2.85/5  rDev -20.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Amber colored liquid with some haze. Next to no head at all and very little lacings.

S: Smells of biscuit malts, honey sweet cookies and oatmeal.

T: Tastes some grapefruit. It is a bit sour and earthy with stale tones at the end.

M: Very thin body. Feels watery.

O: A disappointment. For a beer with this kind of name I expected it to have some attitude. But this one is just boring. Not worth the money.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

11.2 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, deep copper body with a couple inches of faintly yellowed suds. Little smattering of lace.

Smell: Biscuit tops, slight honeyish, toffee vibe but no promising sweet-scented accents to it. Mild citrus, spice, and woodsy hop notes.

Taste: Mild-toned biscuits with a thin veneer of honey and little incorporated sweetness. Bitter orange peel, slight spiciness, and a faint woodsiness to it. Moderate bitterness. Slight citric quality alongside the bitterness in the light finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Acceptable, fair, so-so -- all adjectives you don't want coming from a five dollar pale ale.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller Teku (semi-proper!). Poured yellow-orange with a one finger slightly off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, spices, fruit, earth, and earth hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, earth hop, citrus, and fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly decent brew. The aroma on this one was a little bit of a letdown unfortunately as it was very faint as far as intensity goes. There were some nice notes going on, but I just wish it was a little more pronounced. The flavor was a little bit better with a nice touch of citrus which helped to balance things out nicely. This made it a lot more enjoyable than the aroma gave off for me initially. Worth trying if you get the chance, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to do so.

This beer poured out as a very fizzy looking amber color with a strange looking soapy head on top. The smell was actually quite surprising, It had a very nice fruity aroma that I was not expecting. The smell is sweet and malty. The taste of the beer is malty, it's got some nutty flavors in there. There is a bit of hops in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel was decently carbonated with a pretty nice drinkability to it. Overall the beer was average in my opinion, I loved the aroma but everything else was moderate to me.

11.2oz bottle into a Mikkeller teku glass. The brew appears a hazed copper color with a yellowish froth of silky topping sitting atop. Unfortunately some chunks of yeast stir up when the cap is cracked and they make their way into the glass and stick in suspension. A light swirl revives a finger back to the surface and some spots of lace stick to the glass.

The aroma of this brew is almost tea-like. It reminds me of an herbal sort of ESB more than anything but with a candy sweetness to the nose almost smelling like belgian candy sugar. It is a bit leafy and grassy with a hint of sulfites as the brew warms up. Once the brew goes beyond ideal, a bit of a pissy cat quality emerges.

The flavor includes the previously mentioned tea-like astringency with an herbal flavoring that is somewhat grassy to straw-like. Some toffee malt is present to contrast but doesn't quite provide any sweetness.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall it is light and easy drinking but it has more of an ESB feel to it than anything else. Not a bad brew but also not something I would get thirsty for and want to seek out again.

The colour is orange-amber (25 EBC), the liquid is clear. The low short-lived head is beige. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is citric; lime-pine-grapefruit. Robust bitterness and a fruity sweetness. Bitter orange peels. Pleasant.

Robust bitter flavours dominates the taste. Lots of citric flavours (orange peels, grapefruits) and a jam-like sweetness. Sweetness and bitterness in the aftertaste plus hints of caramel malt and mango. The rather short end got a fragile hint of smoked meat and a fine malt sweetness.

The carbonation is medium strong; the bubbles are fresh, small and very many. The liquid is medium smooth and a little light.

This is a highly drinkable pale ale with a flavour if white orange peels that I recognise from other Evil Twin, To Øl and Omnipollo brews.

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

A clear amber brew with an off-white head leaving little lacing and small curtains.

Smelling toffee, butter scotch, honey, pine needles, resin, grape-fruit.

A taste of loaf of bread, then citric, grape-fruit peel.

Medium low carbonation, fresh with a small body, a dry finish.

A fresh, nice, hoppy APA.
