look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance is a nice cloudy amber with a fair head that dissapates thin leaving good lace. Smell has that sweet malt with citrus and grain. Tastes as it smells with light saline and moderate hops leaving a fairly clean finish. Mouthfeel is low medium with good carbonation. A little more backbone would round it off reel nice.

22 oz. bomber poured into a straight pint glass.

A: The beer pours a slightly cloudy light golden orange color with a small head of fluffy white foam. There is thick lacing which eventually slides down the sides of the glass back into the beer.

S: 509 has a nice light fruity aroma with a touch of grain and caramel.

T: The flavor is pretty close to the aroma. There's a nice citrus taste with a balt of grainy malt. Just a touch of bitterness at the end but for the most part incredibly smooth.

M: Pretty standard medium level carbonation with a light, slightly dry mouth feel.

O: Definitely a tasty session beer with high drinkability. Nothing spectacular but very solid.

Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is a nice lemon, orange and pine mixture.
The taste a quick bitter lemon with orange sweetness on top.
The texture is crisp.
A nice and easy drinking beer.

Appears light golden orange with a small white head.

It smells slightly fruity, slightly citrus like, and a little grainy.

It tastes much like it smells: there is a nice mild fruity citrus flavor that is balanced by a mild malty flavor. There is an ever so slight bitterness in the finish of this beer. This is not a complicated beer but it is a nice easy to drink beer that is smooth.

The carbonation is around medium.

The drinkability is good this is a good session beer I could drink quite a few of these.

Overall a nice easy drinking beer. This is not a groundbreaking beer but it is well made easy to drink and tasty. Recommended if you want a nice simple beer that tastes good.

Pint consumed at the 2/7 Alehouse in Spokane.

Poured a golden/amber color, with an inch or so of off-white foam. Lots of lace.

Smelled of floral hops and biscuity malts.

Not too hoppy tasting, this is more of a session pale ale, almost English. There's just enough hop flavor to balance out the malts.

Very drinkable beer. I stuck with this for a couple more with no regrets.

Advertised as a Session Beer, at 5%

Cloudt yellow with a hint of peach, very minimal head. Looks like a slightly think lager

Sweet malty backbone, nice and light straw in there too. Smells somewhat "creamy" if that makes sense. I don't get too much hops in there at all, and certainly no pine. Slightly floral.

Tastes as it smells. Nothing overpowering, nothing overwhelming, just a good ale.

Smooth, misleadingly full mouthfeel, but really its finish is light.

It's 1.25am, and I'm watching the Ryder Cup. A great beer for the occassion. Does what it says on the bottle.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured a hazy deep orangish color with good carbonation leaving a nice white cap

S: This smells like Boundary Bay IPA

T: Bread comes out upfront, a very malty Pale Ale. Plenty of citrus here; grapefruit, hint at pine and a lot of apricot, with another hint at peach. Decent amount of hop bite and sugar on the back

M: Chewy, bigger bodied Pale Ale

O: Nice. I would try this

med thin body, unfiltered mouthfeel, crisp and slightly slick; moderate carbonaiton.
mild malt presence upfront with a hint of caramel and some grains.
nice citrus hop presence; strong lemon and lime notes with a hint of piney resign in the finish.
Overall; very clean and simple, unique hop notes and incredibly easy drinking.
It's description of being a "session" ale is right on; you could cruise through these all day!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Poured into a pint, deep golden body with slight haze; thick white head that falls to a nice crust and lacing. Smells of fruity hop, apricot; taste is hop bitter up front followed by subdued bready malt. Carbonation is medium and mouthfeel is creamier than a pale, making this beer both refreshing and filling. A nice session beer, I could drink this all night- and I will!
