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.

Bottle given to me by the host of the Super Bowl party I attended. Clean malt bill with some wheaty dryness. Solid, clean pale ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light amber brew with small head that faded fast. Smells of lemon and citrus. Taste is citrus with a hint at some pine every once in a while. Kinda watered down and not much to really make me want more. Just a boring ale that I will not be picking up again. There are much better pale ales for the same price or less.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. can. Appearance: small white head that diminishes quickly, orange to golden yellow, clear, Aroma: lemony citrus, bread, caramel, hay, resin. Palate: light body, light feel, lively carbonation, slight bitter finish that lasts a couple seconds. Taste: malty sweetness at first, but mostly a light bitter taste. Overall, too bready for me and just not that enjoyable.
