3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Just added this one, so I’ll be the first to rate it as well.
Location: On tap at the Brewpub, 1/22/10
Aroma: Nose is somewhat subtle, some spice and earth hops
Appearance: A burnt caramel/brown color with almost no head
Flavor: This beer is medium-high bitter, minimal sweetness
Palate: Very smooth beer with a nice mouthfeel, carbonation is very soft (almost flat)
A very smooth and dry Pale Ale (leaning in the direction of an IPA). A bit one-dimensional, as the earthy spice hop flavor is really the dominant component to this beer, but it is not bad.
**Rating #1111 for me, which is a useless piece of information that only I would find interesting.
