3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark reddish copper with a large, creamy, off white head. The nose has papery hops and a solid biscuit and cracker background. The flavor leans a little to the malt side with bread and biscuit notes, but there is a little earthy and piney hoppiness. Reminds of an English pale ale. Lots of soft carbonation leading to a medium finish. Nice session brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium sized off white head with fair retention and lace. Clear dark copper colored brew. Nose is malty with crystal sweetness and and some iced tea notes. Body is lightly medium with a somewhat prickly carbonation and annoying grainyness. Dry malts, not much else, grainy, lil earth, ice tea notes. Finish is bland, nothing. Bummer.

More of an amber to me. Red amber color with average head. Solid mouth feel. Hops and malt are evenly matched. Interesting mix of hops which are quite unique.

Hazy orange gold. Nose is nutty, toaty and malt-driven. Palate is caramel, smoky, nutty, fruitcake and pine. Nicely balanced with a good mouthfeel and really good overall flavor.

Pours a reddish amber, laces thinly down the glass. Crisp but thin, slight caramel, light hop taste which gives the maltiness a bit of a harsh taste.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours deep amber/copper with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops and some caramel and bready malts. Flavor about the same, with more hops than many pale ales. Average texture. Not a bad beer.
