3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours somewhere between amber and straw, slightly hazy with 1 finger of densely bubbled head, some visual effervescence, and great retention. Aroma is light tropical citrus, light toast, and an underlying resin backbone. Taste is tangerine, clementine, fruity toast, and a slightly sweet orange-y finish. Body is light, below average carbonation, thin mouthfeel, dry refreshing finish. Overall, a pretty good beer for 4%abv. Fairly straightforward with just enough complexity to make it interesting. High quaffability.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden color, slight haze, medium-thin white head. Pleasing floral and grass aroma as well as grapefruit. Taste isnít overly sweet or bitter, light balance there. Light body, below ave carbonation, light bitter and tart finish. Overall its decent and interesting, could use a little more bite.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral hops with a nice grapefruit bite up front. A touch of orange peel which adds to the moderate bitterness of the beer. Toasted malts and bread give a decent amount of sweetness. One of my favorite session pales.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light orange amber with a slight haze and some bubbles coming up from the bottom. Very scant head of white foam that fell quickly to a thin film and ring. Some soapy wet lace. Nose is very light. Gentle citrus and noble hops. Floral and herbal. Some cracker and biscuit on the nose. Soft hint of melon. Drinks really well. Itís an earthy cracker malt that starts you off and travels the palate quickly. The citrus, not tart and not really sweet either, make the drink mouthwatering and thirst quenching. It drinks quickly and very light with a watery mouthfeel and some spritzy carbonation. Settles in back with a slight bitter and herbal.
This was a nice very low abv pale ale that gives the all day ipa a run for itís money. This one is the winner with certified organic ingredients and a light refreshing taste that doesnít taste watered down. The noble hop character is not loud with intense fruit flavors but it is strong in itís own way and earthy. If itís a touch off balance it towards the malty side and has plenty of cracker on the back palate. Drinks very easily and great for a hot day.

12oz bottle: sweet aroma of citrus and pine. Pours a light yellow with a thin white head. Flavor is mild with just enough hop to make it interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
had from a bottle at zillies in ocracoke. suprised this one was rated so low. Itís a decent pale ale- kind of mellow. good session beer. Pours a light orangy color- slightly hazy. decent head. nicely balanced- bit of hoppiness to the finish but mellow. could have a bit more hop to it, but it doesnít need it. flavors stand up on their own. Had it in the same session as Lagunitas Pale- totally different, but not worse, necessarily. Just a bit more subdued. Like Utah.

Draft sample at 2013 Cincinnati Brew Ha Ha festival. Dark gold color, nice fruity/hoppy nose, very thin body, light bittersweet flavor. Graded leniently due to possible tapping problem and/or festival taste fatigue. Tasted on August 24, 2013.

Decent session ale... I enjoyed its light, subtle, nuances.. Delicate aromas and flavors of peach and apricot.. Good color and lacing.. Nice, light, easy drinking weight and texture.. Perfect carbonation for style.. Solid (for a session beer)
--- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

A little hops, a little barley...nothing special. Yellow color, decent creamy head. Below average.
