3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a half finger of head on a clear, dark copper colored body.
The aroma is a good, if faint, grain and malt smell.
The taste is fairly bland. A touch of sweetness.
The texture is too fizzy with a crisp texture.
At 4.8% and no real flavor you could go to town on these and not be offended.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper body with a short white head. Caramel malt aroma. Thin palate. Lightly malty flavor, slightly bready and even more faint caramel sweetness with muted, mild but typical pale ale aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Aroma of caramel and crackers. The taste is about as one dimensional as a beer can get. Slightly malty, very little hop character. Has a crisp finish. I would classify it as an amber. Nothing offensive here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma of earthy hops and caramel malt. Flavor mirrors aroma. Not much bitter just sweet malt. A not so fresh bottle I donít think. An ok beer

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the 76 station in Davis, CA. Pours a copper color with a fruity aroma. No real hop present, but a easy to drink malty beer. Notes of caramel and overall sweet malt flavor. I was pleasantly surprised.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is bready malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with raisin and metallic in the finish. Meh

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A sweet pale ale that's sure to please most with its mellow hop character and up front barley. Abrupt rather than lingering, as I think the best pales are

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured a clear copper hue w/ a white head quickly diminishing to a thin cap and excellent lacing. Moderate aroma of malt and sweet caramel. Initial flavor is a light sweet with a moderate bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are bready malts, caramel and light citrus notes. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, and a light dry finish. It is a good beer, just not a complex one. It is like a good piece of toast, you arenít going to get excited about toast, but sometimes when your eating you want a piece of toast to go with the meal.

From tap. Pours a ruby color with small head. Aroma was mildly malty and slighty sweet. Taste was caramel, sweet malt and slight bitterness. More sweet and not balanced. Mild for an ESB.
