2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewery. Clear amber-brown with a short white head. Maltly aroma is crunchy crystal malt / cereals / grape nuts, caramelized sugar, peanuts; hops are expressed as fruit cocktail, orange, herbs, spice, wood. Medium body (richer than expected for 5.5 pale ale), sticky, chewy, bitter, lightly astringent. Pretty generic pale ale with a lot of crystal malt character and muted / unclear hop expression. Not very interesting.

14 oz nonic type draft at the brewery tasting room in Golden, Colorado. The pour is clear golden orange with a small white head. The aroma is citrus floral along with a hint of cracker malt. The taste is fresh, lightly cracker malt sweet, floral citrus hops and a bit of soap near the back. The palate is light bodied with soft carbonation and the soapy finish. The flavors integrated nicely as the beer warmed.
