The thin head on a dark straw colored body.
A rich aroma that favors the malt with a little pear and apple.
The taste is mildly fruity (apple and banana) with a touch of pine bitterness. It feels a little disjointed.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Nothing special but not bad.

He’brew Dry Hopped Session Ale has a very thick, creamy, off-white head (it actually exploded out of the bottle), and a somewhat hazy, amber appearance, with lots of lacing and streaming bubbles. Aroma is of pine, citrus, bready malts, and water. Taste is really nice- bready malts, over-ripe fruit, hop bitterness, cracker, and water. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and He’brew Genesis Dry Hopped Session Ale finishes fairly dry and very easy drinking. This is a winner, and I think you should try it!

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper amber with a smallish white head that goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet toasted caramel malts and green apple with a little resiny hop.

The flavor is sweet biscuity caramel malts with some fruity slightly resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent pale ale. A bit to toasty/biscuity for my tastes but with nice hops.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottle says 5.5%

A: Pours a hazy dark copper color. The head is a two finger yellow shade. While it fades to one finger relatively rapidly, at that point the head retains itself quite well.

S: There's a decent amount of piny, weed-like dankness juxtaposing touches of grapefruit. Malts definitely come through with prevalent caramel and toffee. Not my preferred style of pale ale, but definitely acceptable.

T: At first, there are wisps of dank weed backing a sweet-ish malt backbone, while the finish is mostly mild, pleasant grapefruit. Bitterness is well restrained. It kind of lacks flavor, to be honest. But there's no one element that turns me away, either: it's fairly harmonious and balanced.

M: This is where this brew succeeds. It's light-feeling, crisp, and goes down quite easy. The low carbonation actually works because the finish has a good dryness to it.

O: Not overly interesting, but pleasant enough. I don't really see how it's a session ale at 5.5%. Not a bad beer, and not one I'd ever turn down; doubt I'd buy it for myself again, though.

Clear amberb but not sparkling clear. Smallish head but maintains.
The aroma to me was mostly malts, I didn't pick up any hops really.
Taste is sweet malts and very light hops.
I wasn't much impressed with this offering, perhaps it was old. I didn't look for any best buy date.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.
