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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 doesn’t blend well with the malt, but it tastes pretty good. Creative and the best I’ve had to date from the Four+ line.

On tap at Uinta. This beer is much better on tap than bottled.
Nice golden color with a white head, leaves a light lace on the glass. Floral aroma and citrus taste. Plenty of simco hops, well balanced beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Aroma of a metal vat and some what stale. Yellow body with white head. At first a real good tart lemon zip and refreshing. But by middle to finish stale metal taste was there and wow two beers in one bottle. Odd.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a one finger snow white head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is malt, light citrus and grain. The taste is grain, light caramel malt, and some fruity hops in the back end that finishes slightly bitter. Medium mouthfeel. Better than most organic pales I’ve had, as there’s always some “off” about them.

Pours a nice golden color with a small white head. Aroma is malt, touch of hops, grains, water. Flavor is malt, water, biscuit, touch of hop bitterness and a little caramel and spices. Decent for a pale lager.
