3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy, dark gold. Nose of malt...lacks citrus typical of APA. Taste of sweet bready malt, followed by some muted bitterness. Almost like a cross between an APA and a pilsner. Very drinkable, but not all that interesting.

Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Light golden-copper color - very cloudy. Aroma is both malt and hops. Pretty good - both malty and hoppy, but with some esthery flavors.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and citrus. Taste is similar. Very easy to drink. Nice session APA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BOTM club. Pours a hazy golden orange with dissipating off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is faint, bready biscuit grains and a metallic twinge. Taste is better, slight hop presence up front, then a dry pale malt back. Decent, but nothing crazy.

Hazy golden pour. Off-white head. Not much to it. Some piny hops, light body, a bit of tartness. Eh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very light biscuity malt and citrus aroma. Hazy straw gold with a large off-white head. Fruity biscuit malt and light grassy bitter flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. Easy drinking, but rather bland.

Thanks, Marshall, for contributing this beer-of-the-month selection to our "balcony time." Slightly cloudy ruddy gold, thick rim head, specks of lace. Taste begins with dry malt, becomes more bitter through the palate, but doesn’t lose track of the fact its a pale ale. A little watery, but still quite satisfying. Good session ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange-golden with medium white head. Aroma malt and faint hops. Medium body, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor is very malty and probably too sweet, missing the crispness needed for this style.
