3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can, $1.99 single at Binny’s. Pale indeed. Except for a bit of unfiltered cloudiness, it could pass for a Bud with a big foamy head. Smell has lots of citrus and apricot from the hops, though, so Bud it ain’t! Drinks like a light lager, which is welcome in this kind of weather, Just a little malt that has been beaten down by the hops. Not just citrusy, but intensely bitter, too. Despite that, its lightness makes it an enjoyable drink. A perfect gateway for any noob who wants to know the difference between "regular" and "hoppy" beer.

12oz can. Pours golden orange with a small, fizzy white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, and grain. Taste is of grain. Very big on the grain. The hop character is there, but is evened out by the grain. Lingering bitter hop taste. Light bodied, and easy to drink. I could sit down and drink a few of these. A perfectly acceptable beer.

It’s a bit pilsner-like, though with more of a hops punch. The bitterness is a tiny bit too astringent, with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Not enough malt sweetness to balance it. Quite mediocre.

12oz can. Some floral and slightly citrus hops. Edifices or slightly below IPA I’m glad that spiteful moved to 6 packs, none of their beers were worth the bomber price point.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is hazed pale golden with lots of tight white head. Nose is light grain, faint honey, a bit of sweet malt, hops are herbal with notes of melon rind. Taste is even sweeter, stronger grain but more sugar, lighter malt, hops are husky melon rind and a bit grassy, hay like. Very light bitterness, drinkable, moderate carb.

Very very pale straw color. Smells like corn with some hops. Big bitter taste. Slight corn taste. It’s ok.

A very solid pale ale from Spiteful. Some citrus notes here amongst a caramel malt backbone. Well rounded, good spot of bitterness on the back end.
