3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Just enough Munich malt to remind me of an Oktoberfest hangover. First had this beer at Bonnaroo in 2005, and it doesn’t seem to taste quite the same now (I can’t imagine why). It has enough hop profile to keep me entertained, but I generally like my beer like I prefer my 420: more dank/more piney/more citrus + grapefruit.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is hop driven. The taste is bitter hops. A solid beer.

Solid hop aroma with a fruity and bubbly backbone. A very drinkable pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
BBD 5/29/16. Almost clear, light cloudiness, golden pour with a touch of amber and garnet. Quite outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention.
Very light nose of mixed citrus with a touch of spice. With a name of 420, one would expect a dank nose. This one is not.
Light body that has a smooth element. Good carbonation for the body with just enough mid effervescence and a prickly finish.
The flavor profile is average - not bad, but not quite solid either. Intensity, complexity and balance are adequate resulting in a tasty pale ale but nothing really pops. It begins with a blended hop flavor that has subtle citrus notes then flows to a very mildly bittered middle. A hint of sweetness arrives to balance an equally weak bitterness. The finish is a slow fade of light hop flavor and bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden yellow with fluffy head. Aromas of fruity hops and some citrus peel. Flavors of light hops, a little astringent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Descent hop aroma with light malt backing. Mix of piney and citrus hops. Light overall but good balance of malt and hops. Not bad at all for an all around flavorful lighter beer.

Bottle. Light citrus aroma. Buttery, dry and slightly sweet. Not bad but it doesn’t fire the imagination.
