3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet floral aroma. Flavor is sweet with some citrus hops. A good ale. Nothing to go crazy about, but I would drink one of these any time. Gotta support my local brews.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark straw with a good white head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt, white wine, hops, and some honey. Tastes malty, with hops, and a nice fruity, honey finish. This is a very complex and bold golden ale, with some pale/IPA qualities to it. Worth seeking out, as are all the St. George beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-gold with small white head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, straw and sweetness. Hops hit you up front, and stay with you through the end and the aftertaste. A bit much on the straw flavor. Slightly sweet taste but almost undetectable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold with an orange tint, a bit fizzy. Slightly sweetish aroma, with some citric hops and bready notes. Flavor is far more of a blonde than an APA. Vaguely beery, somehow almost stale. Flavor notes overall reflect the aroma, but with a somewhat cooked aspect. Easy to drink, but not my thing.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden color with a nicely lacing head. Aroma is of mild hops with a little bit of maltiness. Flavor is reminiscent of Sierra Nevada, but a little bit more thin. Overall a nice pale.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A hazy copper colored brew that is topped by a cream colored head. A spicy lightly citric aroma, and perhaps a bit of oxidation character, emanated from my glass. There is a bit of spiciness in the taste as well. This is a fairly bland beer though. I seems to be dominated by stale malt and cardboard type flavors.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
very clear and eye-squinting brightness from the trumpet brassy pour. hoisted on high is a jaunty mantle of foam the color of sunflower meats. served cold, aroma is tough to get ahold of, but my nose finally tackled what i likened to pear-like notes, green willow foliage, orange hard candy, and fresh bleached white flour. brisk mid-tongue attack of carbonation throws all it's hops into play immediately, mostly with citrus zest flavors, leaving slightly sweet malts to whisper at the edges with a golden-grained accent of tortilla chips. nice little pale-- cleansing and clarion with spicy foods.
