2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A bourbon beer should have a taste of bourbon, this just tastes like watered down bourbon. Pours an average amber color with very little head. Smells and tastes like bourbon, and nothing else. Had on tap at Billcos.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Btl pours crystal clear light orange-copper color. Thick off white head that dissipates quickly,leaving lots lacing on glass. Smells of tropical fruits, citrus and a faint pine aroma. Taste of sweet caramel, grapefruit and piney hops.Light to medium body, smooth slick texture, perfect carbonation and light bitter finish. Very nice, perfectly balanced pale with a crisp,clean,fresh hop flavor and a mild malt backbone. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Would be great on a hot summer day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Jungle Jims / Eastgate OH - Clear medium amber with a good 1/2" head, slim bands of lace. Taste is a little confusing - while not dominating, the hops are strongly present because there is very little malt backbone. Just a smidge of malt going in, then the rest is somewhat understated hops. A mild brew; nothing wrong here, just not much to work with. I don’t know how it can be 5.8% abv.

Bottle after running at the track. 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 ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 15:53:3-OCT 22-13. If that is an expiration date then I am a few months past it But the pour is handsome enough with its medium amber-bronze color and long lasting off-white head. The aroma is like any dozens of pale ales with its pale malts, mild sweetness, and clean hop note. The body is medium. The taste is relatively mild all in all with a good grainy malt character and clean, crisp hop finish. Overall this is a good pale ale that easily stands side by side with lots of other craft pale ales out there but does not stand out.

Caramel and flowery, pine hops in the aroma. Flavor is pretty mild given the aroma. A little spice and flowery hops in the aroma. Decent, but nothing special

Drought. Light amber with off-white creamy head, light floral aroma, floral hoppy taste, long hoppy finish. Nice balance, like an IPA.
