3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It gets an overall 14/20, which is pretty much my go-to rating for a standard hoppy pale ale that doesn’t have anything special about it. It’s good, but there are a lot of very similar brews available for cheaper than $10 for 6, but I still wanted to try it because Fountain Square’s amber and porter were so good.
Rated on 9-07-2016 at Deer Park Irish Pub, Fort Wayne, IN. The appearance of this draft beer when served is a very small beige head that is fully lasting, hazy amber body, very little carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, light pine hops and caramel malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, light citrus hops, lightly bready, and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is smooth with soft carbonation. This beer is light-medium bodied. This is drinkable and has a light-mild bitter aftertaste. A so-so APA that has nothing very outstanding about it. alexsdad06 (10421) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Sampled at HopCat Indy. Pours a dark golden/light amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale toasted malts, light caramel, hay, some earthy notes, pretty bland pale. GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle from friends. Pleasant enough. Kind of citrusy and sharp. Nothing special though. A bit spritzy in the body. Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2016
From sampler flight at the brewery on March 26, 2016. Medium gold color, aroma that’s mostly sweet citrus, taste adds hops to the citrus. Flavors could be better integrated but not a bad brew. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2015
355ml bottle. Golden pour, light haze. Instantly malty aroma, 90s pale ale. Flavor is dougy, toasted caramel, malty, why?
