Nice amber hue, small lacey head. Sweet malty backbone, citric and veggie flavor. Biiterness not overwhelming but well balanced. East drinking beer.

Hazy golden color with a fluffy off white head. Light cookie dough, mild grapefruit and celery aroma. Spanish peanuts and cookie dough flavors. Reminds me of an APA but lighter and lacking malt depth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy bright gold. Nose hoppy, citrus and pine. Taste is pretty average, cirtic burst up front, good malts backing it up, somewhat toasty and nutty. Do like the palate, has a nice, stickyk creaminess to it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 Head was a frothy white with some lacing while drinking. The hops were balanced with a mild maltiness. About average for the Pale Ales that I have had. Had another from Total Wine and More in April 2011. The color was a hazy gold with a head that laced down the glass. The pale ale was weeak in the floral hops and lacked character. It had a light body and alcohol was well balanced with the malts.

This is just your basic generic pale ale. Nothing lacking, nothing special.

This is not one of my everyday drinkers but a nice change. Light in body, citrussy, with an an orange and tea like flavor. It doesn't bite like most California pales but it's tastey and refreshing.

One of my favorite APA's. Spicy, citrusy hops flavoring is complex but not overwhelming. Hints of orange with a peachy, malt follow. Carbonation is perfect - I'd really like to try this one on tap.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice peach colored body with a tall foamy white head. Nose is hops but has a nice spice character along with some orange peel, perhaps. Nice taste as well. Some lighter hop character, for the style, along with some spice, malt, and fruit. This is well balanced, as Sham pointed out. Very drinkable beer. Pleasant taste and finish. Very smooth. Recommended! Great beer!

Light gold pour with a frothy white head. Hop aromas are most prevalent. Some malt, though not much. Malt and hops are pretty well balanced in the flavors. Smooth palate and a bitter finish make this a nice pale ale.
