2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle/12oz - Pours a golden amber in color with a small white head that faded quickly. Aroma is not strong, but elements of toffee/caramel, estery fruits, some grassy hops and a slightly unpleasant "starchy" character. Flavor includes some bready yeast, toffee/carmel malts and grassy hops. The "starchiness" persists and greatly detracts from the experience... not good, from a brewer that can do *much* better...

Pours a orange yellow color with a floral aroma. Taste is fruity and light surprisingly light for a pale ale. Mild hoppy aftertaste which makes it drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours golden-orange with a white head that laces rather nicely. Aroma is peaches and biscuit with some caramel poking through. Flavor is citrus, pine, and caramel, finishing on a bitter earthy spice note. The body is fairly light with a decent amount of carbonation. Definately a sessionable pale.

Straight off the bat,fresh strong hop aroma and taste,good sessionablility. From a can it pours a lightly hazed pale orange, quick head,leaves some good lace. Fresh citrus floral and pine aromas. Very hoppy flavor with mild malts,light breadyness. Subdued carmel sweetness,light-light med body,surprising malt backbone on this session. I like this,nice hopppy light session beer. Had initial low expectations,its gooooood.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy banana yellow. Looks gorgeous. Thick swatch of icy white head/lace.
Aroma is hops that have, admittedly softened up a bit. (Best by date is January ’14, drank in August ’14.) Has that flowery, somewhat chlorine aroma. Perfectly pleasant.
The flavor has pillowy malts, pollen-y hops.
The feel is soft and creamy. It’s one of the better organic beers I’ve had, I have to say.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a gold yellow with a white foamy head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Taste starts citrusy sweet then turns slightly tart and bitter, but finishes sweetly balanced. Refreshing. Dry and crisp in the finish.

A lovely beer with citrus aroma and plenty of caramel notes. Nothing spectacular, but hey, organic has to count for something!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso in Georgetown. Dry, hoppy and sessionable golden beer with a lightly tart, fruity tang. Heart’s in the right place. Could use more malt backbone, and it could be done without sacrificing dryness or low abv. Could be cleaner, but this is a brewer’s beer, for enjoying during and after a long day over the tun and kettle.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma is kind of full of hops & floral scents. Appearance is a slightly cloudy burnt orange with basically no head. It does leave some nice lacing. The taste, however, is a different story. There’s some decent hop character up front but it’s followed by flavorless dryness. Essentially no taste after the initial hop front. I’m in no way, shape, or form a fan.
