2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My friend Chris has owned nothing but Golden Retrievers for the past 15 years, but he’s no fan of this one - it may have been inbred and most likely needs it’s hips replaced. It could be a faithful companion, but the aftertaste is what offended me. The body was medium, malty and an ok hops level, not much aroma.

pretty good pale ale, but a bit too mild.

Lasting hops flavor and good malt balance. Definitely different than the typical APA in the ratio of malt in the mix. Worth another try.
