3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Body toward the lighter side of the style, lots of bubbles, and a decent, frothy head. Not a big hop nose to start, but a good malty smell with some bitterness. Taste shows it to be very sessionable. It’s more of a standard pale ale with American hops than an überhoppy Alpha King type. Mostly malts over a bed of decidedly piney Pacific hops. Interesting variation that won’t frighten the newbies away.
Bottle pour. Clear orange with a short lasting white head. Aroma is orange and sweet malts. Medium somewhat creamy body. Sweet with a light salty finish.

Garrrafa @ Xi’an Craft Beer Festival. Coloracao ambar, espuma com boa formacao e baixa duracao. No aroma malte, fermento, mel e frutas citricas (pessego tambem talvez?). Sabor inicial adocicado com lupulos ao fundo dando um final amargo. Corpo leve, retrogosto levement amargo e duradouro. Refrescante, boa drinkability. tricksta_p (5146) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2016

The scent of malt is really faint here. I took a few deep whiffs and caught some orange peel in there, but again, really faint. The brew is a pale amber, a shade deeper than a pilsner gold. The head is white and thins pretty quickly. The taste is pretty clean, not very dynamic, but it has a lightly sweet singularity. It is paler than pale, lighter than light. It’s crisp, tastes fine, but there’s not much character. There’s mild carbonation burn on the palate with every sip, but it’s not bad. There’s a thing filminess left behind. Not bad, but only a little more interesting than a Coors Banquet Beer. Theydon_Bois (20628) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
