grainy nose, caramel, fress mown grass
Hazy gold under a 3" stiff off-white foam cap, slowly descends and produces clingy, thick lace.
palate: rich grain, malt with a touch of caramel to butterscotch, medium body and carbonation, easy to drink, some light fruit, nice caramel aftertastes, not an overwhelming presence but very drinkable.
medium body, medium low carbonation, good hop finish.

Pours a hazy golden color with one finger of head that quickly settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of spotty lacing is left down the glass. Really dig the aroma. Light floral, grassy, and fruity hops lay over a dry bread malt base. Flavor starts out moderately hoppy with floral and fruity notes. Relatively dry malt base that is light and delivers the hops well. Just a touch of butterscotch that is common with certain English yeasts. The carbonation is spot on for a light, hoppy ale. I have not been the biggest fan of Badger Hill, but this beer changes my mind immensely. Maybe they are getting their recipes tuned in as there seems to be a big variance in the beer reviews.

A- Pours clear amber to walnut hue. Light white foamy head.
S- Light yeasty bready followed by fuity/pineyness of the galaxy and wakatu hops.
T- Light tropical fruit on the front end, bready malty sweetness hangout in the middle with a dry grapeskin finish.
M- Crisp light to mid body and easily palatable.
O- Decent Session Pale Ale. Would pair well with grilled foods or just as a stand alone.

This is by far the best offering Badger Hill has put forward. High Road offers a sessionable Pale that is a highly drinkable beer.

This beer pours a hazy copper color. The head is a quarter inch in height, and recedes slowly into a small cap of lacing. The aroma is of butterscotch galore. Yeah, diacetyl. I can detect some malt sweetness, but the butterscotch covers almost everything up. The taste isn't as over the top buttery, but it is still there. What I taste beyond the butter is enough to make me think this beer might amount to something when brewed properly (no diacetyl). The are some nice melon and floral notes that I like in a pale ale. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, and a smooth texture. Overall, this beer needs some work, but I do think I will try it agian once more latter on down the road before writing it off completely.

Tasted 26 October 2014.

Pour is amazing. Pale golden yellow, mostly clear, with vibrant visible carbonation. Billowy, fluffy, dense white head, 3+ fingers, cratering as it relaxed, and leaving gobs of lacing all over the glass. Excellent.

Smell is bright herbal hops with a citrus twist. Really nice, a touch spicy, a touch acidic. Very inviting.

Taste is okay. It's got the same elements as the smell, it's just got a whole lot less of each one. Clean and slightly grassy, with a very light mildly chalky bitter rounding in the back.

Feel is light and fluffy, a touch zippy. Carbonation flares up, then fades out a bit faster than I'd like. It dries out nicely, just as the flavors fade.

A really good, clean, mildly hoppy pale ale. If the taste were more like the smell, I'd love it. As it is, I like it, and would definitely drink more of it.
