3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Pours a copper-orange color with an amazing thick head that stands well over the rim of the glass. Lots of sticky lacing is left behind has the head slowly drops. The aroma is reserved, with faint citrus hops over a solid malt backbone. The taste is full of grape fruit zestiness, with toasted malts. There’s lingering grassy hop bitterness left in the aftertaste. This is an easy to drink beer with a strong but not over-powering flavor profile. I can see coming back to this one, especially on a warm summer afternoon.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed: 10/15/08. Got this in a ’make your own sixer’ from the Fresh Market. Pours a nice deep gold with a perfect 2 inch head that leaves perfect lacing. This is a beautiful beer.
Smells of honey-kissed biscuits, and floral hops. This beer smells very inviting.
The hop taste washes over the palate and leaves a nice quick bite on the tongue. Perfectly hopped. The malt backbone balances this out quite nicely.
This brew has the perfect amount of carbonation and feel. Smooth yet crisp. I could drink a few of these.
I am really impressed by this "local" beer! I had never heard of these guys, but I will seek them out again for sure.

(12 ounce bottle - tumbler) Pours a translucent burnt yellow color, with sizeable head that leaves a sparse lacing. Tastes of caramel malt with citrus and resin hops. Light carbonation and pleasant hoppy finish.

Pours a orange/amber, with a big off-white head, and good lacing! Aroma of citrus, grains and floral hops. Flavor of citrus, pale malts and grains. A medium bitterness finishes Pale Ale, and lingers for a few. Very easy to drink!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle into an english pint glass. Appearance is a heavily carbonated copper with a good, solid beige head. Thick lacing. Aroma is all hops with some floral citrus and resin. Taste is bitter and grassy up front, somewhat sweet, and then bitter again. This one is okay. I like it more than the other offering I have had of theirs. As the beer warms, some of the bitterness wears off and sweetness shines through. It gets a lot more pleasant.

Bottle. Not flavorful with an almost non-existant aroma. Copper body. Totally forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle: appearance is light brown with minimal off white head, aroma is of pale malt and a hint of hops, taste is again of pale malt with some citrus hops, very mild pale ale but does not disappoint.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a light orange with small white head that dissapates quickly. Aroma is spicy pine, nice carbonation, good lacing. Taste is grainy malt and spicy (piney) herbal hops and finishes a little dry. Too much hop flavor to be an English Pale Ale should be American Pale Ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed on tap in a large hexagonal glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with an average sized head. Aromas of citrus and slight pine come through in the nose, as does the Munich malt advertised in the beer’s description; the latter disguising itself quite effectively as medium English crystal malt. Carbonation is high for the English variant of pale ale, although this may be more a result of the restaurant’s tap system than the brewer’s intention. The palate is assertively, but not overly bitter, again showing a bit more of a tendency toward APA than EPA. The Munich malt makes its presence known in the mid-palate, before fading a bit to allow for a more balanced ending note. Said finish lingers for a moment, seems generally clean. Overall, not a beer that is going to change lives, but a solid effort.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy pale orange gold color with nice amount of foamy white head. Aroma is sweet grassy orange citrus. Flavor is nice and light on the palate but not at all watery. Good balanced dry grassy malt base with bitter dry hoppy, but not too hoppy, piney hop finish. Overall, a real enjoyable session ale.
