2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange brown pour with a small head. Floral, leather, citrus, herb and spice. Orange peel, light body, strong carbonation, light syrupy sweetness. More body and depth would better balance this beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Recently found notes.
Thanks Kate for sending.
Poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy orange color.
The smell had some pine, trying to be bitter, but seems fairly burnt
The taste was basically the same, but coming across in a weird weak sort of way. Uh...really weird aftertaste and finish, burnt breadiness??? - slightly.
The palate, well, it was pretty disappointing, lost toastiness - a ton of faded/muted hops building a dryness claiming my tongue and beating into submission.
Overall, not sure what happened here and if Kate sent this as a joke, but yeah, don’t think I’d want to try again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the pour this beer is overly carbonated. I had to stop mid pour to let the freaking head go down. Cloudy amber color with floaties. Almost no aroma, yeast is about all I get. Taste is not much better. No need to elaborate. Palate is on the watery side. Overall, it is my own damn fault. I went cheap at a big time beer store. You get what you pay for.

Totally bland! No aroma or taste. Cloudy amber color. No style id on label, so I bought thinking it was an IPA. But---it was a third rate pale ale.

Bottle. Sweet hoppy taste. Palate is marred by too much carbonation. Otherwise enjoyable.

bottle. Amber with small head. Mild hops and decent flavor in this pretty average pale ale. No off flavors, but nothing exceptional either.
