3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer smells terrible- unlike its hoppier cousins and isn’t an amazingly attractive pour, but the Drifter remains my favorite pale ale. Balanced and full-bodied for this beer style. Not for hop-lovers.

Not bad, neither something to remember as a special one. Was good, somewhat creamy and not boring.

A nice and smooth pale ale. Better than I expected. Crisp with and straight forward. There's a distinct, unique flavor I'm having trouble identifying. Subtle but present hop character.

Beautiful strong floral, hoppy aroma. Clear appearance and despite the strong aroma the hops really don’t kick you in the head, perfect level of hops for a pale ale. Well worth a gargle if you haven’t tried it yet!

Bottle. Nice looking maroon brew with a small white head. Nose is faint hops, some earthy notes. It has some nice caramel flavors, but they’re "complemented" by stale, old tasting hops. Maybe this was really old, but regardless, it tastes like it’s long past its prime.

Draught at Beer Authority NYC sept 2012. Clear amber beer with a small offwhite head. Fruity and hoppy aroma. Hoppy and some strange artificiell flavour. Not a nice tasting beer....

Pours amber with no head. Aroma of citrusy hops and milled grain. Taste is very citrusy, slightly bitter. Light and refreshing. Nothing special but really drinkable.

This was a pleasant surprise. Nose is sweet citrus. Taste is malty with an orange to grapefruit sweetness. Medium body that lingers to only a slight hop finish. Taste of baked bread at the end. I could drink this one regularly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some floral fruitiness, some piney - grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some floral fruitiness, some piney and light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light caramel and some floral fruitiness, some piney - some citrus hoppyness. OK hoppyness but too much caramel for me/not dry enough.
