3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22 oz, at Cardinal. It pours an unclear, golden body and a small, white head. The aroma is very piney and citrusy, leaving little room for the malts. Really pleasant, although a bit one dimensional. That goes for the flavour too. The ABV is well hidden, didnít expect it to weigh in at 9 percent. Itís a bit too herbal in the flavour, slightly grassy, but mostly citrusy and piney. A nice bitterness chimes in, lasting for a while. Full body, with a faint warmth. Soft carbonation. A pleasant beer, but Iíd rather choose a Belgian pale and strong one. 121022

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent. The nose is grass and hay with some pine notes and little malt. The beer is golden with deep yellow highlights. Bitter with some sweetness. Smooth and fuller than the typical pale lager, but with some warming notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden in colour with a long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is herbal, sweet, some caramel, grassy with some citrus hops. The flavour is lightly sweet, rather hoppy, herbal and citrus, light alcohol. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, quite bitter and dry at the end.
I like these imperial Southern Tier beers, well done here.
