12 ounce bottle -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint

A- medium amber, fairly clear, large foamy head, unbelievable retention and lacing.

S - mostly pine, resin, floral, and biscuit.

T - mild but tasty with a distinct rye finish.

M - nicely carbonated, some aftertaste, but not offensive.

O- pretty nice beer, better than I expected.

A- Amber bodied ale out of the 12oz bottle into my tumbler. With some inspection particles can be seen floating around, maybe hops from the dry addition. A large head builds up with great retention and a foamy texture. Very nice thick lace rings coat the glass in a webbed manner.

S- Hops, malt and yeast come at me in a pretty balanced aroma. Hops bring some fresh citrus, pine and floral hints atop light caramel, toasted and cracked grain hints.

T- Like the nose, the taste is balanced out and fairly mellow (not in a bad way). Light caramel, toasted nut and biscuit malts support a clean citrus and floral forward hop profile. Slight yeast bread, spicy, fruit ester and grassy hints as well.

MF- Medium-light body with a moderately high carbonation. Smooth feel overall with a slight bitterness in the finish.

Balanced pale ale with a nice fresh citrus and floral hop feel.

A: Pours a darker amber brown. Ample head at pour scales back to a film on top of this beer. Some minor bits of chunky lacing present on the glass.

S: Leaves and brown sugar aroma.

T: Nicely balanced brew - not too bitter up front but just enough to keep it interesting. This is laced with a malt sweetner throughout.

M: Nice full carbonation. Could have a couple.

O: Really nice brew.

3.69/5  rDev +1.9%

12oz bottle purchased at Huckleberry’s in Spokane for $1.69. No freshness date, though it is Kosher. On the label, the malts (Specialty 2-Row, Munich, CaraMunich 40, Wheat, Dark Crystal) and hops (Warrior, Centennial, Cascade) are listed, along with what was used to dry hop (Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe).

Poured a hazy amber color. Lots of floaties could be seen when held up to light. Big, creamy off-white head that hung around for quite a while, leaving lots of beer-negligee style lace.

Despite all the types of hops listed on the label, what hop aroma there is tends to be soft and grassy. There’s a mild, bready malt scent as well.

A little more hoppy in the flavor department. It’s not a hop bomb, but it’s an agreeable amount for Schmalt’s goal of creating a session beer with hop flavor.

Somewhere between light and medium in the body, with a lightly oily mouthfeel.

Not a bad session beer, but its appearance makes me wonder at its age. Yet another brewery that needs to put “bottled on” or “best by” dates on their bottles. Despite that, if I could feel confident about how long it’s been sitting around, I’d definitely buy this again, as it seemed like a tasty warm weather beer.

3.89/5  rDev +7.5%

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Poco Grande flute glass.
Pours a hazy orange to amber color with a 2 finger fluffy white head. Leaves a nice amount of clumpy lacing. Body is hazy with some floating sediment.
Smells of malts up front and a nice orange/citrus and some cat piss aromas as it warms up. Would like to have a bigger aroma since this was dry hopped with Simcoe, Centennial and Cascade.
Very easy to drink this one, nice earthy hoppiness followed by a nice sweetness in the middle. The finish is a nice dry bitterness.
Overall a very nice beer, super sessionable for sure. I cold very easily put several of these down on a hot summer day or chilly fall. Something I will be buying again in the near future.
