2.98/5 rDev -12.4%
A standard American pale ale from Four String Brewing. Hops and light sweetness on the nose. Light rocky head on the pour. Grains and hops on the nose...LOTS of hops. Pours light amber in color. Hops up front with mild sweetness in the background that is the same on the aftertaste. Nothing astounding, but a decent enough canned APA.

12 ounce can, I believe this was just canned last week so it's pretty fresh. Served in a Sam Adams perfect pint glass, the beer pours a copper color with about a half inch off-white head that sticks around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy hops (grapefruit, citrus peel), along with some bready and caramel malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also a bit of pine hops noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick, smooth, and easy to drink. I think it's a good pale ale, I'd buy it again. $8.99 a 6-pack.

12oz can. Four String just started canning their beers a few months ago, a real plus for the Columbus, OH beer scene (which is awesome by the way).
Appearance - I drank it out of the can, but I'm giving this a 4 because the can art is fantastic.
Smell - Even just smelling through the can opening, I smell a great hop aroma. Not too overpowering for an APA. A little sweetness tingles the nosebuds.
Taste - A great mixture that allows the taster to experience the hoppy bitterness one expects in a pale ale, but is not overpowering and sour tasting.
Mouthfeel - crisp, smooth.
Overall - Perhaps it is some of my Columbus bias, but I am going to be picking this up much more for my cheap, keep in the fridge summer offering. I like it quite a bit.

Had this on draft at the brazenhead in grandview...
A-Dark blonde...slight head...little lacing
S-Fruity..not overwhelmingly so...citrus
T-slight bitterness...picked up some fruit...citrus..prob grapefruit...
M-good carbonation for the style...a bit thin but not too much so
O-I was told by the bartender that this is an IPA....when I tried it I was thinking that either this is not an IPA or a poor effort at one...finding out it is an APA...makes more sense...a pretty good offering from a brand new brewery in columbus...it needs improvement but as I said...a good start...I look forward to trying their other beer as well.

On tap in a pint glass at Woodlands on 3/16/12
Lazy caramel brown and a bit foggy. The head was poured as a thin, soapy layer that washes out and bunches up around the collar.
Candy fruit and floral hops layered over caramel and grainy bread, and an oily streak of citric tones make up the aroma. Taste-wise, a flash of oily, juicy citrus is exchanged for bitter orange rind, earth, grass and tired pine. Crushed aspirin litters the finish. The malts seem thin - dry, crisp and toasty. The feel is thin; very much one dimensional. Carbonation is unforgiving of the harsher flavors; overall, it's too much.
All in all, this is better than Backstage Blond, but this is nothing more than comfortable sub-par. This is a clear winner (if the competition is Neil House).
