3.24/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Deep amber glass shows good clarity and holds a quarter finger of foam with a few spots of lace.

Smell: Hops are evident at arms length, closer stiff gives off some malt extract, and a lot of earthy hops, with a little papery oxidation (no date on bottle).

Taste: Malt and hops are well balanced, malt lasts longer and slowly fades out sweet and malty. The oxidation note is there, but not a deal breaker.

Feel: Medium body and carbonation, oily finish.

Overall: An earthy pale ale, pretty standard, would probably be great locally on tap but hasn't traveled well down to Texas. It's a new label, we may have had old stock dumped on us.

a fine pale ale, but i had higher hopes. its caramel colored body shows me right away that this thing is going to be balanced by bigger malts until maybe too high a level, and i was right. although the look is nice, clear and bright and holding over an inch of fluffy white head, the nose and taste are less exciting, certainly less sexy. the grain is a little big and a little sweet for the hops, and even without an english yeast profile, it almost tastes like an english pale because of the malts and more bitterness than other flavors coming from the hops. still its crispy and refreshing and not sweet in the taste, i appreciate that part, but i want a little more out of my hops in an american pale than this beer offers, more bitter and grassy than anything else. light feel is nice though, and unexpected for the color, this drinks real easy, almost watered down or something, medium carbonation is fine. overall not the best of goose island here, but their larger batch stuff so rarely is impressive anymore. still, i always buy their beer when i see it, too much good beer they do to not try everything! a solid if a little boring session right here.

Ten Hills Pale Ale brewed by Goose Island Beer Co., with an ABV of 6.20% This brew pours out a nice deep amber color with a nice white head. The smell is rich with grains , malts , and hops. Now for the taste, it is bold with hops. you pick up on a few grains and malts in this brew. Ten Hills Pale Ale has a decent balance to it. If you do not like hops this not the brew for you. The mouthfeel is bold with flavor, but this ale has a smooth aftertaste. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. Over all I'm giving Ten Hills Pale Ale a solid 4 out of 5 I would buy this brew again.

Ten Hills Pale Ale - Goose Island Beer Co.. Poured from the bottle into a glass, its got a two finger thick off-white head, lateral lacing, and a golden amber transparent body.

I can smell fruity hops, grains, and grassy malts.

The taste here is mellow hops and a livelier malt characteristic serving as the backbone. I'd say the hops have a sweetness to them , instead of the usual bitterness.

This brew's mouthfeel is clean and crisp. The hops do not linger one bit.

Overall, a 4 for Ten Hills Pale Ale - Goose Island Beer Co. For a "hoppy" beer, this is smooth and very sessionable.

A decent pale ale for sure, I just tend to like my pales ales a little more hop forward, bordering on ipa territory. At first I was thinking I wished I had tried this one before committing to an entire 6 pack, but then again on second thought, the drinkability is definitely high, so it won't be a chore polishing them off in a couple days.

From a bottle into a pint glass.

Copper in color with thin with foam and light lace on the glass.

Taste is light and hippy with a background sweetness. Nice malt balance to even the beer out and make solid in the drinkability category.

Clear copper pour with thin, clingy white head. Aromas of citrus and plums. Hop flavor starts, with malt becoming apparent in the middle. Finishes with a lingering semi-sweet herbal flavor. Pretty good stuff!
