3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with tall tan head.
Aroma is strong,flowery, citrus hops.
Taste is mild bitter hops....rather dull tones in the hops, muted..not much zing compared to the scent.
Still, very nice taste and feel.
A bit watery, but good.

Very pleasant session beer and a good example of an american pale. Light, drinkable with a decent malt backbone, but hops dominate. It’s moderately bitter and heavy on the citrus. Finish is crisp, clean and refreshing.

Can from Liz. Pours light amber with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma: cat pee is next to godliness. It’s not all that simple, but it’s a very citrus aroma. Near med body. Flavor is a lot of citrus hop over a barely noticeable malt backbone. Finishes spicy/hoppy. Just excellent.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear gold with a thin white head. Weird perfumy aroma with some floral hops and some sweet malty toffee/caramel undertones. Flavor was the same with some sweet caramel/toffee tones with some nice moderate bitterness and a lovely citric/floral hop flavor. Pretty nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can 50 cl, tnx to Kan. Pours clear orange amber with a nice creamy beige head leaving lacing. Aroma is hoppy, piny, malty, slightly caramel, bready and wet leaves. Flavor is malty, piny, a bit acidy in front. More round maltyness with dryish piny and grapefruit bitterness with some fruity apple/pears touch from the middle towards the end which is more dry. Good longlived dry bitter finish. A bit too watery body, yet very drinkable and refreshing.

Can, as pictured, courtesy of Howard. Poured a clear gold. Smells of grassy notes and citrus hops. Very drinkable, great example of the style, I think. Simple but well made. Would love to have more of this, but alas...
