2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared by jcwatts at his casa. Porued a fuller orange body with a foamy white head. Aroma was sweet, lots of malts here for a pale ale. Notes of dough, paste, grains and some plastic. Medium bodied with softer carbonation. Flavor of dough, rainsin bran flakes, and some old sweet raisins. This is a pale ale. awfully sweet in my eyes.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
No bottling information.
Appearance: This is too dark of a color for my liking being a dark amber, near brown body. The head is thin and light tan with mediocre retention, it dissipates into a messy coating.
Aroma: The aroma is very mild and inoffensive, hints of sweet citrus and floral aromas. I wish it were stronger.
Taste: The flavor is very inoffensive, like the aroma, and also very bland. Malts are the main flavor here, providing a slightly sweet base with some caramel. The hops add almost no bitterness, just there to balance the sweetness, mostly providing subtle floral flavors, light citrus, and a very light spice on the finish.
Palate: Medium body with ample carbonation.
Overall: Nothing really to note here, it’s a mediocre pale ale that’s likely brewed with the mainstream palate in mind. This needs a more robust hop presence, even if only slightly.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
An average example of the style. Nice amber with a slightly off white head. The aroma was a bit disappointing. Not much to speak of really. A bit of floral hops and a bit of malt. The flavor was a little better with the hops taking control over a nice malty base. Good beer but nothing out of the ordinary which is a good thing.
