3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from Ales by Mail
Enjoy by Dec 02 2013 - Pours clear dark copper colored with a smooth white head. Aroma of caramely malts, hints of crisp grassy hops, metallic notes and some citrus. Taste is malty, caramely, crisp and slightly hoppy with hints of grass and metallic notes. Finish is sweetish, malty and caramely with hints of hoppiness. Quite malty and heavy for an APA, not that refreshing or hoppy. A bit unbalanced.

Lovely little beer. Light and grainy, leads onto a slight wet hop finish with a dash of vanilla on the tongue. Intetesting.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap. Straw-colored clear beer, persistent small head and decent lacing. OK smell, nothing too special, a little "rough". Overrated taste. Basic pale ale, nothing too fancy. Bitter, a little hop oil, kind of pleasant. Nothing bad in it , it’s got a light palate for a pale ale. Pretty good.

A happy order mixup scored me a bottle of this. All hops on the nose, really smooth and refreshing mouthfeel, if not a bit one note. Pretty light behind the hops, easy to drink, but not too complex.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber slightly orange tinged with a 2 finger off-white head.
Smells of some bready malt, citrus, pine and some grass.
Very malt forward at first, but rounds into a pine/grass hop flavor finishing a bit bitter and dry. More bitter than your average APA and a bit sweeter than I prefer.
Mouthfeel and carbonation are both at good levels.
Very easy sessionable brew. Not the best I’ve ever had, but in the mood for something a bit lighter with dinner it did the trick.
