3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber color. Nice fruity aroma: mango and peach. The body is not very strong, anyway it’s quite malty, and the bitterness is pleasant, the hop partially fruity and aromatic. Easy but enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep redish amber color; little head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, a bit citrusy, and a hint of malt. Flavor is primarily malt, with some matching bitterness. Fruit is more grapefruit than other. More like a hoppy amber than a standard American pale. Good carbonation. Swishing makes it chewy/creamy. The finish is grapefruit bitter. Took a while to get there. Very drinkable.

"not a bad ale. it’s nice to get something other than a wheat beer from them. it doesn’t separate itself, but does the standard well, and therefore is a little better than average."

Dark copper color with a very large head which clings to the glass for a long time. Nose is a musty, nutty Fall-like hop aroma. Pale and bland throughout with some old apple and pear flavor, and a bit of biting hops towards the end. Drinkable but not very flavorful.
