2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber colored, with decent head. Very sharp aroma (rye?). Hops as well. Flavor is sugar sweet, but not really malty, with quite a dry hops kick--much more hoppy than I had expected. Very flat. An odd beer.

Another nice one from Uncle Billy’s. Orange color, citrusy hoppy flavor, nice level of bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From sampler- aroma of hops and possibly honey, pleasing. Light transparent orange color. Hit the mouth with medium body, hops from taste to finish, finish a bit short in length. A slightly above average pale ale...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Nice hoppy apricot hints in the aroma. Average amber color. Nice bitterness. Taste hints of orange in this. There is also an earthiness about this beer I can’t quite put my finger on. I’d have again.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2008 Re-Rate -
Crisp amber color, A noticeable lightly floral hoppy aroma with a hint of honey sweetness. Taste was a good bitter, hoppiness, with a medium length finish. On the hoppier end of pales I’d say, and was quite vibrant and flavorful. A quality pale ale for sure.

Only ordered a sampler of this as I know I’ll go back for more and hell, I hadda be able to drive. Delightful aroma (yes, even my damaged sinus passages allowed for this). Crisp, light(er) in color - oh yeh, it’s a pale ale. Very much looking forward to more of this - when I’m not drinking the IPA or hefe.
Have I mentioned two dollar pints on Tuesday?
