2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thank you Sarah.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a glossy pale orange with a finger’s worth of a smooth white level head. As the head dissipated, stringy lacing stuck around the sides.
The smell had a cooked caramel aroma with a slight burnt pale citrus hops about it.
The taste was basically bitter with a side of caramel running about it in the background.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was mild but somewhat there. Overall, it’s an extra pale ale that fits the bill for the style and is okay to me.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color. Minimal head and no lacing to speak of. Aromas of biscuit, citrus, & mild earthy hops.
Taste is toasted, earthy grains, stone fruits, and a mild hop presence. Light carbonation & body. Slightly sweet and dry with a mild bitter finish.

Mild aroma of hops and some hints of citrus. Nice light amber color, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet malt at first, nice and creamy. Hints of caramel in there. Citrus and grapefruit flavored hops next, with a mild bitterness that is even. Sweetness wins out however. Finish is on the bitter end, but light, with some hanging aftertaste. Medium mouth feel with average carbonation. Nice brew.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Gravity at GBBF 2014. Poured a hazy, deep golden colour, with a tiny halo of white head. Aroma of oranges, hay and mango, but overall rather light and flat. Grain in the flavour, with some straw and an astringent bitterness. Finish was tart fruit, flat malt and lingering Fuggle-esque hop notes.

[on tap at Duluth Airport]
Sweet strawberry (Centennial?) hops aroma with some pine and faint toffee. Hazy bronze under a lacy, off-white sheet. Sweet toffee flavour with some faint dried fruit and medium bitterness, hops flavour is relatively weak for the style. There is also a slight, sherry-like nutty flavour. Medium light body, medium carbonation, slightly bitter finish.
