3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very little aroma from this slightly cloudy medium yellow/amber body with a nice white head. Taste is more like an amber ale than a pale ale with a good roasted malt flavor and some light buttery caramel sweetness. Hops are earthy and pungent and appropriately strong for the flavor. Body is a bit watery but not terribly. Ends with a woody, slightly bitter taste that lingers and is very tasty. A very nice beer overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, biscuit into a bit of yeast, hints of slight dough into a bit of grain. Taste was a mix of grass, grain, some earth into a bit of biscuit, bread, some yeast, finishing fairly dry, slightly bitter. Not really much flavor, but relatively refreshing after driving for 7 hours.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Springdale UT.
Nose is a pretty straight SN pale ale clone, flavor follows but dialed back a bit as befits the 4% ABV. Easy drinking and quite tasty with a nice hop snap that doesn’t leave one with a mouth of hop pellet afterward. Solid.

Aroma is light caramel and a hint of citrus hops. Appearanc eis hazy copper with tiny off white head. Taste is light caramel and hop bitterness. Minerally water flavor and a hint of citrus aroma hopping. Palate is medium light and crisp. Overall this beer is pretty boring. Nothing really stands out. Drinkable I guess.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Sheraton in SLC, complimentary happy hour, can’t complain about that. Medium orange amber, slight head. Aroma moderately of caramel, citrus, and pine. Flavor matches. A bit lacking in "oomph," probably as a result of the 3.2 beer laws. But not bad considering it is very sessionable.
