Bottle at The Brickskeller, Washington DC
Hazy blond color. Strange aroma: dirty water, hazelnuts, very light vanilla, light orange peel, yellow grapes; interesting. The mouthfeel is weak, the flavor is poor, quite dry, quite bitter, with a touch of citrus. Below average.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Wine and Beer Westpark, 12/14/09
Aroma: It has some sweet citrus, some grass, a bit of honey, some cereal
Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a bubbly white head and drippy lace
Flavor: Fairly mild, has some light sweetness with a funky grassy bitterness
Palate: This beer is pretty light and thin, with soft carbonation
This beer is alright, not a ton going on, fairly mild on all assets, but not bad. I didnít love it but it is works as a session beer. Hereís the truth, this isnít anything special, but itís still a decent beer, has a little flavor, worth drinking, though it isnít totally memorable. It is clean and refreshing at least

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Porter Beer Bar. Not sure if this is the beer or the glass it is coming in but the aroma of this thing is very off with a buttery and funkiness that is a little off putting considering the style. A little bit of citrusy bitterness in the flavor and a decently smooth malt profile give a little bit of legitimacy to the drink. Aside from the aroma this is a decently drinkable session beer with enough to keep you interested for a while.

Bottle shared by argo0 6/28/08: Pours a transparent bronze with a thin-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh piny hops and some lightly grainy pale malts. Body starts lightly sweet and pale malty with a touch of sugar and crispy piny hops before a smooth finish. A pretty well-balanced and drinkable pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light tangerine and asparagus aroma. Cloudy amber, fine floaties, no head. Delicious orange peel and tangerine flavor. Light bodied. Malty pine needle finish. Excellent selection and use of hops doesnít blend well with the malt, but it tastes pretty good. Creative and the best Iíve had to date from the Four+ line.
