2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yes, this is no ordinary easy drinker. It isn’t easy drinking at all. Unlike many/most pale ales that don’t suit my tastes, the problem here wasn’t in the finish but the front side. There was a frontal astringency as I drank it. Not to my liking. On tap at brewpub.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a golden color with an off white head. The aroma is lightly bready and toasty. Not much hops, which is surprising giving the hoppy blonde they make. Theres more in the flavor with some orange, a touch of caramel sweetness and a lightly grassy bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at brewery. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Faint musty, skunky hops aroma. Faint malt and citrus taste. Slightly more body than the others I’ve tried so far. The light bitterness is slightly redeeming, but disappointing overall.
