1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Keg at Bishops Arms Hamngatan, Gothenburg. Hazy pale golden, small head. Clumsy cardboard nose. Sweet, medium bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Fairly low bitterness. Useless junk.

Widmer bros gargle my nuts. I hope they go bankrupt. Once again a semi-giant in "the business" is throwing their "gravity" around for NO GOOD REASON!!!!!!!

This is a good, inoffensive pale ale. There is a hint of caramel in the aroma. It’s got a smooth finish, with a mildly bitter aftertaste. It has a grainy taste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Sprenger’s. Bright deep gold, smallish white head. Pleasant sweet tea scent at a very low level. Flavor starts promisingly, bringing coolly balanced warm malts and herbal goodnesses, but nothing to focus on, and an unfortunate swampy bit cropped up early and I can’t shake it. Medium body and a slightly salty finish.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorite. None of the notes are over-powering. It’s a nice blending and good balance of the ingredients. Not too hoppy, not too fruity or spicy. Served best in a frosty mug at 34degrees.

Poured a deep gold/amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma was of piney and citrusy hops. Taste was similar - piney and citrus (grapefruit) w/ a decent malt background. Mouth was pretty good - nice density. Overall, a decent pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Widmer Brothers/Red Hook/Kona variety summer 12 pack purchased at Western Hills Kroger, tasted on September 21, 2013. Moderate amber color with good clarity, bittersweet aroma with interesting tropical/pineapple notes, medium flavor heavy on the fruit, hops come in at the end. This beer is OK but I hardly think any mysterious alchemy is responsible for its creation--if the commercial deScription was part of my rating, the score would be much lower.

An average, nice, middle-of-the-road, clean pale ale with nothing too exciting going on. High expectations, low patience. Common.
