3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
NIce caramel and hop aroma, slightly smoky. Hazy copper color, medium off white head, good lacing. Ashy hop flavor with a lemon twist. Bark and hop finish. Very well balanced. It’s rather earthy which I really like.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Last of the Tap Room beers.
This one at least has a nice enough appearance, though dark for a Pale.Its dark amber with a nice enought tan head.
Aroma mostly malty, with very little else to describe.
Tste mainlly malts, semi-bitter, buttery somewhat and tofeeish, but it doesnt last long and by the end of the mouthful it turns towater.
Thin and watery palate.
Slightly the best of the three, it comes a cross more as an English Pale to me.

What a joke. Avoid this beer! Budweiser’s distant step-brother in every way except this one uses pretentious and expensive packaging.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a bright copper color with thin off-white head that lingers through most of the glass, but leaves little lacing. Aroma is a grassy hop, with a hint of citrus fruit and the mouthfeel is tingly and somewhat bitter. The flavor is a continuation of the grassy hops, but the fruit flavor is not present. Initial finish is good, but it tends to be a little stale as at mid-beer.
This would makle a better session beer than a sit down-sip-enjoy beer.

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle: Bronze, light white head, light lacing. Nose of dusty wood and light spicy earthy hops, some chemical. The flavor is like bile with the bitterness and some really funky oyster shell/ocean note. Funky. Mosquito spray maybe? Awful and gagable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle: A definite hop characteristic in the aroma, a slight grainy scent, a light skunk (nothing big like a pilsiner but it’s very faint), and kind of fruity overtone. Appearance is a clear amber pour with a medium sized really fizzy carbonated head that diminishes into a soapy off white head. Taste is a rather artificial tasting caramel overtone, really weird tasting off the bat. the hop aroma is present within the taste too. The taste is really off putting. Strange, tinny and artificial. Palate is slightly carbonated, with a lingering light bitterness that persists. Overall, I had two of these a couple days ago and thought they were actually pretty good. I had to revisit it for a rating, because I was so surprised with this beer. Damn I was wrong.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2007 Bottle. Pours an amber color with small off white head. The aroma is very hoppy with light grass notes. The taste is a sweet hops with a spicy finish. A decent pale ale.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice, highly active amber with a quick-fading head. Aroma is a nice, musty attic hops and malt. Flavor is coppery malt. Average mouthfeel. Not disgusting, but a definite session beer.
