Not a bad blend, but it’s a bit grassy for my taste. The bitterness lingers a bit after swallow.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-23-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deep golden-amber color with a big off white head. The head fades relatively fast to give a medium level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is rather light but nice. It consists of some bready malt and some caramel as well as a small hop presence of some pine and a little bit of apple.
Taste – The taste begins with a light sweetness and a good bready base. As the taste moves on the caramel sweetness that was present in the beginning gets stronger and a presence of hops becomes more pronounced. While the breadiness gets lighter toward the end, the citrus and pine hop flavors develop further to the end of the taste, and when combined with the sweeter caramel and a light fruit flavor leave a bitter-sweet taste on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average to slightly above average with the carbonation level being on the lower side. The body is rather fitting, but the carbonation is a bit lower then would be ideal with a greater level likely giving it a bit more of a refreshing and exiting feel.
Overall - A nice session brew with a nice flavors.

Drank from a hotel bar on draft -- Only "local" brew that was on top. This beer was pretty good. Sptrizy in flavor and mouthfeel. Definitely a beer that could be enjoyed in large quantities. Enjoyable for a beer that you drink and don’t realize you’re drinking it.

Copper color with caramel malts in the aroma. Taste is malty with a bit of nutty flavor, similar to a brown ale. Light hop bitterness. Very drinkable.

Another excellent pale ale. First I have had from this brewer. Nice and hoppy and crushable. Pours orange in color an smells hoppy. Had at Ruth kris.

A favorite since I arrived in the Twin Cities. A solid pale ale, more in the British style than American. About the best to my taste since Molston Pedigree.

A bit darker than I would expect from an extra pale. Lemon and berry on the nose, bread and citrus on the palate. Medium body and a lingering bitter finish. I'd do it again.
