2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Capone’s, of the squat variety. Pours clear light copper with minimal off-white head and no carbonation. Nose is mild hops, vegetal, caramel, citrus. Tastes of hops, with a caramel and vegetal flavor. This one is rather uninspiring, as such.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a pint glass because I thought it was an American Pale ale and actually smelling and tasting it, I believe it is one.
The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white head gently dissipating leaving some light rings and having a lacing running here and there.
The smell had a light spritzy citrus bitter hops leading into a decent caramel maltiness.
The taste took those flavors and made it fairly sweet and earthy. A light toastiness adds itself in there as well. A combined citrusy and earthy aftertaste leads itself into a balanced wet to dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style as there was a decent harshness but nothing controlling.
Overall, I say this was a good APA that I could have again.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma interesting: getting some stale chocolate, malt, mash and grass. Very acidic. Bitterness up front. I wouldn’t call it smooth, although it doesn’t need to be... It just doesn’t have much else going on.

Opaque light brown pour from bottle. Aroma of caramel malts and metal. Flavor is malty and sugary. Backed with piney hop. A good one to pound in a big mug.

Copper color with a bubbly head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel malt and fresh grain. Underlying hop aroma. Well balanced flavor with a late hop bite. Pretty solid but ultimately forgettable.

On draught at The Pour House in Mountainhome, PA. Arrivd to the table a clear burnished gold with a sudsy white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. No real discernible aroma to speak of. The flavor is malt with some citrus hops at the finish. Medium bodied.
