1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a coppery color with a 1.5" head with decent retention.
Aromas of roasted specialty malts, biscuit, butter, faint American hops.
Flavor is medium body malts with slight roastiness and American hop flavor with an adequate bitter finish for a pale ale. All flavor is overwhelmed by diacetyl (butter) from either a flawed brewing process, yeast, or both. Mouthfeel is thick and leaves a sticky residue.
Overall this is closest to a shipyard pale ale which are known for diacetyl in their beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
FROM NOTES: July 1, ’12
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle.
A: Light citrus hops on the nose with bready, toasted and caramel malts. A: Pours a murky dark orange or light brown color with a two fingers off white head and moderate carbonation. Head lasts a few minutes with no lacing left on the glass.
T: Some fruity malt notes show up, along with the light citrus hops, bready malts, toasted malts, caramel malts, faint note of oranges, and some light pine hops. Finished with a tiny bit of bitterness and more hops than the nose, but still pretty average.
P: Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.
O: An average beer. Lots of malts and not enough of a hop flavor. Not a bad beer, but just not remarkable. I wouldn’t turn down a free one...
