3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Viilage Wine and Spirits in Athens. Grainy nose, light weeds, and some flowers. Clear amber color. Very light caramel initial / tiny streams of hopping / mild and balanced and then very small hop tracks. Thin, with some hop body. Okay. Hopping is a touch high for this light style -- but I see that they want this to be an IPA (it’s not). But tasty and very sessionable stuff.

Great session beer. Slightly hazy amber - gold with little white head. Citrus, pine, and malty caramel aromas. Slight caramel sweetness,light body. Pleasant, refreshing bitterness. Paired it with burger and it was terrific.

Nice earthy aroma with orange and oak. Good copper color. Nice bitter taste with hints of pine and slight citrus aftertaste. The organic barley gives a unique flavor but does not derive from the quality of the beer

Can. Amber with an off white head that fades fast. Florals, hops, light earth, and fresh. Nice palate, very clean and we’ll balanced, hops are main focus but not overkill.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slope-shouldered Anchor-type bottle. Odd label, reminds me of the anatomical charts from middle school. Medium, slightly misty brew, thin white head with frogs’ eggs. Inviting, hoppy, AIPA aroma. Interesting flavor, almost had a popcorn thing going on - perhaps it was palate shock following the last beer and I wouldn’t have tasted that in isolation, but that’s the impression that I have right now. Hoppy, but not ruthless. Burps pine. Medium to slightly heavy body. Balanced, not a ham-handed AIPA. Clean finish. Slightly sweet, grapefruity aftertaste. ABC, Betton.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold with little head. Aromas of grass and pine. Flavors of mild malts and light bitter piney hops. OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a teku glass. Pours a hazy copper with a fluffy white head of foam. The aroma has notes of peaches and thyme. The taste lends the sweetness and spice from the peach and thyme notes, but has a bread bit about mid palate. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation.

I live here I’m biased but this is a great session pale ale. Has the body of a full strength and all the flavor too.
