3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ 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...

Yellow with thin white head. Nose of grass, delicate citrus, cherries. Good carbonation and body. Sweet with ripe fruit and good hop balance. Well made, makes me want to crush a few.

Tall can from trade. Aroma was of grassy and piney hops. Flavor was the same, but the palate was rather thin. I could see one consuming mass quantities of this brew. Pretty good beer.

Refrigerated 1 pint can from JoePeesie poured into a shaker. Pours clear deep golden with big bright fluffy white head. Big bubble fluffy lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly resinous texture, and nice hop aroma. Taste is citrus, some long pine, and slightly bitter finish. Better than expected.

Very nice malt aroma. Pours with a good bubbly head and a cloudy darker golden body. Palate is clean, bubbly and slightly sticky. Taste is a pleasing higher-than-usual hop load for a pale ale. Slightly bitter finish.
