3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-pours bright amber copper hue with a fluffy soapy white head with decent lacing. nose of carmel malts, lite apples, lite musty pine and some toasted malt notes. not much to speak of on the nose-smells somewhat offensive, especially for a beer that is supposed to be dry hopped. flavors are pretty much dead on from the nose-mushy malt, lite hops and some apple skins. this is pretty boring however, this beer maybe a bit on the old side. however, consideing the brewery, it would still suck if it was fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber with a smallish white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.
The aroma is sweet toasted caramel malts and green apple with a little resiny hop.
The flavor is sweet biscuity caramel malts with some fruity slightly resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.
Overall, a decent pale ale. A bit to toasty/biscuity for my tastes but with nice hops.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. stiff and rough caramel malt and browned apple nose, two things I absolutely can’t stand in beer. I’m perplexed that they call this 5.6% a session ale, which I wouldn’t have guessed, and that it’s been dry-hopped - also would not have guessed. it’s more of a run of the mill amber ale with stewed oatmeal and barley and red apple skins and crunchy bran cereal. cracklin’ oat bran amber ale. funny enough it smells and tastes like a lot of Mikkeller beers.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much to get excited about. Pouts amber with a white head. The aroma is malt, bread, a hint of caramel. The flavor is similar with a bit of hops to balance.

Love the malt profile of this beer, but I had an expectation of a much more intense hop aroma.
