look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a great straw color with a slight haze, nice tight foamy cap which leaves a nice lacing behind.

S: Light hops are first thing you notice and a sweet malt in the back of that. A light fruity aroma from the hops are of mainly apples and then some light citrus.

T: On the first sip you get a crisp fruity taste of biting into a fresh apple.

M: Nice med bodied to full almost a chewy feel but not quite.

O: Overall a very good beer with much to offer to the palate. Great beer for the fall sitting around the fire...mmm.

3.03/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

This brew pours a honey colored brown with a light 1/2 finger head which dissipates fairly quickly. A small amount of the original head remains on the top of the brew until the end. Light lacing.

The smell is a funky wet hay/yeasty smell. Apples and maybe pears are present. There is also an "earthy" smell.

The taste is sweet malts, some roasted malts, buttery, wheat with a gritty, grassy taste on the backend as well as light peppery hops on the backend.

The mouthfeel is tangy, due to the carbonation, dry, grassy and gritty.

This brew has potential but failed to "pop" for me. The smell and taste reminded me more a an Oktoberfest style than an English Pale Ale. This brew is too light on the bitterness in order to be a Pale Ale. Otherwise it is drinkable.
