, white head. Hops seem to be a bit faded with some citrus, cracker and light caramel. Flavor follows the aroma closely, but a bit sweeter with candy/floral hop qualities. Lighter slick body.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that quickly goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.
The aroma is toasted caramel malts with some grassy hops.
The flavor is toasted caramel malts and a little fruit with a light bitter grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, a solid pale ale.
