Overall, Im still trying to figure out the hop character but whatever it is, they didnt use enough of it to warrant a hop flavor profile.

This alleged pale ale has a muzzle on, because it’s lacking the verbose complexity of some of its peers. Still, it’s a drinkable post-work brew that paddles over the tongue with ease. Decent nose and a super smooth, innocuous mouthfeel and we’re talking accessible and forgettable.

Orange-gold with a small steady white head. Citrus, pine and a bit of toffee in the aroma. Clean malty flavor with a mild bitterness. Crisp like a lager. overall quite refreshing.

From a 12-pack of Winter beers, this was the change of pace in the selection (not really a Winter seasonal). Alchemy hops are the brewery’s blend. They are more pine than citrus. I see they use Munich and Vienna grains. Neither in large quantities, but they give the beer a gorgeous copper color. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a little messy.

Pours a nice golden color with a small bit of white head. Loved the malts in this and the citrus of the hops. Very smooth drinker, hardly any bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at recent college tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some caramel, some grapefruity hops, some pine, and some mild citrus character. Flavor is similar- leaning towards the grapefruit hops, but some nice malt in there as well. Overall, a nice pale at 5.8%.
