3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty dark for a pale ale, aint’cha? Pours a beautiful, deep ruby, with a small but delliciously creamy off-white head.
Clean malt and hop. Caramel malts.
Flavor likewise very clean, with mild malts and hops. Perhaps faintly minerally.
Moderate carbonation, clean mouthfeel, medium-light body.
Clean, well made, refreshing, but perhaps a bit boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled at Enya, Nikko. Clear amber, creamy head. Floral hops covering toffeeish malt. Fairly light bodied with enough caramel to cover any edges. Cleaner finish with crystal malt and low bitterness. Quite unremarkable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
An unbalanced light amber brew with caramel, peaches and strawberries and a light sour finish. No thanks.
