3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a foamy white head and high carbonation. The aroma is piney and the taste has plenty of hop bitterness. The body has a moderate malt presence with a bit of sweetness in the middle but the finish is rather dry and bitter. This brew is packaged as an irish ale but more so resembles an american pale ale. But that’s not a problem considering it’s a very nice representation of the style. I hope to see more offering from Wild Onion in the near future. If you haven’t already, check out their pumpkin ale.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can.
It pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy off-white head.
The smell is pretty good, it has a nice bit of citrus hops.
The flavor is decent but could be better It has a light bitterness to go with a malty base. The hops are basic with hints of pine, herbs, and citrus.
It isn’t a bad brew, nothing special however.
Serving type: can

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 3/5/11 from a 12oz can. Pours hazy dark orange with a a thick white head that slowly recedes to thick and rocky lace. The nose is some pale hay and cereal malt along with a bit of grass, light resin and citrus fruit as well. The flavor is more bitter than the nose would have suggested starting off with a bit of malt sweetness, and moving into the grassy hay, citrus, and resin bitterness. The body is fairly light with average carbonation and a long resin bitter and orange peel finish.

Average carbonation. Crystal malt, hops, citrus finish is dry. A decent APA.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blah. A boring and one dimensional APA. Aroma was weak. Could pick up lemon and light malt. Pour was a decent hazy orange with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was a lot hoppier than most APAs and that was welcome. The problem was the beer was very thin, the bitter hoppiness seemed to turn to water after the swallow. There is an astringent bitterness left on the back of the tongue after each sip. Decent carbonation. Nothing I would drink again.
