4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve only had 2 or 3 of this breweries beers, but they have all been solid. This one has a nice golden appearance. You think a buttery aroma would be strange on a beer, but it’s really mellow and is very nice. The flavor is hoppy and smooth. I can just picture having one of these swinging on the porch of a country house on a breezy summer day in the shade.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. The color is bronze amber with a decent silky head and good clarity. Toasted pale malts lead off the aroma along with sweet caramel and low hop bitterness. The body is medium. The taste is sweet to begin with a light bitterness at the end that was not as expected given the aroma. But I found it to be a great pale ale.

12 ounce bottle from Grain and Vine in decent quality plastic cup. Light copper with head and lace. Orangey peppery aroma. Medium sweet apricot peach with nice spicy yeasty peppery hop finish. Medium effervescent body. Really a decent beer, especially for the price.

I had this one a few minutes ago. I’ve only tried the Black Shack Porter before. This one of the better ales I have come across in this country.

A nice light, smooth beer. I would love to have this beer with pasta or just to compliment a sunny day.

Beatiful deep orange color with a sturdy white head, which is quick to disappear. Complex aroma: raspberry dominates with hints of lemon and other citrus phenols (some apple perhaps?). This beer is light bodied an refreshing with raspberry undertones throughout the slightly acidic flavour. Well done!

An enjoyable, rich aroma. The body isn't bitter in the least, and yet is fairly malty. Bronze colored, this brew is fairly sweet and pleasant. A blond ale indeed, and an extremely enjoyable one boasting some grassy, herbal notes.

Nice body and color, pours like a nice ale. Lightly hopped. Little bit of peach or nectarine. Was as fresh as a load of laundry out of the dryer,
