3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a highly carbonated, dark yellow with a fair amount of head. The aroma is pears, malt, a little white grape thing going on, too. The flavor is mild and clean but pretty good. A mild, mellow malt on the finish is probably the defining characteristic. Pretty good pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Bottle pour into tulip glass from Leary’s Fine Wines, Newburyport, MA. Aroma is bread dough with caramel and mild pineapple. Appearance is hazy gold with nice sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with fair retention and nice lacing. Taste is mild sweet caramel malt, citrus and mild bitter finish. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin, dry texture you can feel at the back teeth. Overall, fairly mild all around. Not bad, just not very bold.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head that settles to a film leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is a nice combination of pine hops with a touch of citrus in the background. Medium body, the taste is a good balance of hops and malt. Lots of carbonation on the tongue. Slight bitter finish. Great pale ale, I’ll miss this one when it’s gone.

Drank this from a twelve ounce bottle poured into a nonic glass, thank you Danny! Smells strong of hops. Pours a beautiful, clear, copper color with plenty of carbonation, and plenty of white fluffy head. Tastes refreshing but too much hops.
